Description
In twenty years of existence, Turner Classic Movies Network has celebrated “the classic sound of Hollywood” both in its recognition of the important role music plays in the movies, and in its continual programming of movies that owe much of their enduring appeal to the music that accompanies them. As well as audiences at the time knew Gable and Garbo, Bogart and Bergman, they knew the music of the composers who created that classic sound: Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman, Max Steiner, Miklós Rózsa, Dimitri Tiomkin, and – a bit later –Maurice Jarre, Elmer Bernstein, Henry Mancini, Ennio Morricone and John Williams.

Presented in conjunction with Sony Masterworks, this new 2-CD collection celebrates “the classic sound of Hollywood” with music from the acclaimed Classic Film Scores series recorded in the early 1970s by conductor Charles Gerhardt. It includes two great suites from scores by Erich Wolfgang Korngold – Of Human Bondage and The Sea Hawk, both re-edited by Gerhardt – that have been unavailable for over a decade. The second CD features definitive moments from the greatest of all movie scores including Gone with the Wind, King Kong, Lawrence of Arabia, Ben-Hur, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and more.

    Poor quality on some tracks. I realize this is a remastered CD. I am more pleased with the Korngold music from Warner Brothers classics. The music in movies add so much to the overall mood of the film. I expected a better selection of movie themes and more clarity of sound.

          Awesome 2 disc set of great music from some of the classics. There are 18 tracks for 107 minutes of listening pleasure. Certainly will bring back fond memories of some of these classic films.

            Comments about this product:

            The CD case that holds the two CDs had to be destroyed to get the discs out.

            It appeared that the plastic had melted on one side of the CD case and could not be opened.

            The music itself is great, but I no longer have a jewel case to carry them in.

              The first CD is great as you get scores that you never here anyone else play. 2nd CD has the classic hits.

                    Thought I would receive Original soundtracks, but no... Music is nice, but selection is weird. Too much from "Psycho", and "The Thing". Thought some other movies should've been represented.
