JOHNBARRY the mono years

A three CD box set released in association with Geoff Leonard, biographer and world authority on the life and work of the great British film composer, John Barry.

“If you think in terms of the sixties as a revolution in England, it was music-led. The Beatles led the rock ‘n’ roll and John Barry led the movie music.” MICHAEL CAINE

“John’s got this facility of writing a tune, a very simple tune and that’s the most difficult one to write of all. The one that you think you must have heard somewhere before but you haven’t and he’s got the gift. It’s quite hard to write a simple tune. It’s quite easy to write a complicated one.” GEORGE MARTIN

A three CD box set released in association with Geoff Leonard, biographer and world authority on the life and work of the great British film composer, John Barry.

The edition includes every single John Barry Seven A & B side published between 1957 and 1962 in true mono housed together under one roof for the very first time. A unique opportunity to listen to these seminal recordings as they were originally heard.

The first bona fide CD appearance of the “Stringbeat” LP in mono, together with various singles also making their mono debuts on CD.

A chronological audio history of the group combined with authoritative booklet notes and rare period photos/images.

The inclusion of impossible rarities, including the debut CD release of the original version of ‘Three Little Fishes’ plus many sought-after Chappell Music Library recordings.

A fascinating insight into John Barry’s early work as a film composer, comprising as it does The James Bond Theme and his scores for Beat Girl, Never Let Go and The Amorous Prawn.

The Legend of The Lone Ranger on CD

Tuesday, 04 December 2018 09:25

lone rangercd02"After years of exhaustive searches for session masters proved unsuccessful, Intrada worked with ITV and current soundtrack license holder UMG to finally premiere the rare 1981 album in CD format, working from pristine copies of the album itself (even these masters remain AWOL) and utilizing state-of-the-art NoNoise technology that addressed all surface noise without sacrificing any vivid dynamics of the original score, which was recorded in France under Barry’s direction.

Though the album is admittedly brief, it remains a sensational listening experience! Flipper-style booklet cover features original MCA album artwork plus alternate campaign with liner notes by John Barry authority, Jon Burlingame. CD produced by Douglass Fake, Roger Feigelson performs executive producer chores. Dan Wallin records and mixes, John Barry composes and conducts. Intrada Special Collection CD available while quantities and interest remain!"

Lolita Sheet Music Crop252

Book and Lyrics by ALAN JAY LERNER
Music by JOHN BARRY
Based on the book "Lolita" Vladimir Nabokov
FEBRUARY 23 - MARCH 3, 2019

Company Website

Based on the 1955 novel Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Lolita, My Love, which originally closed in Boston in 1971, closely follows the legendary novel: a college professor named Humbert Humbert becomes fascinated by and starts to seduce his landlady's young daughter, Dolores "Lolita" Haze. The fascination quickly turns into obsession, and soon a whirlwind race across the US begins.  ”For this Mufti presentation, Erik Haagensen (Darling of the Day and The Day Before Spring in Mufti) has created a new script, edited together from Lerner’s assorted drafts, each vastly different from the others. Haagensen has stated that “Now audiences will have a chance to hear [Lolita] on stage and decide for themselves what they think of this unquestionably daring musical that begins as a black comedy and ends in tragedy.” Nabokov himself has said “Mr. Lerner is most talented and an excellent classicist. If you have to make a musical of ‘Lolita,’ he is the man to do it”.

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

Website

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.
