Britten's early score for Agatha Christie thriller Love From a Stranger is coupled with scores by Roberto Gerhard - for Lindsay Anderson's intense 1963 drama This Sporting Life - Richard Rodney Bennett's lush, romantic score to The Return of the Soldier, and Elisabeth Lutyens' superlatively creepy music for 60s horror film The Skull.

REVIEWS

'NMC has become the label of choice for every aficionado of contemporary British music. Lutyens's hair-raising score is a fascinating relic from the 1960s … Polished performances hail from the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jac van Steen.'  The Times

'Britten's score for Trafalgar Films' feature of the Agatha Christie thriller Love From a Stranger (1937) is packed with lapidary activity. The mood varies between jolly caper, mysterious icy romance and breathy anticipation'  MusicWeb International
