OUT OF PRINT CD. World premiere release of magnificent, moving original soundtrack by Laurence Rosenthal to classic Daniel Petrie filming of Lorraine Hansberry play, presented by Columbia Pictures, starring Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee, Claudia McNeil, Louis Gossett. Rosenthal creates music in rich Americana mode, then balances with dramatic orchestral outbursts for conflicts, flavorful jazz for locale. Moving main theme remains at heart throughout. Along with THE MIRACLE WORKER, arguably composer's richest work! Intrada presents complete score from mint condition 1/4 inch mono masters courtesy Sony Pictures. Also appearing are all surviving tracks from Rosenthal's brief but powerful score for Ralph Nelson's REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT (nearly all of it), starring Anthony Quinn, Mickey Rooney, Jackie Gleason. Dramatic presentation is in superb mono sound from similar mint condition 1/4 inch master elements. Two masterful films with magnificent music to match! Laurence Rosenthal conducts. Intrada Special Collection limited to 1500 copies! ---INTRADA
