Laurence Rosenthal: 'The Miracle Worker,' 'A Raisin In The Sun,' and More
Saturday, November 02, 2013
Composer Laurence Rosenthal brings unusual musical sophistication, wide experience and subtle dramatic power to his film scores. Rosenthal's studies at the Eastman School of Music, and with famous Parisian pedagogue Nadia Boulanger, have led him create movie music that can have the integrity and depth of concert music.
With Rosenthal's 87th birthday coming up on Nov. 4, David Garland presents highlights from some of his many film and television scores, ranging from his work on such classics as "The Miracle Worker," "A Raisin In the Sun" and "Becket" to the more recent "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles."
