BBC Philharmonic Performs Angelo Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks & Blue Velvet

A few weeks ago, BBC Radio 3 aired a live concert from the BBC Philharmonic playing “music from your favourite films,” which included (how did they know?) three songs composed by Angelo Badalamenti. The show itself is not available any longer, but I did record their classical versions of the Theme from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Blue Velvet’s haunting Main Theme and Mysteries of Love (sans Julee Cruise on vocals, obviously).

The voice you hear in these audio clips is that of presenter Mark Kermode, and the British radio’s symphony orchestra was conducted by Robert Ziegler.
