Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Rumon Gamba and the BBC Concert Orchestra now present the first composer pair in Chandos' film music series, and the 'tandem' is no accident. There is the obvious link that the two composers were close friends, both musically and socially. But more to the point, the output of each in the field was limited, Lambert scoring only one documentary and one feature film, Lord Berners two complete features while contributing a song and dance to another. This output is here conveniently represented on a single well-filled disc.

Gramophone Magazine
The Halfway House makes a delightful suite, complete with choral peroration, that ought to find a place in the concert hall. Sympathetic performances throughout in a generous 80-minute CD.

The Guardian
You can't fault the performances, which are fiercely conducted by Rumon Gamba, and played with great finesse by the BBC Concert Orchestra. Vocalist Mary Carewe, meanwhile, is glorious.
