“...this sumptuously rich documentary….a glorious sight of nature…” Mail on Sunday
Three very different films make up the BBC Natural History unit series Earth’s Greatest Spectacles.
The Forests of New England and the riotous colour of the Fall - with folksongs from the northern Appalachians pervading a score full of the magic of the forest.
The northern winter wasteland of Svalbard coming alive with the return of the sun - momentous natural events brought to life with music both metronomic and uplifting.
And Okavango, part of the year practically a desert and the rest of the time the world’s largest inland river delta - with the voices and percussion of Africa in a sweeping cinematic score.
The ensemble of musicians are driven by the Emperor Quartet - the nucleus of Peter Gabriel’s New Blood Orchestra. Our special guest artist is Jacqui Dankworth.
