Sir Richard Rodney Bennett (1936Ð2012) excelled in several musical careers. In addition to film scores, he composed concert works in a variety of styles; he was also an accomplished jazz pianist and a popular cabaret performer. His elegant and glamorous music for Murder on the Orient Express spotlights two remarkable themes: a posh, 1930s-style piano-based main title and a sophisticated, melodious waltz. Emphasizing style over menace (but not lacking in the latter), BennettÕs score was often cited as one of his finest contributions to the genre. Quartet Records is particularly pleased, so soon after BennettÕs lamentable passing, to make the Capitol Records soundtrack LP of Murder (containing almost every cue) once again available to eager fans. Sourced from the original EMI album master and featuring new liner notes by Frank K. DeWaldÑillustrated with numerous production stillsÑthis latest addition to the Quartet catalog (which previously included BennettÕs Lady Caroline Lamb) features the Royal Opera House Orchestra, Covent Garden, conducted by Marcus Dods.
