A Clockwork Orange (2000) Retail CD
This music, like Stanley Kubrick's controversial film and the book by Anthony Burgess on which it was based, has a strange timelessness, seeming to exist in an immediate future that never quite arrives yet has always been with us. Music is central to the whole concept of the story, in that the violent impulses of the delinquent Alex are inseparably bound up with the emotional force of the music he loves, notably Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. At the same time, Alex's debased moral values are reflected in the debased aesthetic values of the world he lives in. All this is manifest in the music featuredmore… in the film, which mixes bona fide classical excerpts with perverse, fizzy electronic versions and original pieces. These are mainly by the pre-Wendy Walter Carlos, doyen(ne) of the classical synthesiser whose Switched-On Bach defined the genre, and are spookily jarring in their effectiveness. Scariest of all, perhaps, is Gene Kelly's classic rendition of "Singin' in the Rain" that provides a rhythmic accompaniment to one of Alex's assaults. If you've experienced the film, or the book or intend to do either, you'll want this disc.--Roger Thomas
