    New Elia Kazan Box Set Includes Films Featured in Nonesuch Film Series

    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 out this week from 20th Century Fox, capturing what NPR's Fresh Air recently described as "some of the most mythic performances in film history." Included in the collection are three films whose scores are available on Nonesuch: A Streetcar Named Desire, Viva Zapata!, and East of Eden.

    In 1997, Nonesuch released new recordings of these scores as part of the Nonesuch Film Series, which focused on the works of some of the 20th century's most acclaimed film composers: Alex North, Leonard Rosenman, Georges Delerue, and Toru Takemitsu.

    On The Film Music of Alex North, Eric Stern conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in performances of A Streetcar Named Desire and Viva Zapata!, as well as Spartacus, The Misfits, and The Bad Seed. The New York Times, in reviewing the album, noted its covering North's "estimable stylistic arsenal." To hear clips from the album and pick up a copy, click here.

    The Nonesuch recording of the East of Eden score can be heard on The Film Music of Leonard Rosenman, on which composer John Adams conducts the London Sinfonietta. Also on the album is Rosenman's score to another classic James Dean film, Rebel Without a Cause. "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." To hear clips from this album and pick up a copy, click here.
