Abstract: The musical contributions of Leo Arnaud (1904-1991), as a performer, conductor, teacher, and composer are unique and significant in the Twentieth Century. His associations with composers such as Maurice Ravel, Camille Saint-Saens, and Cole Porter, his work as an arranger and performer for numerous and highly acclaimed films including Gone With the Wind, Dr. Zhivago, and The Sound of Music, and his original compositions, including the well recognized Bugler's Dream from Charge!, the Olympic Festival fanfare and theme, provide a brief insight into Arnaud's contributions as a musician. A biographical sketch of Leo Arnaud is followed by a catalogue of his musical works and a listing of films with which Arnaud was associated.
