This digital-only album is effectively the sound track to the new DVD ‘Symphonic Visions’ and presents the marvellous music by Ed Hughes for silent films (both new and old). His scores for the early classics for chamber ensemble (Alice in Wonderland and Voyage to the Moon) and piano (The Nose) are matched by his orchestral masterpiece for the new cityscape feature ‘Brighton: Symphony of a City’, by producer/director Lizzie Thynne. Rounded off by another piano score, ‘Night Music’, written for the RAF Archive film about the building of Lancaster bombers, but a work which stands on its own just as well.

Ed Hughes is a master of large scale works and these movie scores are much more traditionally styled than his chamber and operatic work but whichever genre is chosen, his reputation as a highly inventive and skilled composer grows steadily.

You can find the DVD here. Please note the DVD is not available digitally due to copyright restrictions.
