The Sound of Hollywood - John Mauceri

Limited edition 16CD set

The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra breathed new life into the orchestral pops repertoire, told new stories and brought in new audiences when it was revived under the conductor John Mauceri in the 1990s. At the centrepiece of this collection are all of the original HBO albums released by Philips from 1991–96.

From Gershwin to Ligeti, The Firebird to Edward Scissorhands, The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra breathed new life into the orchestral ‘pops’ repertoire, told new stories and brought in new audiences when it was revived under the conductor John Mauceri in 1990.

From the start, they played to capacity audiences at the Hollywood Bowl, where the Los Angeles Philharmonic had been giving concerts since 1922. Now reformed as a separate ensemble – ‘the world’s greatest pick-up band’, auditioned by Mauceri and his colleagues from freelancers across the West Coast – the new Hollywood Bowl Orchestra played a huge repertoire of classical, contemporary, film and Broadway, and recorded the highlights for Philips.
