Title: Walton's musical score to Henry V to be performed in London
Post by: patmos.beje on September 28, 2019, 07:38:50 am

Dominic Sewell's reconstruction of Walton's score for Olivier's 1944 film Henry V is to be performed with a live screening of the film at the Royal Festival Hall in November.  The conductor is Frank Strobel.  See: See: https://www.philharmonia.co.uk/concerts/2494

I hope this bodes well for a CD release of the entire score. 

From Dominic Sewells Facebook page:

A lovely opportunity to hear Walton's original music in context with Olivier's film. It was a reconstruction job I was tasked with in 2007, and spent many sleepless nights aurally transcribing it and proofreading against any published or holograph score fragments (some of which we had to track down from California to Rome!)

I wonder if this is in connection with the film about Henry V that will be released on October 11?

I don't know but I suspect not.  There have been several performances of Walton's reconstructed score in the last few years.  There has been at least two in Germany.
