Among the sumptuous and deeply romantic music on this disc is the substantial selection from Walton’s score for Richard III – ‘A Shakespearian Scenario’ as the arranger, Christopher Palmer, calls it; colourful and richly detailed music, the suite is conducted by Sir Neville Marriner and makes a fitting tribute to William Walton. The music for Richard III was Walton’s last major film score, and this disc presented the world premiere recording of it, with American Record Guide describing it as ‘the peer of anything else that has been composed for the cinema’.

This great film score is complemented here with music by Walton for two other dramatic projects, in which listeners will find much more to admire. The original Chandos series sought to collect not only music from well-known films, but also music from less well-known productions, both on screen and in the theatre, particularly music that had achieved no life away from the original soundtrack. Christopher Palmer arranged this music into suites and other concert works, preserving as much as feasible from the original material, sensitively editing where necessary, and giving some great scores a fresh lease of life. The Fanfare and March from Walton’s music for Gielgud’s wartime theatre production of Macbeth are rarely heard and with their suggestion of Elizabethan dance-music anticipate the film score for Henry V. Vintage Walton material is also found in the music for Major Barbara, a film that ought to be better known, certainly for its music.

The contribution by one of the world’s great dramatic actors, speaking Shakespeare’s verses, are spine-tingling, and it is a thrill to have these classic recordings of Walton’s beautiful music for film and theatre available in digitally remastered sound, re-released in contemporary packaging, and at only Classics price.

It may well be that the Walton series, and in particular this part of it, is what record collectors will still be fondly recalling in mid-21st Century when they look back at the first two decades of Chandos. They are worthy of being retained in the catalogue at least that long. Not to be missed.
