Title - 'Poldark: Music From The TV Series'
Artist - Anne Dudley

Set in the late 18th-century, Ross Poldark returns to his Cornish tin mines after spending three years in the army, leaving behind his sweetheart Elizabeth. On his return from fighting in America he finds his father dead, his estate in ruins and Elizabeth engaged to another man. In need of help he takes on a new kitchen maid, Demelza, and a new chapter begins!

Already beloved across the pond - both the original TV series from back in the day, and this brand new version - the score of 'Poldark' is what carries it along. Composer Anne Dudley manages this fine balancing act perfectly, as her tracks seem to interweave beautifully with the scenery being projected at the time on screen.

In truth, the music delightfully underscores the sweeping Cornish landscapes and passionate love story that unfolds before our very eyes. Featuring the solo violin, it is based, albeit loosely, on the modality found in Cornish folk music. Orchestrated for violin, harp, piano and string orchestra with occasional electronic elements, you get the feeling that the woman born in Beckenham, Kent, most assuredly landed her "dream job" with this soundtrack.

In fact, if you were not aware, Dudley is an English composer, sure, but also a well-renowned pop musician! Indeed, Dudley was the first BBC Concert Orchestra's Composer in Association in 2001 and has since worked in both the classical and pop genres. That all said, she is perhaps best known as one of the core members of the synthpop 80's/90's band Art of Noise.
