Music by Various Artists
EMI 268 7702 (UK)
25 Tracks

Director Nicolas Winding's film, released in UK cinemas on 13th March, details the events leading to the imprisonment of Charles Bronson, Britain's most notoriously violent criminal, who has been behind bars for 34 years, 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement.
The soundtrack album draws on the classical and operatic repertoire, both familiar and less so, with works by the likes of Verdi, Wagner, Strauss, Delibes and Puccini. But the album, due out on 9th March, also features such diverse tracks as Eric Coates' famous "Dambusters March," as well as numbers by Pet Shop Boys, New Order and The Walker Brothers.
I have no running time, I'm afraid, as I was only sent a 15-track sampler, though the publicity lists 25.
