Description

Christus Apollo.

Original Music by Jerry Goldsmith.

Set to the text of Ray Bradbury!


OVERVIEW: Famed film and TV composer Jerry Goldsmith had one foot in the classical world, as shown by his 1969 Christus Apollo Cantata Celebrating the Eighth Day of Creation and the Promise of the Ninth, set to a text by Ray Bradbury. "I was very pleased with the wonderful accidents that caused me to write this long poem," science fiction master Bradbury wrote after the work's premiere. "But then the music comes along and says, ‘You think you’re flying? Well, listen to this. This will make you fly even higher."

"An ambitious, sincere and supremely well-wrought offering, whose progressive harmonic sensibility and imaginative instrumental resource will come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Goldsmith's genuinely adventurous and striking score … for The Planet of the Apes. Music for Orchestra … is as compact as it is powerfully emotive. By contrast, Fireworks (written in 1999 for a Hollywood Bowl concert and subtitled 'A Celebration of Los Angeles') is an unashamedly tuneful crowdpleaser, rousingly and effectively scored. Enthusiastic, spick-and-span orchestral playing … and superlative Abbey Road sound."—Gramophone

2002 Telarc CD. New and unplayed.
