LEO ARNAUD DIES

After working as part of Meredith Willson’s team on THE GREAT DICTATOR, Arnaud continued his musical career in Hollywood, composing, arranging, orchestrating, and conducting—often uncredited. He received an Academy Award nomination as part of the team adapting the music for Willson’s THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN. Today, Arnaud is best known as the composer of “Bugler’s Dream,” which was originally written as part of Felix Slatkin’s “The Charge Suite” for his 1958 instrumental album Charge! NBC first used the piece as part of the 1964 Olympics and it has gone on to be the musical identity of the Games. Arnaud died in Los Angeles at age 86.
