Offers a look at musical concertos for motion pictures in the United States. Overview of composers for American films with a focus on Miklos Rozsa. Includes a reference to Holmes and a photo of Wilder and Rozsa. "...When Hollywood director Billy Wilder first heard Rozsa's composition, he liked it so much he decided to construct a film around it. The result was The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970). The composer remodelled his concerto to the needs of the film. The first movement pointed up the introspective character of the cocaine-addicted, violin-playing detective; the beautiful slow movement proved ideal for highlighting the relationship between Holmes and the spy Gabrielle; and the tense, dynamic third movement set the mood as the film moved towards its dramatic Loch Ness climax. Never short of inspiration, Rozsa then added a march - 'Elgarian' in spirit - to accompany the arrival of Queen Victoria at Balmoral. Finally, as if to put his personal stamp on it all, he makes an appearance in the film, conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of Swan Lake."

The article reviews the music release "Choral & Organ Music," composed by Patrick Gowers. Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...High points among the choral works (most with organ) are 'Libera Me II', a profound and mournful piece (heard in a different version in the previous album) that was originally written for the Sherlock Holmes TV series. Gowers's four-piece Advent Sequence contains some memorable moments, especially in the slowly unfolding opening item, 'Ad te Levavi'. The mysterious fourth piece, 'Memento Nostri', is also something special...."
