Miklós Rózsa's The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes
16-Apr-2021 -

Quartet Records and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer present the remastered reissue of the wonderful, memorable music composed by Miklós Rózsa for Billy Wilder´s classic The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes, this time in a 2-CD set with extra material. For the music, Wilder asked Miklós Rózsa to adapt his Violin Concerto, Op. 24, for the film. Rózsa obliged, augmenting the concert work with a number of evocative new themes for the picture. On the second disc is included the premiere CD edition of the famous “Fantasy” that Rózsa recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for his album “Rózsa Conducts Rózsa. Also included is a new remastering of the premiere recording of the violin concerto on which so much of the score is based, performed by the inimitable Jascha Heifetz. Finally, all the source music recorded and supervised by Rózsa himself is also included on the second CD. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.
