Les Patineurs Opus 183 Emile Waldteufel
Howard Goodall selects the finest film soundtracks to have been released in recent weeks.
Highlights among Howard's selection of recently released movie music include Benjamin Wallfisch’s score to Summer in February. Wallfisch's lush music is sumptuously romantic and atmospheric, surging with all the expected Edwardian passions, and there are hauntingly beautiful cues from the virtuoso pianist Yuja Wang.
Also tonight, soundtracks for summer films Stuck in Love and After Earth, which starred Will Smith; an intriguing new take on the Snow White story, set in 1920s Seville with a sumptuous score to match; and a rediscovered, recently-released recording of archive material from Arthur of the Britons, featuring more than an hour of previously unheard music from the original master tapes.
