About

What a joy it is to present an Encore Edition of Alan Price’s elegant and charming score for The Whales of August.  Originally released in 1987, the CD has been out of print for nearly three decades. Alan Price is an English musician, best known as the original keyboardist for the British band the Animals and for his subsequent solo work.  His score for The Whales of August is one of the loveliest chamber orchestra scores of the period.

Two of the greatest motion picture actresses of all time Bette Davis and Lillian Gishunite display their legendary talents in this beautifully photographed, intensely emotional drama that offers unexpected and quite marvelous rewards (The New York Times)! Libby (Davis) and Sarah (Gish) are widowed siblings who have vacationed for half a century at a seaside cottage in Maine. Now in their eighties, the sisters have unexpectedly arrived at an impasse: While Sarah embraces change and the possibility of romance with a courtly Russian suitor (Vincent Price), the stubbornly bitter Libby rages at the inevitability of death. As the summer months wane, can Libby and Sarah rediscover the powerful bonds of memory, family and love?
