Description
Charles Amirkhanian interviews Viennese composer and conductor Ernest Gold. At the time of this recording Gold was living in Los Angeles where he made his living largely by composing for the stage and the screen. He describes the process by which one synchronizes the music to film, and bemoans the fact that when composing for TV one is usually given just a couple of weeks to come up with 90 minutes of material. Also discussed is Gold’s interest in conducting, playing tennis, and horseback riding.
