After he moves with his parents from the American city of San Diego to a small Scottish village, nine-year-old Tony is constantly tormented by nightmares about vampires – indeed he ends up actually encountering these creatures of the night. A close friendship develops between Tony and the little vampire Rudolph together with his vampire sister Anna – but in the dark shadows also lurks the vampire hunter Rookery, whose only goal is to destroy the undead once and for all…
This film from the year 2000 was critically acclaimed. The score was written by Nigel Clarke & Michael Csányi-Wills (The Littel Polar Bear), who together fully exploited the large-scale orchestra they had at their disposal, the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra, to create, amongst many others, an evocative theme for the friendship between Tony and Rudolph, dark and exhilarating music for the confrontations with Rookery and haunting melodies matching the beautiful Scottish landscapes.
A soundtrack CD was released at the time of the film, but it is now out of print. We at Alhambra Records are delighted to re-release this soundtrack and have added two exclusive bonus tracks in which Nigel Clarke and Michael Csányi-Wills talk about their memories and their experiences of working on this score. The running time of the CD is about 61 minutes, and the album contains a 16-page CD booklet including a text by the composers. We hope you enjoy The Little Vampire album.
