Tim: “It’s now fifteen years since Matthew Warchus and Dennis Kelly asked me to help them create Matilda The Musical, and I never dreamed that the songs would still be finding new life now. Matilda The Musical has now been performed all over the world, in different accents, different languages, and by performers of all stripes; each of them bringing to the tale their own style, their own experiences, their own passion. This album is another — very, very exciting — chapter in the Matilda story.”

Christopher Nightingale: “The range and breadth of musical opportunity that this classic story offers up is a gift for any composer. The diversity of the songs is gloriously far-reaching, and my first job in writing the original score was to try and build a framework that might bind things together; find, create and extend common ground. I am incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to write a score that has had such intrinsic value in a movie. Matthew Warchus is innately musical himself, and it’s excellent to work with someone who values and understands the role music plays in a story like this.”

Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is directed by Matthew Warchus and with a screenplay by Dennis Kelly.
