Still, it made a classic score available once again to an eager audience. While still far from complete, this now made an expanded release possible, bringing the album running time up to 47 minutes. This second PEG reissue satisfied a lot of fans in but the label ceased operation shortly thereafter, leaving the music once again unavailable. While working on other projects with Warner Bros. As Intrada was currently working with Sony on realizing yet another release of this classic score to new audiences, Kendall generously helped to gain access to all of the newly discovered master elements.
Soon we had happily embarked upon a complete restoration of Rosenthal's masterpiece, all plus minutes of it, newly mastered in thrilling stereo and sequenced to match the picture.
Amongst the treasure-trove of riches offered in this world premiere 2-CD release: the entire "Medusa" sequence, the lengthy "The Quest" music, sparkling ideas for the weapons given to Perseus and several action cues written for fight scenes between Perseus and various Ray Harryhausen creations—all presented for the first time. Of particular interest are several cues that most fans of the film ostensibly will have never heard before—subtle "a cappella" choral pieces full of complex, shifting harmonies, written for the Olympus cloud sequences with Zeus and the gods.
I say ostensibly because these cues are mixed to an almost subliminal level in the film, blended beneath wind and dialogue and virtually impossible to detect without knowing what to listen for. Even the composer believed that these cues had gone unused until we scrutinized the picture. For listeners desiring a purely symphonic experience, each of the choral pieces is indexed individually.
But for listeners wanting to experience the entire score in all of its scope and glory, these challenging choral pieces add a whole new dimension to the score and help illustrate the massive canvas Rosenthal was working with.
And finally, a word about "the extras" that appear at the close of CD 2. Since we are premiering this music sans dialogue in the album presentation, we elected to include the dialogue version here for all of those listeners familiar with and nostalgic for the LP. The original unused version of "Joppa" presents the cue in a more deliberate tempo while the alternate "The Quest" is a brief, unused version of the larger film cue, here coming to a massive, fortissimo major-key ending.
It consists primarily of a lengthy repeating cadence from tympani and bass drums. Of particular interest is the "Prologue And Main Title. The version heard in the film and on the original LP is the shorter re-scored version and is included here on CD 2 with the extras.Oct 15, · Verdiana, Opera for Orchestra by Giuseppe Verdi Salvador Camarata, New Symphony Orchestra of London.
