New CD Club Titles - Gremlins 2 and Outbreak!

What better way to celebrate this month’s 25th anniversary of Joe Dante’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch than with a Deluxe Edition of Jerry Goldsmith’s brilliant and manic score for this classic sequel.  Gremlins 2 is one of Goldsmith’s most loved scores of the 90s and it’s so exciting to bring the score back for a new generation.  Requests for this album have been coming in for years.  A significant expansion from the original 1990 release, Jerry Goldsmith’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch has returned!

Five Questions with Ben Wallfisch

The Desert Dancer composer sits down for 5 questions with Varese!

1. Describe your latest soundtrack on Varese.

I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to score Desert Dancer, a very special movie about freedom of expression, and the lengths a young artist living in a repressive regime will go to in order to seek it out. It’s an inspiring true story where strength, courage and passion come together, and where we are reminded that art has the power to elevate us above our struggles, sometimes in a profound way. I’m so grateful to be continuing my collaboration with Bob Townson and all the wonderful team at Varèse Sarabande - their passion for film music knows no bounds.
