At last! World premiere of original score from mega-hit fourth installment of wildly popular Rocky saga, starring Sylvester Stallone as iconic boxer, with Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers-and formidable Russian opponent Dolph Lundgren. Original album featured songs plus two excerpts from score. Intrada release offers entire score by Vince DiCola, including his arrangement of classic "Theme from ROCKY" by Bill Conti. Unleashed at last is this rich score, initially for keyboards, ultimately for large orchestra. Many highlights include the haunting piano/cello theme for "Apollo's Death and Funeral", the powerful "Up the Mountain" sequence, the dynamic "Training Montage", the powerhouse "War", and the epic "Knockout" for full orchestra. Intrada presents the score in a crisp, punchy stereo mixed directly from original 24-track digital masters courtesy of Sony. Vivid artwork courtesy of MGM, enthusiastic liner notes by Daniel Schweiger. Finally, the biggest gap in Rocky soundtrack series is filled! Vince DiCola composes, produces. Jeremy Lubbock orchestrates, conducts.
