Cinema’s Exiles: From Hitler to Hollywood follows the journey of Jewish filmmakers, actors - and composers - who fled Nazi Germany to America before WW2. Peter Melnick’s chambersized score provides an intimate and honest accompaniment to the dramatic story, but also offers a lot of infectious jazz numbers influenced by the popular music aesthetics of the era. Such Hollywood legends as Fritz Lang, Franz Waxman, Robert Siodmak and Erich Wolfgang Korngold are portrayed in Melnick’s score. The album also features a wonderful rendition of the classic Friedrich Hollaender song 'Wenn ich mir was wunschen durfte.'
The album also includes an archival recording of Franz Waxman’s score for Liliom, the work that ultimately launched his Hollywood career, and three film songs penned by Waxman before he left Europe for America. -MOVIESCORE MEDIA
