High quality stuff. I've been impressed with the music in each episode of this series, which just finished last night (on a cliffhanger, of course).

Unusually, Mrs TG didn't notice the music. She did however come over all unnecessary every time Aidan Turner was on screen. I mean, apart from the dark good looks, youth, gym-monkey body, full head of hair and huge earning potential, what's he got that I haven't?

I'm still waiting for the programme to air here -- can you tell us any more about the music?

Whilst Anne Dudley’s score is fine and suits the piece very well, each week, as the title credits roll, i’ve had Miklos Rozsa’s glorious Main Title for “Moonfleet” going through my head.

It conjours up the waves crashing onto the Cornish coast perfectly.

By the way, this new version of “Poldark” has been really excellent.

I was never a big fan of the original 70’s production, so approached this new one with caution. I needn’t have worried. It had me hooked by the end of Part:1 and i’ve been gripped throughout.

A splendid cast and great production values make it a winner all the way. Don’t miss it, when it comes your way.

We now have to wait months for the second series. Arrgghhhhh!

My review of POLDARK, for anyone who's interested:

I certainly agree with your last paragraph, Jon:

"If there’s one criticism to give to the score for Poldark it’s that, without the context of the show to give it some framework, some listeners may find it to be a little anonymous. The main theme is not present enough in the body of the score to be really memorable, while the violin textures – although undeniably lovely – are just that: textures, absent of any standout element beyond the excellence of the actual performance. The secondary themes are certainly present, but it takes some digging and some familiarity with the story arc to pick them out, while the brief allusions to Cornish folk music are nice, but don’t really develop far enough down that road for those who want a strong representation of the traditional music of the setting. With these caveats in mind, I still give Poldark a recommendation to those who enjoy scores that revel in wild and turbulent romance, and because I’m personally pleased to see Anne Dudley receiving some international press after several years away."

It is indeed odd to delay the main title theme until track 6. Does anyone have any idea what the series-chronological order of the tracks are?

Also, Demelza's other song, "I'd Pluck A Fair Rose," heard in the fourth episode, is conspicuously absent.

Still, it's good once again to hear fine television scoring from Anne Dudley (and, I would add, Debbie Wiseman ["Wolf Hall"]).

All this talk about her score to the new adaptation keeps reminding me that will still don't have a release of the wonderful orchestral score to the 1996 film, by the late Ian Hughes.

The version of this score to pick up is the limited edition 'De Luxe' release which opens with an exquisite piano composition, a classical Prelude based on the main theme with Lang Lang:
