Notes & Reviews:

Miklos Rozsa is one of the giants of the film world with scores for Hollywood films such as 'Ben Hur', 'Quo Vadis', and 'El Cid'. Once settled in Hollywood, Rozsa was able to negotiate a beneficial contract which allowed him to spend the summer months at his Italian retreat writing his concert music, while during the winter months composing music for films in Hollywood. The conductor Rumon Gamba comments, "Having made many discs of film music by composers whose concert works are well known, such as Malcolm Arnold and Vaughan Williams, I thought it would be interesting to turn to a very well-known film music composer and profile his concert works, which have perhaps been overshadowed by his big screen successes".

Gramophone Magazine
Rózsa's Hungarian roots... were ... expressed... in the Overture to a Symphony Concert... a bright and positive score which would grace any concert programme. Most impressive of all is the Tripartitia (1971, rev 1972), its constituent Intrada, Intermezzo and rather Waltonian Finale showing Rózsa developing in a new direction late in his career. Excellent performances and superlative sound...
