About

Howard Blake is a living composer best known for his film scores (a.o. Snowman). This album features new classical compositions by Howard Blake, all world premiere recordings.

There is a story to the way Howard Blake and Sir Neville Marriner got to know each other: through the fact that they both have a house in Kensington and use the same hair dresser, who made the connection.

PentaTone has made a video in which Howard Blake tells the story how this album came about.
