Walton - Spitfire Prelude & Fugue, etc

Label: SRC

Cat No: SRC107

Format: CD

Number of Discs: 1

Release Date: 17th July 2015



As well as Walton’s Spitfire Prelude and Fugue from the film 'First of the Few', this CD includes his Battle of Britain Suite originally written for the film 'Battle of Britain'. Walton’s wonderful film score was eventually rejected for the film company in favour of an effective but more populist score by Ron Goodwin. Here, Walton’s rejected masterpiece sits, in a transcription for band, alongside three great marches and his music from the films Henry V and Richard III

The Band of the Scots Guards play Walton’s challenging music with both subtlety and excitement in superb performances.
