"... the highlight is the music for Last Holiday of which The Beggar’s Theme was initially published as a violin/piano score ... Philip Lane once again has edited and arranged much of the music and written the accompanying booklet. This is an unexpected and most worthwhile issue." - Gramophone "The playing of the BBC Philharmonic is splendid. Conductor Rumon Gamba has helped make Chandos's film score series a leading survey of British cinema music and he seems to capture the mood and idiom of every score. The orchestra is recorded in a good broadcast studio ambience ... the sound, from a 24-bit master, is detailed, natural and warm." - ClassicsToday.com "... a composer well worthy of the attention ... as always, Rumon Gamba and the BBC Philharmonic set out this music in the best possible light, with the customary brilliance of Chandos’s engineering staff. Chagrin is a composer all of us, film music buffs and classical lovers alike, should get to know through this release and (one hopes) more to come. A winner." - Fanfare With this album, Rumon Gamba and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra shine the spotlight on Romanian-born film composer Francis Chagrin, perhaps best known for the 1950 Alec Guinness movie Last Holiday. The Philip Lane arrangements of Chagrin's scores receive their world premieres on this 2005 release.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
