Andrew Pearce’s Cinema Symphony is a huge passionate work that immediately came across as one big ode to the most epic symphonic scores of the 20th Century
One to be applauded for combining the sound of Hollywood with the world of classical material
It is a dazzling treat for the ears, beautifully constructed, epic in nature
One of the best albums I’ve heard all year
Elegy is a tranquil and reflective piece written for solo violin and chamber orchestra. The violin echoes strains of love lost and a gypsy type flavour in this lament. Miriam has a wonderful tone and conveys the feelings of the piece nicely
Elegy for Violin and Orchestra from Cinema Symphony. This is the first time Moviescore Media has released a non soundtrack. Stunning symphonic debut from composer Andrew Pearce, it’s partially homage but assembled as a fresh and unique work that becomes the composer‘s own. Uniformly excellent material performed by the Royal Scottish National orchestra under José Serebrier. Wide dynamics and credible soundstage. This cut is a full-fledged romantic violin piece that will tear your heartstrings. Beautiful work by soloist Miriam Kramer and a keeper that is becoming well worn.
