Album Spotlight: Cinema Serenade 2 The Golden Age
Posted Jul 30, 2021 by itzhakperlman

Nearly two years after the successful debut of Cinema Serenade, Itzhak Perlman reunited with conductor John Williams for a 12-track collection of movie themes from the Golden Age of Hollywood on the album entitled, Cinema Serenade 2: The Golden Age in 1999.

On this sequel, Itzhak Perlman and John Williams are joined by “America’s Orchestra”: the Boston Pops.

All the compositions are from films released between 1936 (Smile from Modern Times) and 1952 (the traditional Irish gig St. Patrick’s Day from The Quiet Man). 

Cinema Serenade 2: The Golden Age features 11 new arrangements – especially constructed to match Itzhak Perlman’s performing style by Maestro Williams or Boston Pops arranger Angela Morley. Some of the performances of certain themes, such as Max Steiner’s Tara’s Theme from Gone With the Wind or David Raskin’s Laura, are markedly different from those heard in other Boston Pops Orchestra recordings made with either Maestro Williams or his predecessor, the late Arthur Fiedler.

“This one is a lot of fun for me,” Itzhak Perlman told The Globe And Mail. “It’s something I worked on with [composer] John Williams and he arranged those pieces for me. They sound really good and his orchestrations are absolutely terrific.”
