Reviews

'Rumon Gamba and the BBC Philharmonic deserve full credit for taking these pieces seriously' recordings are first-rate.'
BBC Music Magazine

'A fine showcase of a melodically gifted and subtle English composer of film scores'.
Gramophone

'What emerges from the two Alwyn discs is a composer who, perhaps more than any other, managed to convey the feelings and motivations of characters and situations that, whilst innately British, were nevertheless so truthfully portrayed as to achieve universal appeal that continues to this day.'

Music from the Movies

‘From the gusto of the playing throughout it seems clear that the BBC Philharmonic enjoyed making this disc: Understandably so.’
Gramophone on CHAN 9774 (The Film Music of Georges Auric)

‘Stirring stuff, in performances and a recording well up to the standard of Rumon Gamba’s other British film-music discs for Chandos.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9896 (The Film Music of Arthur Bliss)

‘Conductor Rumon Gamba knows just how to levitate Bennett’s celebrated train waltz theme and the response of his orchestra throughout this disc suggests that they can turn their hand to the idiom of this music at the flick of a wrist.’
Gramophone on CHAN 9867 (The Film Music of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett)

'All film enthusiasts will want to have this disc prominently displayed in their collection.'
Fanfare
