Masquerade

Sunday, 03 March 2002 10:25

3rd March 2002: Ford A. Thaxton reported to the John Barry discussion group that next week he is going into the studio and edit and master the album. Right now the plan is to have the CD contain the entire score and then a suite of original source cues that Barry composed for the film (i.e like the HAMMETT CD).
After it's assembled, he is going to submit to both MGM and John Barry for their approval.
Assuming they wish no changes, work begins on the artwork and such. The CD will sound great!!! The the original 32 Digital masters were discovered, so it will sound better then ever.

James FitzPatrick wrote: Having now spoken to "the horse's mouth" - namely Luc of Prometheus Records, I can inform you that MAY will be the official release month for Masquerade and that it is more likely to be late May rather than early.

This is because Prometheus are releasing FLESH & BLOOD in March and they like to have a bit of a gap between each release. This also makes perfect economic sense as being a small label there is always the cinsideration of outgoings, cashflow etc...

Ford A. Thaxton reports on the John Barry discussion group "After a rather long search we just this week found the digital multi-track masters to the score and production on the master started on Friday.

It will be coming out very shortly, it will be the next release from the PROMETHEUS Club right after the expanded CD release of FLESH + BLOOD by Basil Poledouris.

The sound is INCREDIBLE!!! It will be well worth the wait."

The Bridgewater Hall - Music of John Barry November 2018

The Music of John Barry

Saturday 10 November 7.30pm
The Bridgewater Hall
Lower Mosley Street
Manchester, M2 3WS

Nicholas Dodd conductor
Andrew Collins presenter
Manchester Camerata

John Barry created some of the most memorable and recognisable film scores of the 20th century, such as Midnight Cowboy, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, Zulu and of course much of the music from the James Bond series; his versatility and originality were peerless. His death in 2011 deprived cinema of a true musical great. This concert pays tribute to his life and music with a carefully selected programme, conducted by Nicholas Dodd, who collaborated closely with the composer on his later films. Nicholas Dodd is regarded as one of the leading conductors and orchestrators of Hollywood film music and is a noted expert on, and performer of John Barry’s music. In fact, every James Bond movie from the last 10 years bears his signature.
