The Film Music of Doreen Carwithen
9-Apr-2011 - Dutton Epoch has released The Film Music of Doreen Carwithen, with music from seven of the thirty-four films scored by this British composer between 1947 and 1954. In 1947, she was the only female composer chosen from the RAM to be apprentice to the newly instituted J Arthur Rank Apprenticeship Scheme, which taught the art of film music. The films represented here range from drama (To the Public Danger, Boys in Brown, Mantrap, Three Cases of Murder) and the ‘Boy’s Own’ adventure yarn Men of Sherwood Forest to pictorial informative documentaries (East Anglian Holiday, Travel Royal). Carwithen is adept in providing the right mood and scoring for each of these titles. From the gentle pastoralism of East Anglian Holiday and the swashbuckling Men of Sherwood Forest through to the bold and dramatic scores for Boys in Brown, Mantrap, Three Cases of Murder and To the Public Danger, an enjoyable and varied listening experience is ensured.
