Editorial Reviews

With a revived interest in the scores created for Hollywood films in the 1930's and 40's. "Music for the Movies: The Hollywood Sound" explores a segment of that legacy through composers like Max Steiner ("Gone With the Wind"), Franz Waxman ("Bride of Frankenstein") and Erich Korngold ("The Adventures of Robin Hood"), all of whom came from Europe. Steiner was a pupil of Ravel. The American roster includes David Raksin ("Laura") and Alfred Newman ("The Hunchback of Notre Dame"). Host and narrator John Mauceri conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales against a backdrop of clips from the various movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oustanding in Every Way! August 19, 2007
Verified Purchase
Both an educational and entertaining look at the classic Hollywood music scoring of the 1930s and 1940s. Host and narrator John Mauceri conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in carefully selected music cues from such classics as Laura, Bride of Frankenstein, Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Adventures of Robin Hood, The Song of Bernadette, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Johnny Belinda, How Green Was My Valley and Red River. Composer David Raksin gives us in depth background on the composing of his famous theme for "Laura". The process of film scoring is touched explored. Anyone who loves the film music of Steiner, Newman, Waxman, Korngold and Raskin will find this a fascinating 85 minutes. This would be great for a film course also. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Lovers of Film Music December 8, 2010
Verified Purchase
An excellent overview of the Golden Age of Hollywood film music, brimming with musical and historical insight, (Who knew that von Korngold imbued his score for "The Adventures of Robin Hood" with protest against Nazism?) The personalities of that era's great composers come through--Steiner, Newman, Waxman, Tiomkin--even though there is hardly time enough to do any full justice. The lion's share of coverage goes to David Raskin and the story of his composition of the signature theme for "Laura": Even if you know that tale, Raskin's own retelling of it is delightful, and he is good company. The disc serves equally as a primer, introducing the craft of film scoring, as well as a time capsule for the more knowledgeable. The production is intelligently written and well edited. Highly recommended.
