5.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT Spellbound May 12, 1999
By A Customer
Though the subtitle says this is the "Spellbound" concerto (adapted from Rozsa's film score for the Hitchcock thriller), it is not. Both concertos date from twenty-odd years later in Rozsa's career (in the sixties), and both feature a somewhat more intense sound than most of his familiar film scores (Ben Hur, Ivanhoe). Closer in sound to the many scores he wrote for film noirs in the 40's -- sounds something like Bartok, though more enjoyably melodic (but still-driving!). Fabulous work from one of the best composers of the century.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as these are, there are better! December 30, 2011
If you're looking for probably the definitive recordings of these two sadly-neglected works, seek out the Pantheon CD Miklos Rozsa: Piano Concerto Op. 31, Cello Concerto Op. 32 with Leonard Pennario and Janos Starker. The performances and sound are uniformly excellent and frankly transcend the Koch recording (but I cannot praise James Sedares and the folks at the late, lamented Koch International enough for recording and re-introducing a profoundly important composer to the 'listening' world).
