Gramophone “Richard Rodney Bennett possesses a natural flair for composing for both big screen or small. The concept of presenting the music in suites (no credit here for the arrangers) makes the best possible case for it, circumventing the problems encountered on the original soundtracks where fragmentation sometimes marrs enjoyment. Conductor Rumon Gamba knows just how to levitate Bennett’s celebrated train waltz theme, and the response of his orchestra throughout this disc suggests that they can turn their hand to the idiom of this music at the flick of a wrist.”
