Reliably informed

The iconic first few notes of Alexander Proudlock’s Dancing Between The Raindrops, performed by The Northern Film Orchestra and recorded at Manchester’s iconic Stoller Hall, sound like the entry into a magical wonderland.

The unity of the orchestra is notable, the tension euphoric. Suspense builds at the beginning of this classical piece, tremolo strings building and building with the ever-present tinkle of a piano, rising, rising and the deep notes from a cello, before the enticing notes rises into stunning unity. We’re in some enchanted world, pushing our way through thick, snow-laden forests or gazing in wide-eyed wonder at strange lands. If you’re a fan of classical music, you will absolutely appreciate this piece, full of contrast, constantly playing on the element of suspense and drama.
