"THIS IS THE BIG ONE!” proclaimed the ads. Miklós Rózsa’s score for the 1951 epic Quo Vadis is one of the biggest “holy grails” for soundtrack collectors, but the loss of the original music tracks has meant that the complete score, unencumbered by effects and/or archival sound quality, has been unavailable – UNTIL NOW!

Produced by James Fitzpatrick (Tadlow Music) for Prometheus Records, this 2CD Collector’s Edition of the complete score features previously unreleased music (including the complete 7-minute “Burning of Rome” sequence and several cues that were dropped from the film), newly recorded in stunning and dynamic digital sound. From Nero’s songs to arena hymns, from powerful Roman marches and fanfares to a gorgeous love theme, from colorful music at the Roman Bacchanale to fiery music for the burning of Rome, from the exultant “Main Title” to the ecstatic “Finale” – it’s all here! Over 136 minutes of classic and glorious Rózsa, carefully reconstructed from the original studio scores by Leigh Phillips and excitingly performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus under the baton of Nic Raine. Bonus tracks include the premiere complete stereo recording of Rózsa’s Quo Vadis Suite.

The 28-page booklet, illustrated with film stills and recording session photographs, includes detailed and informative notes by Frank K. DeWald and background information on the recording by producer Fitzpatrick.
