Anyone who loves (or admires) the music of Miklós Rózsa should take note of the possibility of contributing to a Kickstarter project to re-record his score for King of Kings.


Whilst I am contended to have the Rhino release of the original motion picture soundtrack and a Rózsa re-recording of extracts, I have committed to fund the project to the tune of Ł200 and will go to Ł250 if the target looks like it is going to be reached.  In the absence of supporting labels who are willing to fund recordings unlikely to recoup outlays, such recordings are less likely to be made.

I recall the Stanley Bate Cello Concerto recording sought Ł2000 by way of Kickstarter to make it possible and reached the target.

The Rózsa project is over 60% funded with the Tadlow label's owner willing to fund the remaining 50 plus per cent of the recording costs. 

This Kickstarter project was started at the request and promtings of various Rózsa fans badgering James Fitzpatrick of Tadlow for a King of Kings recording - something he said he was not prepared to do without financial support, having funded lots of loss making recordings.  Perhaps classical music enthusiasts could badger a record label for a recording of a much desired work and contribute to a crowfudning forum to help make it possible.
