MIKLÓS RÓSZA (1907-1995): El Cid (transcr. Philipp Pelster [b.1984]).
Catalogue Number: 11R089
Label: Antes Edition
Description: First Basil Poledouris’ Conan the Barbarian (08R081); now the same young German organist has transcribed (most of? all of?) Rózsa’s 1961 score for this epic film set in medieval Spain. And he plays in on a new organ in the cathedral where the Cid’s monarch, Ferdinand I, is buried. Those of you who like this sort of thing are sure to like this as well. Philipp Pelster (Klais organ of León Cathedral, Spain).
