One Night in Turin (Stuart Hancock)

Original score from the 2010 documentary sport feature film directed by James Erskine, starring Gary Oldman, Rebecca Marie Burnett and Paul Gascoigne.

THE STORY: Before the Premier League and multi-million pound salaries, in England ‘football’ was a dirty word. The game was in disgrace, the fans, hooligans, the nation, it seemed, were all played out. Then there was Italia ’90 – The World Cup – a shot at redemption.

THE SCORE: The main bulk of Stuart Hancock’s epic orchestral score for the film depicts the drama of the classic semi-final between England and West Germany. Ingeniously, Hancock makes use of Puccini’s famous ‘Nessun Dorma’ aria from Turandot, sung with amazing spirit by “the operatic voice of sport,” tenor Sean Ruane. Our release of the score, which runs just under 20 minutes, is a special project for us. Normally, we do not release scores that are this short in duration, but in this case we just had to. Hancock’s music is absolutely brilliant, the new recording of ‘Nessun Dorma’ breathtaking and the performance by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra extraordinary.

THE COMPOSER: Stuart Hancock studied at Downing College Cambridge, and the London College of Music, graduating in 1998 with a distinction from the Masters course in Composing for Film and Television. This led to a full-time studio composer role with Soho-based music production company Mcasso, where Stuart excelled in commercial music composition and production. He went freelance in 2005 and has since built and maintained a varied career as a composer, arranger and conductor across all media. Stuart’s first soundtrack releases – for the independent action movies Underground and Bodyguard: A New Beginning – came via MovieScore Media in 2009 to rapturous reviews. His other subsequent credits include Atlantis, Crazyhead and a number of concert works, including Raptures for orchestra and a violin concerto.
