MIKLOS ROZSA: Spellbound – The Classic Film Score Of Miklós Rózsa – The National Philharmonic Orch. / Charles Gerhardt – HDTT
The Spellbound score is made even more gripping thru Rozsa’s use of the theremin.
KALVEVI AHO: Concerto for Theremin & Chamber Orch., “Eight Seasons”; Concerto for Horn & Chamber Orch. – Carolina Eyck, theremin/ Annu Salminen, horn/ Lapland Ch. Orch./ John Storgards – BIS
There are few theremin concertos, so this SACD is of top interest to fans of the no-touching electronic instrument.
“Spellbound” = Works by PAUL OSTERFIELD, RONALD KEITH PARKS, TIMOTHY LEE MILLER, MICHAEL MURRAY, MARK ELIOT JACOBS – Navona
All this music is designed to let an orchestra and conductor show off a bit. An enjoyable program.
A successful Blu-ray reissue of one of Hitchcock’s most interesting films.
