How about ROMANCE OF A HORSE THIEF by Mort Schuman? I am not sure however where he was born.

It's been figured out already.

What is the Spoliansky score like? I've just looked up my database (unfortunately, fairly incomplete and omitting many treasures I have in my collection), and ended up with merely five songs (of which some are double). So, I have no idea what to expect...

Still can't believe, that I don't have more Spoliansky in my collection. There must be many songs of his in my collection that I haven't entered to my database.

It's wonderfully melodic - great opening theme. Orchestral, one great organ track - I'm really fond of the film, love the much maligned Jean Seberg in it, and adore the score.

Spoliansky's SAINT JOAN is indeed a brilliant, very underrated score - probably even his best one - and I am glad that it will soon be released on a Kritzerland CD.
Have the old Capitol album masters of this score survived and could be used? I really hope so!

The answer, happily, is yes.

I hope Mischa Spoliansky gets some more fans. Anyone who can begin their career with King Solomon's Mines, The Man Who Could Work Miracles and The Ghost Goes West and end it with Hitler: The Last Ten Days, The Best House in London and The Battle of the Villa Fiorita needs some attention!

One can hope that those not familiar with this absolutely marvelous composer will take a chance on Saint Joan - it's really top-notch. Chandos did a Spoliansky compilation - I can't remember if it's to my liking or not, although the music is fantastic.

And speaking of fantastic, heavenly, brilliant, amazing - I just finished doing an editing road map for the project that follows Saint Joan - one of my top ten favorite scores ever and what a treat to be able to do this CD of it. No guessing just yet, but it's going to make a lot of people very happy, none more so than me.

Just one question. Is it a film score or a stage score?

The Chandos Spoliansky disc did unfortunately have only the Toccatina for solo organ from SAINT JOAN on it which I myself found rather disappointing. They did not even touch upon the orchestral parts of the score at all - rather strange. So neither the Main Title with the haunting main theme for pan flute and orchestra nor the battle sequences or the enchanting Dream Minuet can be found on this CD.

It's a film score to Otto Preminger's film of Saint Joan starring Jean Seberg, Richard Widmark, John Gielgud, Anton Walbrook and many other terrific actors. The screenplay is by Graham Greene.

When I asked if it was a film score or a stage score I was referring to your project after Saint Joan.

Oh, sorry - there will be a cast album reissue either the same week as our next announcement (referenced in this thread) or a week later. But the score I'm speaking of that follows that (roughly in three or four weeks) is a film score - and, I have to say, in my top ten of all-time personal favorites. And that's all I'm saying for now smile

Thanks for the clarification.

I've been really intrigued by this since you mentioned it to me last week. I'm clueless, but whatever it is, I think I want 10 of 'em. smile

Romantic Comedy arrived yesterday. A delightful Hamlisch score. Thanks for another fine release.

Oh, for me it's as big as it gets. For others, who knows? It will be a two CD set.

And yes, more Elmer coming, down the line a bit.

Oh, and for anyone who is interested in these sorts of things, the London cast album of Promises, Promises has sold out.
