Scenes from “The Louvre” (1966)
norman dello joio
This band version of “The Louvre” is taken from the original score of the NBC television special that was first broadcast nationally in November 1964. In September 1965, the composer received the Emmy Award for this score as the most outstanding music written for television in the season of 1964-1965.
The five movements of this suite cover the period of The Louvre’s development during the Renaissance and themes are used from composers of that time. The music of the fourth movement, The Nativity Paintings, is based on the beautiful Latin tune, In Dulci Jubilo.
