  • About This Album

    This collection from the Nonesuch film series contains scores by Leonard Rosenman (1924–2008) to two classic James Dean films, East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause, performed by the London Sinfonietta and conductor John Adams. "These are scores in the classic Hollywood style: monumental, picturesque, lavishly orchestrated and unashamedly manipulative," said the New York Times. "That last quality is central, and depends on a language rich in familiar gestures."
