We are proud to present to you a highly dramatic album featuring two large orchestral epic scores from British composer Daniel Pemberton, composed for BBC’s adventure series Heroes and Villains (known as Warriors in the US and released on DVD there in April).

Pemberton, a remarkable talent who has written a lot of strikingly original music for UK television (including Prehistoric Park, Hiroshima, The Haunted Airman, Peep Show, High Spirits With Shirley Ghostman), wrote the music for the two first episodes of the series, focusing on Attila the Hun and Napoleon.

This album features both scores, beautifully performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Attila is a symphonic adrenaline fest with its epic action music and ethnic colorings, while Napoleon impresses with its Beethoven-influenced classical sound. BBC originally aired this series in 2007 – here is your chance to relive the excitement of the show!
