LPO The Genius of Film Music
Providing the music scores for films has always loomed large throughout the illustrious history of the LPO. In fact, the LPO’s very first venture can be traced back to the 1930s. With this new release, the LPO joins forces with another film music veteran, conductor and musicologist, John Mauceri. Mauceri has very effectively assembled cohesive extended suites from Cleopatra (North), The Godfather (Rota), Psycho (Herrmann) and Mutiny on the Bounty (Kaper). Maestro Mauceri’s accompanying essay is mandatory reading for anyone who values this repertoire.
