Patrick Doyle's Wah-Wah
14-Dec-2006 - Varèse Sarabande has released Wah-Wah, acclaimed actor Richard E. Grant’s semi-autobiographical “coming-of-age at the end of an age” story, told through the eyes of young Ralph Compton. Set during the last gasp of the British Empire in Swaziland, South East Africa, in 1969, the plot focuses on the dysfunctional Compton family whose gradual disintegration mirrors the end of British rule. The sumptuously beautiful score is by the great Scottish composer Patrick Doyle. His music for Kenneth Branagh’s productions of Shakespeare’s Henry V, Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing earned him international acclaim., not to mention Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, Sense and Sensibility, Calendar Girls and Nanny McPhee. The CD will also feature an original piano suite of themes from the score, composed and performed by Patrick Doyle.
