A chance sighting of part of the manuscript in a Brighton rubbish skip allows us to hear for the first time all the music that Bax wrote for David Lean’s classic 1948 film of Oliver Twist. Sumptuously recorded and with a fascinating booklet, though 30 brief self-contained cues (over an hour’s music) do make it a little bitty. The most memorable music is the stirring march from the 1942 film Malta GC.
