An epic, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, is "an extended narrative poem in elevated or dignified language, celebrating the feats of a legendary or traditional hero."
The epic has been among the most popular and enduring of all film genres, and some of the finest examples of the music composed to help create the historical and imaginary worlds of the silver screen are featured in this Telarc collection of Epics by Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra.
The legendary Erich Kunzel has been conducting the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra since 1965 and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra since its inception in 1977. He has since led the ensemble to unprecedented success with music lovers worldwide who have discovered the CPO through its performances, television programs and best-selling Telarc recordings. His previous Telarc release, Got Swing! (CD-80592), features popular American music from the 1930s and 1940s.
