Successful as pianist, composer, and especially as conductor, André Previn has frequently bridged the gap between popular and so-called “serious” music, and in doing so broadened the horizons of both. This compilation features the songs and score from the film “Elmer Gantry”.

In 1960, Elmer Gantry,based on the best-selling 1927 novel by Sinclair Lewis,was brought to the screen by writer/director Richard Brooks. Previn’s score is almost a character in the film. It’s a surprisingly short score, but it informs the film every time it’s used. The “Main Title” is one of the most propulsive scene-setters in the history of film scoring, an astonishing virtuosic showpiece that sets the stage perfectly. While there are some standard religious songs sprinkled throughout the film, Previn never resorts to quoting from them in his actual score cues. Elmer Gantry was originally issued on a United Artists LP.
