leave a comment »

John Barry may have passed away in January, but the film score titan has hardly been forgotten.  Kritzerland just scored a quick sell-out on its new edition of Barry’s score to Until September, while Quartet Records has reissued The Knack…and How to Get It on CD.  The Classic Brit Awards has announced that Barry will be the first-ever posthumous recipient of an award, while a June 20 concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall will celebrate his legacy with performances and remembrances from Sir George Martin, Michael Caine, David Arnold, Don Black, Timothy Dalton and others.

Silva Screen Records draws on its back catalogue for the new digital release John Barry: The Classic Scores.  The more classically-oriented oeuvre of the five-time Oscar winner is the focus of this digital-only collection which features re-recordings by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra of six Barry scores:  the Oscar-winning The Lion in Winter (1968), Mary Queen Of Scots (1971), Robin and Marian (1976), The Last Valley (1971), Walkabout (1971) and Zulu (1964).

John Barry: The Classic Scores is available beginning May 3 from Silva Screen Records and can be purchased on iTunes and and Napster, among others.  Hit the jump for the complete track listing of all six scores.
