薰衣草女士 Ladies in Lavender (2004)

奈傑爾·赫斯 Nigel Hess (1953 – )



Ladies in Lavender is a 2004 movie directed by Charles Dance, based on a story by William J Locke.  As the legendary movie critic Robert K. Elder put it, the film “exemplified that kind of polite, underdramatic … staging that can … provide a surgical examination of English society”.  This accompanying music does exactly that—polite, understated, peaceful. The violin is perfect for the long lyrical lines in the main theme, with ample opportunities for the soloist to impart his own interpretation of the music.

The movie soundtracks were originally performed by the famed violinist Joshua Bell with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Nigel Hess won a nomination for Best Soundtrack Composer to the Classical BRIT Awards for his work.
