Quo Vadis Movie Suite

Quo Vadis Movie Suite
Music by Miklos Rozsa

This classic 1951 movie suite relates the tale of a motion picture about the evil Roman Dictator Nero who watched while Rome burned.  Mr. Rozsa utilized a mixed choral, orchestral beginning that pins you back before slowly building into an intense tour de force at the mid section of the suite. The pace begins to cut back until we slowly hear the subdued climax. Never had I heard this before, but to discover something new and with some teeth, is always a treat. With a timing of 22:22, I hope you enjoy this.  -MJ
