BBC Concert Orchestra
The British composerís love for sumptuous Hollywood scoring flows through his albumís opening track, Variations on a Heroic Theme, a lion-hearted showcase for every instrument of the orchestra. The Orchid Classics recording trains the spotlight on the BBC Concert Orchestra, in outstanding form at the Watford Colosseum under the direction of Levon Parikian. Conductor and musicians bring out the rich tonal colours, atmospheric impressions and inventive brilliance of Raptures, originally conceived for string quartet and transformed for this recording into a five-movement symphonic suite.
A quick glance at Stuart Hancockís biography reveals the striking breadth of his work. His credits include everything from the score to BBC1ís primetime fantasy drama Atlantis to the BASCA British Composer Award-winning Snapshot Songs, a pioneering project for orchestra, choir and soloists. Raptures underlines his status as one of todayís most versatile and engaging composers.
