Notes & Reviews:

This splendidly performed and recorded album of film music by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett is the first such CD since one conducted by the composer on the Bayside label, which was deleted in 1996. Spanning 1967-1994, it offers a wide selection from his compositional career, including several works nominated for Oscar awards. Most rewarding is the very lovely Elegy for viola and orchestra, which was an adaptation of his score for the film Lady Caroline Lamb. Highly recommended!
