Editorial Reviews

Launched to coincide with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's John Barry concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, this new CD celebrates the wonderful motion-picture themes written by Britain's leading film score composer, in what would have been his 80th birthday year. The CD focuses on the many, varied soundtracks which Barry wrote outside of the James Bond series, and features 18 main themes and musical excerpts from key moments in the composer's 50 year career, spanning from Zulu (1964) to his final film score Enigma (2001), as well as the theme for the iconic 1970s television series The Persuaders. Highlights include many of the movies for which his music won prestigious awards - Born Free (two Academy Awards), Out Of Africa (Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Grammy Award), Dances With Wolves (Academy Award, Grammy Award) and Midnight Cowboy (Grammy Award) - plus Chaplin, King Kong, Mary, Queen Of Scots, Indecent Proposal, Somewhere In Time, The Ipcress File and many more.

Format: Audio CD
British conductor and film composer John Barry (1933-2011) began his musical career in the late Fifties and continued to write hit movie music for the next fifty-odd years, winning numerous awards and nominations in the process. The present disc is a tribute to the man, featuring longtime Barry arranger Nic Raine and others leading the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in some of Barry's most-familiar work.

But here's the thing: Barry's most-celebrated music is all the stuff he wrote for the James Bond series, starting with an arrangement of Monty Norman's theme for Dr. No and continuing with Bond scores for the succeeding twenty-five years. Yet there is no Bond music whatsoever on this tribute album. None. Zero. Zilch. There are eighteen tracks from eighteen separate films, but not a single Bond in sight. I tried to find an answer to this enigma in the accompanying booklet, but no dice. There is only a little information on the RPO but nothing about the music or its selection. I can only guess, therefore, that maybe producer and conductor Nic Raine decided not to include any Bond because it would be too obvious, that most Barry fans already had plenty of the man's Bond music on disc. But, really? Not even a single track? Someone new to John Barry's music would assume from this disc that he had nothing to do with the Bond films.

Anyway, first up on the program is Born Free, a score for which Barry won two Academy Awards. I've always found the music a little syrupy, but it's all a matter of taste. The public bought a ton of it, and it's become one of Barry's signature tunes. Nevertheless, despite its sometimes sentimental overtones the music comes up well under Maestro Raine, who gives it a vigorous workout.
