I am truly enjoying the CLEOPATRA CD. It's got a little bit of everything... action cues that are heavy on the brass, some soft exotic dances, some fine cues of mystery and suspense, some sensuous music for Cleopatra, a theme that is quite similar to Ronald Stein's THE HAUNTED PALACE, and even a few fleeting lighter moments and bits of comedy. There's a great mysterious bit for strings and fluttering flutes that opens several of the cuts (like 8, 13 and 17) that sounds like it's right out of an old OUTER LIMITS episode. As Last Child mentioned above, it gets a bit repetitive, but there is enough variety overall to make this CD a very pleasing listening experience.

The only other work I had known by Renzo Rssellini prior to this was the 45 EP of three cuts from VIAGGIO IN ITALIA (A TRIP TO ITALY) that was released on Mercury Records in France and the US (I would presume it came out in Italy too).

Great new and fantastic edition. One question only. I have seen the tracklist but wanted to know the total time.
The Legions of the Nile exceeded 70 minutes. I like Renzo Rossellini. Hopefully publish more soundtracks.

The only other work I had known by Renzo Rssellini prior to this was the 45 EP of three cuts from VIAGGIO IN ITALIA (A TRIP TO ITALY) that was released on Mercury Records in France and the US (I would presume it came out in Italy too).

Probably you won't know it, but similar as with Korngold, Rota or Herrmann, who also wrote quite a lot of concert music besides their film scores, there exists also some cross-referencing between Rossellini's concert works and his film scores. The music for the orchestral track "A Song of Pompei" on side A of the VIAGGIO IN ITALIA EP (in the film this music underscores the wanderings of the couple played by Bergman and Sanders around Pompei and their separation) for example does also crop up in his ballet suite "Songs From the Bay of Naples" in a very similar vein. The arrangement may be just a bit different there, but it is almost the same music. This ballet was written in 1954, so almost at the same time the film was released.
Efrem Kurtz recorded this ballet suite by Rossellini with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra and it was released on an US LP probably around 1956 besides works by other composers. It is still available for example here:

Is true, Jim.
The music of "Cleopatra" is very diverse and very nice.
As you say, "There is enough variety to make esta overall very pleasing CD listening experience".

Stefan: I just wanted you to know that I picked up that Columbia LP you mentioned. It's great. It has the same feel as his film music; a delightful LP. Thanks for mentioning it. I never would have known about it otherwise.

Thanks for your nice feedback, Jim.
I would also highly recommend you Rossellini's symphonic poem PAGINE ROMANE which was released on an Italian Campi [Campi was a sub-label of CAM] LP (CLP 100-001) around 1965:
http://www.discogs.com/Renzo-Rossellini-Pagine-Romane/release/6240133

This fine recording was conducted by Pier Luigi Urbini and played by the Orchestra e coro del Teatro "La Fenice" di Venezia.
This is really a large-scale symphonic poem in three movements which was written by Rossellini between 1937 and 1946. The individual movements musically describe various districts of Rome. Particularly the last movement named "Roma Cristiana" with its "Alleluja" should normally be a favourite among film music collectors because with its magnificent choral splendour it comes stylistically very near to Rózsa's biblical scores such as BEN HUR or KING OF KINGS which however were composed much later than Rossellini's work.
I would say: Keep an eye out for this now quite rare LP because it is really worthwhile and one of the best and most famous symphonic works composed by Rossellini with all the typical characteristics of his musical style on hand.
