I've got The New Moon in the Old Moon's Arms and Concerto for Sanborn and Orchestra (a.k.a. Kamen's saxophone concerto). I listen to both frequently. It is sad that the project he was working on at the time of his passing (involving Israeli and Palestinian children singing songs of peace) was never realised.
Damn, that's a high price. Is it an electric guitar or accoustic, by the way?
It's an electric guitar.
If you want to save yourself a ton of cash - do what I did and order it from Amazon Japan. With shipping, it comes to about $30. (and, yes, there is an option to change the Amazon Japan to a limited english format, so you can read it)
You mean they weren't playing in front of an audience?
they naturally WERE playing live.
No, no, they were just plastic dumies, that resembled orchestra members
Anyway, Kamen is one of those persons, that I find a hard time thinking that is gone... and you understand what I mean when you watch him conduct. There was so much energy and life in him, that it seems he would never go away... sadly, he did.
In addition to the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Kamen also composed music for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. One track, titled "The Fire Within", was featured on the "limited edition" CD "Salt Lake 2002 Official Music of the Games" (track 9):
The work itself is similar to "On Wings of Victory" and definitely worth hunting down.
I wonder if theres an "original recording" of Poledouris's work. I have the Silva rerecording - but the choral aspect is not recorded properly (Could someone who's heard it throw in some adjatives here? I think the term is "too wet" but recording terminology is largely new and alien to me)
