BBC: Sherlock [2012]
Available: March 27, 2012
Released By: Silva Screen Music
Composer: David Arnold/Michael Price







 The intelligent, funny and thrilling soundtrack to the fast-paced contemporary hit remake of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic.

Composed by David Arnold (Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Hot Fuzz, Paul, Little Britain) and Michael Price (The Inbetweeners Movie, Hot Fuzz, Paul) the soundtrack encompasses a small orchestra, samples and soloists. This highly acclaimed score has received BAFTA and Emmy nominations and won an RTS Television Award. The follow-up soundtrack to the second series of Sherlock, currently aired on the BBC, is scheduled to be released in May 2012 to coincide with the airing of the second season in the United States.

“If David Arnold and Michael Price did not exist, it would be necessary for man to invent them. Their contribution to Sherlock is immeasurable. Thrilling, cheeky, sinister, playful and simply world-class…the music's not bad either.”
- Mark Gatiss (Sherlock and League of Gentlemen creator)

The BBC One season of three Sherlock Holmes films was the summer hit of 2010 with over 7.5m viewers watching the first episode. This contemporary adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic novel was created by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Coupling) and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Doctor Who) and the series stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes, Martin Freeman as Doctor Watson and Rupert Graves as Inspector Lestrade.

This led to a five-year working relationship encompassing a number of highly successful film scores in London, LA and Prague, and concerts in Berlin, New York, San Francisco and Geneva. Michael has worked on a number of major films including the Academy Award winning feature Children of Men, comedy hit, Hot Fuzz, and Quantum of Solace.

Fantastic Music... I am huge fan of David Arnold's work and looking to hear more from Michael Price. Music is always done well for shows like this and always bring a sense of adventure and fun from each track. I am sure that this will make you happy... as it has done for my ears, yes cheesy I know. It doesn't not this mean this is that type of score, it is a great piece for you and your score collection.
