Why in the world did you post this? How is that specifically related to That Hamilton Woman?

Had it not appeared on Hollywood '95, I doubt I'd ever have heard of it as it doesn't seem to crop up on Rozsa compilations much either.

Joel McNeely was hardly the first to record the Love Theme. Rozsa himself recorded it back in the late 1970s:



Morton Gould was the first to record it digitally:

And Jerry Goldsmith conducted the theme on some concert album. It's certainly beautiful music, but I think LYDIA is the far richer score from Rozsa's early Hollywood years.

I'm not sure why the Rozsa Forum was cited earlier. It may have to do with this thread, wherein I described Churchill insisting on screening the film aboard H.M.S. Prince of Wales during the Atlantic Charter conference with Roosevelt.

I've never heard of this! Any idea what album this was? It doesn't show up on the Soundtrack Collector listing for this film/score.

I think he's talking about a b00t: "A Celebration of Hollywood 1994", a double CD-R (Vol.2 of the series "The JG Live Collection"...) from a concert Jerry gave in Nottingham on Jan. 15 with the BBC Concert Orchestra - it includes the Minuet from "That Hamilton Woman"!

Yes it's Rozsa's Minuet from Lady Hamilton. Goldsmith introduces the piece at the 7:51 mark:

Does anybody know, if Rozsa's Minuet from That Hamilton Woman was ever recorded/ performed other than at this concert? I've been looking for this FOR AGES and couldn't find any answers....

It relates to Rozsa. The Rozsa website includes a comprehensive discography, and it's possible someone reading this thread isn't aware of it or the Rozsa forum. Sorry, I suppose I should have posted something about Goldsmith instead.

Click on the YouTube video above, and then hit the YouTube logo at the bottom right. That will take you to the actual YouTube video.

Then copy the url address into the following link in a separate tab

https://ytmp3free.cc/en/

You can download Part 1 of the concert. The original video will lead you to a link to Part 2 of the concert, and repeat the above.

You will have the entire concert in the downloads file on your computer.

TerraEpon, take a chill pill. Waxmanman35 was only trying to help.

The "Love Theme" is Rozsa at his best. Morton Gould conducting the LSO is a knockout, and Rozsa's own performance is of course wonderful. I also recommend Gregg Nestor's version for guitar:



and McNeely's with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra:

Dick, If the solution suggested by George above is unsuitable, and if you would prefer to have physical CDRs of the concert let me know. I had the broadcast committed to CDRs years ago (2 discs, due to the length of the performance.)

I haven't seen the film or heard the score, but I came across this, and found it interesting:

In a 22 October 1970 column in The Village Voice, critic Andrew Sarris wrote: "I have seen THAT HAMILTON WOMAN some 83 times at last count, and that doesn't include free television viewings. That is to say that on 83 separate occasions I plunked down coin of the realm for the privilege of watching Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier impersonate Lady Hamilton and Lord Nelson in history, Emma and Horatio biographically, and Viv and Larry iconographically. By any reasonably objective standard of aesthetic worth, this admission should come under the heading of Confessions of a Misspent Youth. The first question that suggests itself is why, the second how."
