A Clockwork Orange - Extended Theme & Title Music
  • Classical music composed by Henry Purcell Originally written more than 315 years ago by the great English composer Henry Purcell (1659 - 1695) for the Funeral March of Queen Mary II (Died 28th December 1694) - This 17th Century Classic Processional Funeral March was originally scored for 4 trumpets, and then adapted for the Main Opening Title Theme Music of the 1971 film "A Clockwork Orange" which was directed by Stanley Kubrick. The electronic synthesized soundtrack was orchestrated by Wendy Carlos, together with Rachel Elkind, including adaptations of several other extremely well known classical music compositions including several parts of Beethoven's Chorale 9th Symphony. The full soundtrack also includes excerpts from the William Tell Overture, the Thieving Magpie, Land of Hope and Glory, and the well-known 1st and 4th Pomp and Circumstance Marches composed by Sir Edward Elgar. Wendy Carlos has been one of my musical inspirations and role models since my teenage years with her revolutionary & futuristic Moog Synthesizer adaptations that include "Switched-on-Bach" from way back in 1968, and of course the highly creative soundtrack for "A Clockwork Orange".
