 Re: Clarinet Music in Movies (The King's Speech)

Not in the movies, but I thought I'd raise a related one: old radio dramas often had original music written for them. I like listening to old programmes from the BBC, and if you can get the BBC Sounds app to work (I'm not sure you can if you are outside the UK) there are lots to choose from. I'm currently listening to "Journey Into Space - The Red Planet", which is a slightly cheesy sci-fi series from the 1950s, with a brilliant spacey soundtrack that I think may have been played live during the recording of the play. The instrumentation is all winds, with clarinet much to the fore. I assume the players were either musicians employed by the BBC or session musicians. They certainly don't seem to have been considered worth a mention in the credits! The credits do say the music was composed and conducted by Van Phillips; he might be the same Oscar Van Phillips, an American composer who wrote film music and some TV eg Ren & Stimpy show. As I say it's excellent music in the mid-20th century idiom, which I'd listen to in its own right if I could. Highly recommended.
