Just the name alone conjures up memories of the golden age of Hollywood and all the great music that came from that era. One of the many composers leading that charge was composer Miklós Rózsa. Whether it's the "The Thief of Bagdad" or "Spellbound" or his Academy Award winning score to "Ben-Hur", Mr. Rózsa delivered high quality music in a career that spanned over 45 years.

Bruce's stunning, pastoral and much much loved score for 1982's The Man From Snowy River is one of the best-selling Varèse Sarabande releases in history! Most definitely one of the early releases that this company was founded on. Lots of Varèse history in this photo, not to mention Bob Peak's portrait of Jerry Goldsmith, with Jerry looking over my shoulder! Bruce Rowland and Robert Townson. Beverly Hills, CA. January 27, 2016.
