Notes & Reviews:

Chandos Movies, conducted by Rumon Gamba has the deserved reputation as a label preserving under-recorded film music from the halcyon days of British cinema. In this latest instalment, Chandos Movies welcomes the film music of Mischa Spoliansky. Having fled Russia after the Revolution Mischa Spoliansky found himself in Weimar Berlin where he enjoyed a reputation in the booming theatrical and cabaret life. Here he worked with notable people such as Max Reinhardt and Marlene Dietrich and was seen as a more upbeat version of Kurt Weill. In 1933 Spoliansky left his adopted Germany after Hitler’s rise to power and emigrated to London where he began a second career as a film composer. He was commissioned by film-maker Alexander Korda of London Films to writer the scores for Sander of the River (1935), which won the prize for Best Music at the Venice Film Festival, and The Ghost Goes West (1935). He went on to score over 50 movies in his 40 years as a composer in England.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Ileana Ruhemann (flute); Roderick Elms (piano); John Elijah Wright (organ).
