Lord Berners' film music

Lord Berners' film music
A new CD of the film music of Lord Berners brings to light an overlooked side of ‘the versatile peer’. The recording, released to coincide with the composer’s 125th anniversary, contains Berners’ scores to the films Champagne Charlie, Nicholas Nickleby and The Halfway House, all reconstructed by Philip Lane. Composed between 1944 and 1947, the scores are among the last pieces that Berners wrote. They are accompanied on this disc by music by Constant Lambert, a close friend of Berners who also conducted many of his ballets.
