Song of the Day #184

Song of the Day: Providence ("Valse Crepusculaire"), music by Miklos Rozsa, was dubbed the "anti-Ben-Hur" by the composer because "it had absolutely nothing of the spectacular about it." In fact, it is one of the most intimate and touching scores in the Rozsa corpus, for the 1977 film, starring John Gielgud, Dirk Bogarde, and Ellen Burstyn. I truly love a solo piano version of this particular composition by Sara Davis Buechner, as well as a solo guitar version by Gregg Nestor. Listen to an audio clip from Arthouse Cafe, Vol. 2.
