"Okay, Murray, you got 24 Hours. Then you better start talking, see?"





I didn't know Max was a gangster in his spare time!


24 hours! Yikes! smile


Well, he was closely associated with Cody Jarrett!
CASABLANCA or WHITE HEAT would be top of the world.




PARRISH and SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN would be cool too!
. With SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN we would need more than 19 minutes,but I am certainly game.

I'm assuming this new Max CD will be the Counterpoint release being announced tomorrow. Is that correct? Until now I'd thought we had two separate releases coming.

I was under the impression there will be 2 separate releases. Guess we'll know in maybe 12 hours.

Some time ago I heard of a major academic conference devoted to the music of Max Steiner. (I think it was via a Facebook mention by William Rosar.) It was very short notice, and there was no question of my attending the event at California State University, Long Beach, on 24-25 February. As you can see, two full days of interesting discussion were promised, featuring such well-known authorities as Bill Rosar, Jim D'Arc, Roger Hickman, and Nathan Platte (author of the wonderful book on music in Selznick productions).

http://web.csulb.edu/depts/music/areas/music-history/max-steiner-symposium.php

When I happened to come across the present discussion thread around the same time, I assumed that the title referred to this conference. Not so! I finally got around to looking through the comments here, and I don't think there's a single reference to the conference. Were none of these ardent Steiner fans aware of the event? In hindsight I'm sorry that I neglected to publicize it myself. I know that some of the FSM gang reside in California. But I simply never imagined that so many Steiner fans could be unaware of such a major undertaking.

What a fascinating illustration of a dichotomy within what I used to think of as the "film music community"! On the one hand you have scholars of film music, that is, the use of music in motion pictures. These people have little interest in "soundtrack albums." They are concerned with how the music functions in its natural habitat. Extracted recordings have little value for such studies. Then you have what you might call soundtrack fans or collectors. They long to hear the music apart from the film, preferably on archival tracks of the original recording sessions. You would think the two pursuits would intersect. But so often they do not. I continue to be amazed at the split.

There was a short note posted here about the conference. I live 2,200 miles away from Long Beach CA. Others live out of the USA and others have to work, don't have the plane fare, hotel bills etc.
Buying a CD is a whole other matter. How did you enjoy the conference?
