From David Amado:
Three masterpieces: each of which speaks to, or listens to, Hollywood. Respighi’s glittering Fountains of Rome is cinematic in its sweep, drama, and jaw-dropping technicolor orchestration; Rachmaninoff’s ripe romanticism of his final symphony, though written in Switzerland, speaks the lush language of Hollywood’s golden age. Rozsa’s (El Cid, Ben-Hur) Cello Concerto (featuring brilliant young cellist Nick Canellakis) is concert music written by a silver screen master.
