Colditz Soundtrack

From Simon @ Sofa PR comes news of the Colditz Soundtrack by Richard Harvey...

Label: Virgin/ EMI
Release: 04.04.2005

One of the predicted highlights of the 2005 viewing schedules is ITV’s new 2 part mini-series ‘Colditz’, which will be screened on Sunday 27th & Monday 28th March.

A highly-charged tale of friendship, betrayal and the Secret Service, it tells the story of three prisoners of war who embark on a dangerous journey which will change their lives forever... The three British soldiers form a bond as they attempt to escape from a German prisoner of war camp during the early years of the Second World War.

It is set at a menacing Gothic castle, a forbidding fortress from which 'no-one ever escapes' - Colditz.

With an all star cast featuring Laurence Fox, Tom Hardy, Damian Lewis, Timothy West, James Fox and Sophia Myles - it’s lavish viewing and Colditz has a score to match - by the acclaimed Richard Harvey.

Harvey has scored over thirty feature films, alongside countless acclaimed television dramas - including 'Jane Eyre', 'Game, Set and Match', 'Alan Bleasdale's - GBH'.

He has also composed a massive eco-musical, 'Plague and the Moonflower' with Ralph Steadman and a concerto for guitar and orchestra 'Concerto Antico' for John Williams (with the London Symphony Orchestra).

Richard is also an occasional guest conductor and a virtuoso performer on a vast array of instruments - blown, plucked, keyed, bowed, beaten and programmed... Colditz is one of his most beautiful, dramatic & heartfelt scores yet. His website can be found at:
