NOTES
Il cuore dell'album è la musica originale Rosenman per Alessandro Magno, interpretato da William Shatner e si è candidato per la stagione autunnale 1964, ABC. Rosenman ha composto una partitura di massa corale e orchestrale per questo set epico nel I secolo aC Può essere il risultato più ambizioso mai scritto per una serie televisiva non realizzato. Sono inclusi anche 19 minuti di musica composta e diretta da Rosenman a Roma nel 1962;! Estratti da Rosenman è vincitrice di un Emmy score per la miniserie Sibilla 1976, tra cui una registrazione inedita di una canzone, "I Remember Me", scritta per la miniserie di Rosenman e parolieri Marilyn e Alan Bergman, ed eseguito dal noto cantante Shelby Flint, e selezioni dal suo punteggio toccante per uno dei progetti finali Michael Landon, il nominato agli Emmy Dove Piccioni Go To Die (1990), interpretato da Art Carney. A completare l'album è la sua musica per Body Wars, composto nel 1989 per un progetto diretto dal suo amico Leonard Nimoy, con il quale ha lavorato in Star Trek IV. Body Wars è stato un tema-parco di attrazioni a Walt Disney Epcot Center in Florida, la corsa è stato un viaggio attraverso il corpo umano, che ricordava di Fantastic Voyage, che Rosenman aveva composto nel 1966.

The centerpiece of the album is Rosenman's original music for the legendary unsold television pilot Alexander the Great, which starred William Shatner and was a candidate for the fall 1964 season on ABC. Rosenman composed a massive choral and orchestral score for this epic set in the first century B.C. It may be the most ambitious score ever written for an unrealized television series. Also included are 19 minutes of music from the original first-season library of television's landmark war series Combat!, composed and conducted by Rosenman in Rome in 1962; excerpts from Rosenman's Emmy-winning score for the 1976 miniseries Sybil, including an unreleased recording of a song, "I Remember Me," written for the miniseries by Rosenman and lyricists Marilyn and Alan Bergman, and performed by noted vocalist Shelby Flint; and selections from his touching score for one of Michael Landon's final projects, the Emmy-nominated Where Pigeons Go To Die (1990) which starred Art Carney. Rounding out the album is his music for Body Wars, composed in 1989 for a project directed by his friend Leonard Nimoy, with whom he worked on Star Trek IV. Body Wars was a theme-park attraction at Walt Disney's EPCOT Center in Florida; the ride was a journey through the human body that was reminiscent of Fantastic Voyage, which Rosenman had scored in 1966.
