The Red Shoes / Horoscope - Brian Easdale / Constant Lambert

The Red Shoes / Horoscope
Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's "The Red Shoes" of 1948 is simply one of the most extraordinary and important British films in cinema history. An exuberant, lavish, daring, technicolor epic that has influenced generations of filmmakers, artists, and aspiring ballerinas. Although made in the late forties, "The Red Shoes" is decades ahead of it¹s time. It is shown regularly on television and is regarded as the definitive film about the world of dance. Brian Easdale, who won an Oscar for his score, developed his sensuous, esoteric style whilst studying Indian music in Calcutta and was described by Powell as “the ideal collaborator". For Powell went on to create soundtracks for "The Small Back Room", "The Elusive Pimpernel", "Gone To Earth”, "The Battle Of The River Plate", "Peeping Tom" and "Queens Guards". This is an internationally celebrated piece of work. In the eighties Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorcese did much to bring attention to Powell¹s work which they both cited as a major influence. Also, in the eighties Kate Bush made a tribute album about "The Red Shoes" that became an enormous hit In the best most natural way, "The Red Shoes" is an essay in camp that has influenced generations of filmmakers, artists, musicians, designers and aspiring ballerinas. As a bonus to this fine package is the Soundtrack to "Horoscope" by Constant Lambert, which is considered to be one of the finest ballets from the 20th century
