About this Recording

PERRY, W.: Innocents Abroad (The) / Music for Mark Twain Films (Rome Philharmonic, Slovak Philharmonic, Perry)

THE SIX MARK TWAIN FILMS IN this recording present a series of exciting challenges in the variety and range of their musical requirements. THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER is set in medieval Austria and contains elements of mysticism and other-worldly dreams. THE INNOCENTS ABROAD takes place in 19th century California, Paris, Genoa, Venice, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Athens, the Crimea and Cairo, with each location calling for characteristic musical backgrounds. PUDD’NHEAD WILSON is a murder drama built around themes of slavery and misidentification. LIFE ON THE MISSISSIPPI evokes the by-gone days of riverboat traffic on the mighty Mississippi. THE PRIVATE HISTORY OF A CAMPAIGN THAT FAILED carries a compelling anti-war message drawn from events in the Civil and Spanish- American Wars. ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is, quite simply, the most famous book in American literature.
