A legend in British concert halls, Sir Malcolm Arnold was also in demand as a composer of film music in Hollywood and beyond.
Including an overture for the New York première, the score for The Roots of Heaven adds drama and atmosphere to the story of one man’s crusade to save African elephants from extinction. David Copperfield was Arnold’s last film score and one of his most expressive and memorable, summed up as ‘truly amazing’ by director Delbert Mann. ClassicsToday.com has described this recording as ‘a treat for Arnold fans and movie buffs alike’.
This recording of two of Sir Malcolm Arnold’s classic film scores was first released in 2001 on the Marco Polo label as part of the celebrations marking the composer’s 80th birthday. With restorations and arrangements approved by the composer, this has long been one of our best film music recordings, and richly deserving of repositioning into the mainstream Naxos catalogue.
The original release was acclaimed by ClassicsToday.com as being composed in “a style that suits the film[s] perfectly” and that “William Stromberg and the Moscow Symphony… turn in marvelous performances”. Gramophone also stated of this recording that “there can be no complaints about Sir Malcolm Arnold's superb contribution” to the film music genre.
