Pomp and Circumstance March - No 4 - Sir Edward Elgar - Electronic Organ - A Clockwork Orange


Pomp and Circumstance March - No 4 - Opus 39 -Composed Sir Edward Elgar during June 1907 and first performed in London on 24th August 1907. The march is used to great effect as part of the classically motivated soundtrack to "A Clockwork Orange" that was orchestrated by the brilliant composer & arranger - Wendy Carlos. The march is performed in this recording by transgendered musician Denise Hewitt on a Technics PR903 Digital Keyboard using a combination of synthesised church pipe organs modes. The photo in the opening titles and closing credits was shot by Denise in Le Massif de la Vanoise (French Alps)and is of the North Face of La Grande Casse - 3855metres - which is the highest peak in the National Park. In "A Clockwork Orange", Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March - No4 - is used when Alex is transferred from Parkmoor Prison to the care of Dr Brodsky at the Ludovico Medical Facility. The music plays for 2.5mins throughout the scene at the Ludovico Centre Reception Desk from 01:07:28 to 01:09:55 when the march fades out and the scene moves to Alex's Day Room where Dr Brodsky's Assistant, Dr Branom enters with a nurse to initiate the course of medical treatment...

Chief Guard (Shouting like RSM): Right. Halt the prisoner. Good morning, sir. I am Chief Officer Barnes. I've got 655321 on a transfer from Parkmoor to the Ludovico Center, sir. Doctor: Good morning, we've been expecting you. I'm Dr Alcott. Chief Guard (Checks name on clipboard): Yes, Dr Alcott. Are you prepared to accept the prisoner, sir? Doctor: Yes of course......
