In 20th-century colonial Kenya, a Danish baroness/plantation owner has a passionate love affair with a free-spirited big-game hunter.
So many of John Barry's themes are instantly recognisable. Out of Africa must qualify as amongst the most popular of all, with its soaring French horns opening into high-range strings and flute. It's had countless recordings and concert arrangements, and so it's very familiarity is the benchmark by which this new recording stands. And happily, Joel McNeely and the RSNO rise to the occasion. Beguilingly there are only 35 minutes of score in the 160-minute movie, a fact that Barry has often cited when self-deprecatorily glossing over the score's Oscar win. The truth of the matter is that by seeing beyond the stunning photography and into what the film was really about, he communicates at a personal level that doubly impresses its audience. The epic romance could have been set anywhere, but by allowing the backdrop to speak for itself, we're respectfully in his debt for drawing attention to nothing less than the passion of the heart. --Paul Tonks
