The catalog was previously administered by UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP (the company retains admin rights to the catalog outside of NORTH AMERICA).
“It’s an honor for me to be once again working with the iconic music of HENRY MANCINI and the wonderful MANCINI family,” said RENZER. “HENRY MANCINI has created some of the most memorable, award-winning music for film and television and incredible songs, as well. I know that the entire SPIRIT team is excited to be representing this amazing music and finding new opportunities for this incredible catalog.”
“We are thrilled to be reunited once again with DAVID RENZER as our long-term music publisher and to work with the SPIRIT MUSIC GROUP team,” said GINNY MANCINI.
Through the deal, SPIRIT will provide a wide range of creative services, including aggressively seeking synch opportunities in film, television, and advertising for such classics as: “The Pink Panther Theme,” “Peter Gunn,” “Mr. Lucky,” “Experiment in Terror,” “Charade” and “The Sweetheart Tree.”
HENRY MANCINI died in 1994. His wife, GINNY, and their three children – CHRIS, MONICA and FELICE; and two grandchildren – CHRISTOPHER and LUCA, continue the MANCINI legacy.
