Programme Note


Pomp and circumstance from the age of the Roman empire— Rozsa captures the essence of chariots, triumphal processions, and intendant battles with this music from the great 1959 film by William Wyler. Available seperately from the film are: "Love Theme," "Prelude," and "Rowing of the Galley Slaves," all for orchestra. And keep in mind the 20-minute suite for orchestra from the film "Quo Vadis."
