A beautiful later score from the legendary Miklos Rosza – a masterpiece that draws on all of his many years in film, yet serves things up with a more subtle approach than before! There's a sense of space here that we don't always hear in Rosza – almost a pausing between the notes, creating a sense of reflection that really expands the gentle sentiment of the tunes – while still building to a bit of drama at a few key moments. Nothing here is overdone at all – and the soundtrack is a great reminder that in the serious film score world, away from the hits, the mid 70s could be a very golden period! Titles include "Providence", "Sonia Et Le Saint Suaire", "Feuillages", "Poursuite", and "Valse Crepusculaire". CD
This guy's neither the Sabu who played congas on Blue Note, nor the long-haired hard rocker from later years – but Selar Shaik Sabu, an early Indian film star heard here on a dramatic recording from the 40s! The core part of the CD features a young Sabu reading selections from Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book with backings composed by MiklosRozsa – sort of a pre-Disney version of the material, set to a relatively serious score. The remainder of the CD doesn't feature Sabu – but includes a reading of The Thief Of Bagdad by Hugh Gray, with backings again by Rozsa – and the score to Black Narcissus, composed and conducted by Brian Easdale.
