Notes & Reviews:

Best known for his film music, (A Double Life, Ben Hur, Spellbound) many fans are surprised to learn that Miklós Rózsa wrote many pieces for concert halls, including some notable concertos. With the help of four exclusive Chandos artists (The BBC Philharmonic, Rumon Gamba, Paul Watkins and Jennifer Pike) Chandos presents Volume 2 in a series of orchestral music by Miklós Rózsa.

"The sheer exuberance and command of orchestral colour channelled into these readings by Rumon Gamba moves this disc into its own sui generis category -- and like its predecessor, this second volume is a delight. The days when the composer’s long association with Hollywood ensured that Rósza’s concert works were looked askance should be firmly put to rest by this exhilarating issue." -London24.com
