Varèse Sarabande will release The Man from Snowy River and Other Themes for Piano digitally and on CD starting January 27, 2017. The album features newly created piano versions of beloved themes composed and performed by Bruce Rowland. The first single, "Jessica's Theme" from The Man from Snowy River will be released digitally on January 6.
"I've always wanted to revisit some of the film and TV themes I've written over the years, and recently when I was asked to do a piano concert in Sydney, I thought that maybe it was time to start working on a concert suite version of SNOWY 1 and 2," Rowland stated. "When I started putting together some of the material, I also rediscovered lots of 'old friends' that I hadn't heard or played for many years, and so I thought, why not re-record them as a solo piano album."
The Man from Snowy River and Other Themes for Piano features music from The Man from Snowy River, Return to Snowy River, All the Rivers Run, Andre, Ponderosa, Backstage, The Cup, Adventure Island, Phar Lap, and Gunsmoke: The Last Apache, newly arranged for solo piano and performed by Rowland.
