Martin Scorsese has selected 15 films by fellow Academy Award-winning director Elia Kazan for the Elia Kazan Film Collection, a new, 18-disc box set, capturing what NPR's Fresh Air recently described as "some of the most mythic performances in film history." Included are three films whose scores were recorded for the Nonesuch Film Series: A Streetcar Named Desire, Viva Zapata!, and East of Eden.
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."
