Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"With its laudable policy of expanding the film music repertoire on disc, this time Chandos has selected a composer well worthy of attention. In fact, Francis Chagrin (1905-1972) is the composer of a respectable body of concert music, including two symphonies, a piano concerto, plus a considerable catalog of chamber works... As always, Rumon Gamba and the BBC Philharmonic set out this music in the best possible light... Chagrin is a composer all of us - film music buffs and classical lover alike - should get to know through this release and (one hopes) more to come. A winner." -Paul A. Snook, Fanfare
