Among all composer-centred albums that have been produced at Film Fest Gent over the past twenty years, this new recording of music by Laurence Rosenthal, ‘Laurence Rosenthal: Music For Film And Television’ is certainly unique in the festival’s history, in that it celebrates a composer who was already writing classic film scores during an era that has become known as the silver age of film music. While the oldest music on previous albums dates back to the early 1980s, some of the scores presented here were composed in the early 1960s – a full decade earlier than the first edition of Film Fest Gent itself, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary.

This felicitous release features all-new studio recordings of selected scores by this American composer, one of the giants of film, television and theatre music, who has been on the festival’s music programming wish list for years. Laurence Rosenthal’s career in film and television composition, which began in the 1950s, spans no less than six decades. To one generation of filmgoers the composer is known for his scores to acclaimed 1960s films such as ‘The Miracle Worker ‘and ‘Becket’, to another generation for his scores to late 1970s/early 1980s genre films such as ‘The Island of Dr Moreau’ and ‘Clash of the Titans’, to television viewers of the 1980s for his scores to a variety of miniseries such as ‘Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna’ and ‘The Bourne Identity,’ and finally to both old and new generations for his theme and scores for ‘The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles’.

“To have maestro Dirk Brosse and the Brussels Philharmonic now bringing new life to these selected scores is a very special privilege for me, for which I am so thankful” LAURENCE ROSENTHAL
