American composer Laurence Rosenthal is one of the giants of film, television and theatre music. His career in film and television composition, which began in the 1950s, spans no less than six decades and has resulted in numerous accolades and awards, including two Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations, seven Emmy Awards (with an additional six nominations) and the World Soundtrack Lifetime Achievement Award in 2023. Highly regarded among film music critics and composers alike, Laurence Rosenthal is an immensely talented and versatile composer, who has enhanced films and television series time and again with superbly crafted scores.

For this historic album, the first rerecording entirely devoted to Laurence Rosenthal’s oeuvre, most of the suites have been newly created, based on the original manuscripts in the composer’s archive. Highlights include substantial suites from Arthur Penn’s The Miracle Worker, the Oscar-nominated score for Becket, the composer’s epic western score for The Return of a Man Called Horse, the Saturn Award-nominated score for Clash of the Titans, the miniseries Mussolini: The Untold Story and George Lucas’s The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

Released by Silva Screen Records during the 50th anniversary edition of Film Fest Gent in October 2023, the album Laurence Rosenthal: Music for Film and Television is the 18th title in Film Fest Gent’s continuing series of annual film music albums, containing new studio recordings with Brussels Philharmonic and Dirk Brossé that give some of the world’s greatest scores an extended afterlife beyond the films. Previous recordings feature the work of Craig Armstrong, Angelo Badalamenti, Marco Beltrami, Terence Blanchard, Carter Burwell, Mychael Danna, Cliff Martinez, Mark Isham, Alan Silvestri, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Shigeru Umebayashi and Gabriel Yared.

The tracklisting looks superb. Really great selection from Rosenthal's incredible career. The Mussolini score is a real hidden gem in his catalog.

And the Fantasy Island theme! I would be sold on that alone.
