Following up to their excellent first two volumes of Rozsa's music, Chandos will be releasing a third volume containing the following pieces:

-Violin Concerto, op. 24
-Concerto for String Orchestra, op. 17
-Theme, Variations, and Finale for orchestra, op. 3 (a premiere recording, I believe)

The performers will be the BBC Philharmonic under the baton of Rumon Gamba. Jennifer Pike will be soloist in the Violin Concerto. One to look forward to Grin!

Yes...that one will go on order too Smiley

Fills in a couple of gaps for me(the Concerto for Strings and the Theme, Variations and Finale).

A welcome release but for me the Rozsa release of 2012 is Kritzerland's discovery and release of the virtually complete original 1946 film noir score for 'The Strange Love of Martha Ivers' in excellent sound.

I suspect, not far behind it and due for release this year, will be the recently recorded complete score for 'Quo Vadis?' (The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. Conducted by Nic Raine - Prometheus) and the Intrada release of the reconstructed score of the 1947 film 'The Red House' (RSNO and Winchester Cathedral Chamber Choir conducted by Allan Wilson).

For a different take on Rozsa's superb Violin Concerto listen to his marvellous score for Billy Wilder's 'The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes' (The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. Conducted by Nic Raine - Tadlow Classics) which, at Wilder's request, he based on his Violin Concerto (the slow movement being the 'love music', the final representing the Loch Ness Monster and the first movement being used throughout).
