Quartet Records and Studio Canal present a limited CD reissue of Claude Bolling’s classy, masterful orchestral score for The Awakening (1980, directed by Mike Newell). Starring Charlton Heston and Susannah York, the film is about an archeologist who discovers his daughter is possessed by the spirit of an Egyptian monarch, Queen Kara. To save mankind he must destroy her.

Claude Bolling creates an intense atmosphere with colorful orchestration, subtle motives, a beautiful love theme and the unforgettable “Queen Kara” theme—all demonstrating his ability to meet any musical challenge. The score is brilliantly performed by The London Studio Orchestra under the baton of Marcus Dods.

This new limited edition has been slightly remastered by Chris Malone, addressing and correcting the balance and some inert imperfections that were in the original master and our previous edition, bringing it weight and clarity. Original “Queen Kara (Main Title)” has been re-sequenced to open the album in order to offer a more comprehensive release of this amazing score.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Maestro Claude Bolling, who passed away at the end of 2020.
