A Rivendell String Quartet Arrangement.  The haunting “Lara’s Theme” was composed forDavid Lean’s epic romantic drama DoctorZhivago  (1965), and netted filmcomposer Maurice Jarre his second Academy Award for Best Original Score (he hadwon for Lawrence of Arabia in 1962,and would win again in 1984 for A Passageto India).

This beautiful instrumental melody took on a life of its ownwhen Paul Webster added lyrics to make it “Somewhere, My Love” in 1966.  Ray Coniff and the Ray Coniff Singers had a US Top 10 hitwith it the same year, and it has remaineda popular ballad ever since.  Thiswell-known piece is wonderful for preludes and receptions.
