A Compilation of Tasteful Film Music

A Compilation of Tasteful Film Music

Sinfini, John Evans
Every so often a CD lands on your desk, travels to the player and stays there, going round and round and round…
So I’ll just hit the pause button to read the name on that shiny piece of plastic – Final Cut by the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet. Right, press play again…

What’s the appeal? Well, it’s guitar music and who doesn’t like the guitar? Mellifluous, musical, magical – especially so in the fingers of the Aquarelle four who formed in 1998 at the Royal Northern College of Music and have been performing ever since.
Final Cut is a compilation of tasteful film music arrangements and pieces used in film. No Star Wars here; we’re talking Django Reinhardt’s Minor Swing from Chocolat, Michael Nyman’s The Heart Asks Pleasure First from The Piano, even Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells from the Exorcist. In all, 19 pieces exquisitely and memorably played. They’ll be going round and round in your head long after you’ve turned off the CD player.
