Description

Ben Bartlett - Vera (Original Television Soundtrack)

Award winning composer Ben Bartlett’s poignant score to top-rating ITV drama based on the bestselling
books by Ann Cleeves (Shetland, Inspector Ramsay) and starring Brenda Blethyn.
BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning actress Brenda Blethyn stars as the eccentric but brilliant DCI Vera
Stanhope. Unconventional and unglamorous, Vera faces the world with her caustic wit, guile and
courage and what she lacks in charm she makes up for in wisdom and insight.
Ben Bartlett’s soundtrack perfectly complements the atmospheric Northumberland landscapes that the
series is set in. Vera’s music theme started from a very simple idea of four chords, originally used to
score the heartrending opening scene of the very first episode. The sweeping melody enveloping these
four chords became more prominent as the music developed, and has gradually formed into the
instantly recognizable, haunting and elegant theme of the series.
The score for Vera is full of musical miniatures that have become part of the fabric of the show, and
some of the dramatic highlights have been selected for the album here. On this album, and in the score,
the piano is played by Ben Bartlett.
Ben Bartlett is a London based TV and concert composer known for his prolific music output for drama,
comedy and documentaries. Recently, Ben’s music was featured in SKY 1 hit series Stan Lee’s Lucky Man,
ITV’s The Loch, Sky Atlantic’s critically acclaimed The Tunnel. For his score for Walking with Dinosaurs
Ben won a BAFTA in 2000 and was nominated for Primetime Emmy. He was also nominated for RTS (The
Ghost Squad, The Mark of Cain, Mutual Friends) and Ivor Novello Awards (Fiona’s Story). Ben also writes
for concert hall and theatre. He received critical acclaim for his mini-opera El Tigre, based on a poem
