Zardoz's piece is certainly by an Italian composer, and i feel sure i have it in my collection, but i cant remember what it is.

Am very interested to know what Haineshisway's piece from 23 June is as I really like it. Cant put my finger on nationality

Sounds to me like Michel Legrand.
A couple of passages sounded similar to castle keep and thomas crown.


Not Legrand. One of the things I love about doing this is you can see how much of film music colors comes from classical works. This one is a classical work and the composer is not American nor French. It was a choice between this piece and one other that was very film music-like.

Is it a classical composer who also did/does film work? Feels like perhaps Gerard Schurmann to me?

EDIT: dunno why I'm throwing guesses around - I'm not nearly knowledgeable to have a hope in hell ... but it feels nice to join in and pretend I have a rounded musical awareness! :-P

This composer did write for film, but I believe his output was all for documentaries. But he wasn't known for that.

Could it be Alexander Mosolov?


Don't even know who that is. It's actually a composer with a singular popular piece of music who is also has in name in an EXTREMELY popular piece of music. But he wrote a lot of great other music too.

Yes, an Italian composer ... think about one of the 'older' Italians (as BillCarson would phrase it. smile )

That the recording is in stereo should limit the candidates. There isn't a surfeit of stereo Italian soundtracks from the early 1960s.

Not either of the Carlos.
Not A.F. Lavagnino, either.

But - yes - it's from one of the volumes of peplum soundtracks.

Rodion Shchedrin?

A bit more traditional than Schedrin, who I enjoy very much. Our composer did a series of documentaries for CBS.

Hhmmm ... doesn't seem likely that a Soviet composer would provide music for American television documentaries ... so I'll go out on a limb here and hazard a guess on Igor Stravinsky.

Specifically the final movement of Niagra Falls Suite. Grofe wrote quite a bunch of suites being Grand Canyon....sadly a lot of them either old LP only or never recorded. But there's six available over two great Naxos CDs conducted by none other than William Stromberg.
