Parade’s End

For Dirk Brossé, “the emotion is in the music” in this period drama.

Working out of Galaxy Studios in Belgium, Air-Edel composer Dirk Brossé teamed up with music supervisor Maggie Rodford to produce the soundtrack to Susanna White’s BAFTA-nominated miniseries, ‘Parade’s End’ starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

‘Parade’s End’ was a full team effort, with Air-Edel music editor Andy Glen also working on the show, whilst the first two episodes were engineered and mixed by Air-Edel’s Nick Taylor, who traveled to Belgium alongside Maggie and Dirk to work on the project.

The five-part BBC/HBO/VRT series is a television adaptation of the tetralogy of novels (1924-28) of the same name by Ford Madox Ford, it premiered on BBC Two on 24 August 2012 and on HBO on 26 February 2013.

The series received widespread critical acclaim and is often cited as “the highbrow ‘Downton Abbey’.  In its BBC Two premiere, it attracted 3.5 million viewers, making it BBC Two’s most watched drama since ‘Rome’ aired in 2005. The miniseries received six BAFTA TV nominations including Best Actress for Rebecca Hall and five Primetime Emmy Award nominations including Best Adapted Screenplay for Tom Stoppard and Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch. It won Best Costume Design at the BAFTAs.  To read more click here.
