We are honoured to announce the release of the legendary Basil Poledouris’ final score, an inspiring and beautiful western score composed for the 2003 television movie The Legend of Butch and Sundance, which came out on DVD in the US on February 5. The film stars David Rogers and Ryan Browning, and was directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan, a protegé of Steven Spielberg who worked as first assistant director on Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan and Catch Me If You Can.

Basil Poledouris, who sadly passed away on November 8, 2006, was indeed one of the most popular and acclaimed composers of Hollywood film music: among his many strikingly original scores were RoboCop, The Hunt for Red October, Conan the Barbarian, Starship Troopers and Lonesome Dove (for which he wan an Emmy). The music for The Legend of Butch and Sundance was, as always, a rich one: it features a spirited main theme, rhythmic suspense and action music, Mexican-flavoured tunes, and a beautiful love theme. The music was scored for an ensemble of solo instruments including guitar, mandolin, accordion, cello and violin, and made subtle use of sampled orchestral instruments.

CD EDITION LIMITED TO 1,500 COPIES.
