Cleopatra Movie Suite (1960)

Cleopatra Movie Suite (1960)
Music by Alex North

Considered by the experts as one of the top two movie suites by Mr. North (the other one being Spartacus), we have a pristine example of the art from one of the premier artists of the 40's and 50's. Almost three hours of music has been whipped into two distinctive suites. The first part covers the meeting and love story of Julius Ceasar and Cleopatra, while the second part begins with Cleopatra entering into Rome, the fall of Ceasar and the doomed love story of Antony and Cleopatra. With a timing of 21:46 for Part 1 and 25:25 for Part 2, there is still a plethora of epic music to listen to. I hope you enjoy!  -MJ

Thanks for the classic film music; the suites have more strength than the complete scores. I appreciate a lot the ones by Korngold (Sea Hawk, Captain Blood)& Rozsa (Quo Vadis). And we have the choice between lossless & lossy (when the links are still workin'). Good job !!
