5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Film Music, 28 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Arnold: Film Music (Audio CD)
This CD provides fine renditions of incidental music from several great films. Colonel Bogey will be known to many from "Kwai" but the music from Hobson's Choice and Inn of the sixth Happiness are just as evocative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first Volume of Film Music of Sir Malcolm Arnold!!!!, 1 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Arnold: Film Music (Audio CD)
I had to buy this CD of Sir Malcolm Arnold's Film Music for his score of the Inn of the Sixth Happiness starring Ingrid Bergman. I did see this very successful film recently. The music has always appealed to me and I'm glad that Chandos has issued Volume 1 of some of Arnold's film music in 2000. It's conducted by Richard Hickox and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, who respond very well to Hickox's flamboyant style. They play the Inn of the Sixth Happiness Suite brilliantly, especially the London Prelude, with the power of the strings driving the big tune.
I also liked their strong and sensitive playing of the Bridge on the River Kwai Suite and Whistle Down the Wind, all skilfully arranged by Christopher Palmer, who also does the very informative booklet.

An excellent recording of Arnold's best film music, beautifully arranged by Christopher Palmer. Such lyricism, and really stirring. The LSO under Hickox give it their all.
