Product Details

The Lady In The Van is a big screen adaptation of writer Alan Bennett's celebrated memoir, directed by Nicholas Hytner. The film tells the true story of the relationship between Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who 'temporarily' parked her van in Bennett's London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming. Best known for his work in film and television, George Fenton is one of the UK's most successful composers, who has written scores for over 100 films and collaborated with some of the most influential filmmakers. His transition from television to film scoring began in 1982 with Richard Attenborough's biopic Gandhi for which he was nominated, with his collaborator Ravi Shankar, for an Academy Award. About the work on The Lady In The Van, George Fenton said: 'The Lady In The Van was a unique experience for me, writing a score for a story about someone I actually know (Alan Bennett) and someone I knew or at least met (Mary Shepherd). The film not only tells an extraordinary story but also celebrates an extraordinary character - her triumphs and failings. I hope the music in some way belongs to her because music was at her heart. She was a musician, albeit a cantankerous one. In the score I've tried to show both sides. A great opportunity for me certainly and a special occasion thanks to the beautiful playing of the Philharmonia Orchestra The BBC Concert Orchestra and the brilliant pianist Clare Hammond.'
