Editorial Reviews

In the early 1940s, producer David O. Selznick wanted to create a film with the healing power of psychiatry as its core theme...and he wanted Alfred Hitchcock to direct. Based on the 1928 Francis Beeding novel, The House of Dr. Edwardes, SPELLBOUND went into production with not only two charismatic stars (Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck), but also a famous surrealist artist to design the key dream sequence: Salvador Dali. The film opens at a mental clinic in the Alps, where director Murchison is about to retire and awaits his replacement, Dr. Edwards. Soon after Edwards arrives, he suffers strange outbursts triggered by parallel lines against white. Edwards love interest, Dr. Peterson (Bergman) investigates these strange occurrences and soon discovers that all is not as it appears with the mysterious Dr. Edwards, and events unfold in true Hitchcock suspense. While SPELLBOUND received several Oscar nominations, it won just one: best original score. Miklos Rozsa's work on SPELLBOUND was his only project for Alfred Hitchcock and resulted in one of his most famous scores. Featuring a passionate love theme and a theremin to evocate a sense of paranoia, Rozsa fashioned a thrilling score that has been recorded in many guises. From single and double piano concertos, concert suites, highlights, and themes, SPELLBOUND has had plenty of exposure...but never has the score been recorded in its entirety, featuring the original orchestrations. Until now. In a joint effort between Intrada and Belcanto, the SPELLBOUND score became a top priority for a full recording and it was compiled and restored by Rozsa expert Daniel Robbins. In late November 2006, the score was brought to Bratislava, Slovakia where it was recorded in its entirety with the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra at the Slovak Radio Concert Hall under the skillful baton of Allan Wilson and engineered by Peter Fuchs. For authenticity, an actual theremin was located in London and recorded at the Ridge Farm Studios in West Sussex. The theremin was performed by Celia Sheen. What has resulted is the last word on Rozsa's sumptuous score for SPELLBOUND,. Although this recording will be released in April, starting today and continuing every few days until the album is released, we'll be adding video clips from the behind the scenes recording of this project, including comments from Daniel Robbins, Paul Talkington, Rozsa Society representative Alan Hamer, conductor Allan Wilson, Doug Fake, and many clips from the recording itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Age in Movie Scores January 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is really great to have a newly recorded version of one of the famous movie scores from the forties. No, they don't write them like that anymore.
Nice to have the theremin on board as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Selznik and Slovak releases of Spellbound February 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was a simpler age when the distinction between good and evil was clear. We were God-fearing, emerging from the Great Depression and becoming a World power. The major chords of righteousness prevailed through tragedy and sorrow to insure victory and glory.

Even though my words fail me you still don't have to be a Juilliard longhair to know what I mean. The melodies were simple and went straight to the heart. Somber and tormented, determined and forceful, delicate, dignified, and lofty. Miklos Rosza wrote this for the movie of the same title. The score was grand, moody, and a landmark in its day influencing movie music to come. It was typical of stately scores of the forties including Movietone News, US Steel opening cue, and the hymn-like Americana of Aaron Copland. I don't know who influenced whom.

I am only aware of two significant albums on this piece that are full-blown extravaganzas with multiple selections. They appear to be the 1945 Selznik 78 rpm PAST CD 7093 and the 2007 Slovak release MAF 7100.

Melodies are interwoven and overlap again and again, hypnotically drawing the listener deeper and deeper. They are so well disguised as to defy counting them. Even though the piece is coherent you still don't know where its going next. It teases your memory. Like an improv with endless variations, there's always a surprise. Feelings go from splendid to creepy, and then back to triumphant. The whole piece may end in a cadence, but never really finishes and is difficult to tire. The flyers that come with the CD's break it down a lot better than I can.

The 2007 stereo release is cleaner than the 1945 monaural capture from a hissing 78 rpm. The new digital media has allowed for the expansion of the piece in terms of length, depth and variety.
