A treat for all UK Rozsa fans.
April 2nd the Talking Pictures channel will be showing one of Rozsa's early film scores 'The Night of the Fire' at 7pm.
An interesting score if a little over the top.

Enjoy.

Quite a good film that deserves to be better known. It was essentially buried upon the outbreak of WWII and only rediscovered decades later. More here: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/miklosrozsa/viewtopic.php?p=664#p664

Probably the most famous from this period. I have the superb rerecording coupled with THIEF OF BAGHDAD, but alas, the CD is very old (at least 35 years old) and has started skipping. This especially affects the JUNGLE part of the album; THIEF is more or less intact.

Last evening, I re-watched the 2003 BBC4 broadcast Great Composers - The Golden Age re: Miklós Rózsa, presented by Leonard Slatkin.

The programme covered the composer's early life (some old camera footage) and included numerous on-screen contributions from John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith*, pianist Leonard Pennario - each of whom worked with Rózsa - and others, such as Jon Burlingame.

Greatly enjoyable, I especially liked hearing references to names I now know from the 1950s' era: Sinatra, Riddle, Cole, Garland, Slatkin's parents: Felix and Eleanor, et al. There was discussion of Rózsa's use of the Theremin, the implication being that this was its first use in Spellbound (1945). Given it was mentioned that Rózsa worked with Arthur Honegger in the decade prior, I do wonder if he knew of that composer's score for Demon of the Himalayas (1935) which included the instrument (Edit: oops! that was the Ondes Martenot. However Dmitri Shostakovich had used the Theremin in Odna (Alone) in 1931 though it was unlikely this had had much exposure in years hence).

The programme included a performance of the Spellbound Concerto performed by Leonard Slatkin conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra, with pianist Simon Mulligan, accompanied by Celia Sheen playing the Theremin - wonderful! smile
