Mr Turner

Terry Davies conducted Gary Yershon’s original Academy Award-nominated score for Mike Leigh directed feature ‘Mr Turner’, starring Timothy Spall.

“Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.”

The score was recorded and mixed by Nick Taylor and Andy Glen was the music editor.
