From the forthcoming album to be released this autumn
‘ISOLATION SYMPHONY’ an original work created by international renowned composer & producer David Courtney comprising of three original, unique contemporary pieces of music each of which reflect the experience from ‘Lockdown’ to eventual Liberty’, stitched together to create something quite unusual but highly commercial.
Like many of us, music legend David Courtney has been self-isolating during lockdown, but rather than worry and fret he has used the situation as the inspiration for one of his most brilliant and adventurous compositions to date. ISOLATION SYMPHONY comprises three original, unique contemporary pieces of music, stitched together to create something quite unusual but highly commercial.
The symphony was specifically created as a fund raising project for the NHS frontline staff, volunteers and patients and all proceeds will go to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal.
David Courtney is one of rock music’s unsung heroes. He has worked alongside some of the biggest stars in the business including Roger Daltrey, David Gilmour, Paul McCartney and many, many more.
“The ‘Daltrey’ album co-written and produced by David Courtney is one of my favourites and one of the great, probably unappreciated albums ever.”
– SIR ALAN PARKER CBE
“Everybody thinks that Adam Faith discovered me, but it was David Courtney” – LEO SAYER
Harry Nilsson once described David Courtney as the English Phil Spector.
During his career David has acquired numerous entrees in various ‘Rock Music Encyclopaedias.’ Platinum, Gold and Silver Disc Awards representing the millions of records sold worldwide, ASCAP awards and a Grammy nomination. In 2017 he was the first and only British composer to receive the prestigious Tsarskoselskaya Art Award in St Petersburg, Russia.
Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together, said: “This is a really fantastic project and we would encourage everyone to listen and download Isolation Symphony. The proceeds will make a huge difference to NHS staff, volunteers and patients.”
More recently David has founded the Walk of Fame cultural attractions in the UK which follow in the tradition of its famous Hollywood predecessor. The first UK Walk of Fame was established and launched in Brighton with 100 names in 2002 followed in 2010 with the Bristol Walk of Fame. 2016 witnessed the first Football Walk of Fame, a joint venture with The National Football Museum and legendary sports artist Paul Trevillion. In 2010, The Music Walk of Fame in Camden, London was launched under license as a living, breathing cultural movement to recognise the contribution of global music icons and next year will see the introduction of the world’s first Bollywood Walk of Fame.
David is currently putting the finishing touches to his autobiography which will be published later this year.
“I am dedicating this music to the memory of my long-time friend Adam Faith who would have turned 80 years old this June. Adam was eternally grateful to the NHS for saving his life following an horrific car crash in 1974.” – David Courtney
