espacially here, in Europe, precisely in France.
The opportunities to get more about Miklos Rozsa are so rare we only could get happy to read this book.
If we have to nominate one: he was the greatest film music composer !
He has been my friend for about ten years, and I have been happy to visit him at his home in 93.

The main section of the book contains typed reproductions of around 40 items of correspondence from Rozsa to Dane. These consist of postcards, Christmas cards and letters. Unfortunately, the correspondence is essentially trivial in nature; the majority of which begin by thanking Dane for the receipt of a gift of some kind. Rightly or wrongly, the book comes across as a piece of fan worship, resulting in a book of uncritical adulation which ill-serves the composer, who, in terms of biographical remembrance, surely deserves something better.
The arrangement of the book is all over the place, with occasional detours and separate chapters to discuss other composers which indicate padding more than anything else.Read more ›
