From the Manufacturer

The world premiere recording of the complete score to The Betsy composed by John Barry.

After recording Mister Moses, an early score from John Barry, in the same series of sessions we tackled a more mature offering from the composer, The Betsy. This is very much Barry in his more subdued and romantic mode... although there are a few touches of his Bond style in the more violent passages. Romance is certainly to the fore in his beautiful main theme–a waltz which, in its many variations and repetitions, displays Barry's elegance, sophistication and assured dramatic instinct. But it is the subtle scoring of scenes of incest and sexual intent that shows the composer at his most sensitive–especially the tortured solos for violin and cello, played here with so much feeling by Lucie Svehlova and Marek Elznic. After the rhythmic intensity of the earlier score it was quite a leap for the musicians to be expressive while also displaying the great restraint the music demanded.
