1. Make that six stars out of five! A quick comparison of this CD with analog-reference recordings BMG RCA Victor 60863-2-RG, 1972 and BMG RCA Victor 0912-2-RG, 1975 (both CDs conducted by Charles Gerhardt, performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra, and available from Amazon.com), and DCC Compact Classics GZS-1094, 1996 (originally recorded in 1961, conducted by Lionel Newman and Kurt Graunke, performed by an uncredited Munich orchestra, and available from Amazon.com) tells all: we have had a regime change!
2. This CD is one of a quartet of releases on CD and DVD marking the 65th anniversary of the film (see reviews of the film's music on DVD-Video release Warner Home Video 65131 and DVD-Audio release Marco Polo 5.220501).
3. The score for The Adventures of Robin Hood (TAORH) won Erich Wolfgang Korngold (EWK) an Academy Award for what was his "first" swashbuckler score. He had declined to take on-screen-compositional credit for the score of CAPTAIN BLOOD, 1936, even though he wrote all but the 2-3 minutes he lifted from Liszt. A 12-minute suite Korngold distilled from his full score may have been the first film music ever performed in a concert hall (which was conducted by the composer also in 1938). Proceeding beyond the original sound track (OST), this CD contains the first recording ever made of the complete score for TAORH. It includes music that was edited out prior to the film's release (now restored in Track 19) and (in Track 6) music that never made it into the final score and, therefore, has never been heard before! The CD also presents the first modern recording in the same (or extremely close to) tempos that EWK used when he recorded the OST.

This is another in Marco Polo's series of modern recordings of classic film scores. And this is one of the REAL classics. It was written in haste by Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957) for the Warner Brothers release, but you'd never know that. There have been recordings of bits and pieces of the score before, but this is the very first one that contains all of its 75 minutes (an amazing amount of music for a film lasting only 102 minutes). Even more amazing is the fact that Korngold didn't think he could write the music because there is so much action in the movie--which means lots and lots of notes for underscoring--and because he didn't 'relate' to it. But he was prevailed upon and the result is, simply, quite amazing. The action music is appropriately perky (as the whistling tune when Robin meets Little John), agitated (as in the attack on Sir Guy and his men, and for Robin's arrest), dramatic (as for the music of the archery tournament). And then there is the insouciant theme song for the Merry Men which opens the score and recurs throughout the film. And on and on. From a strictly musical point of view, the score shows Korngold's utter ease at using leitmotivs for various characters, scenes and situations, and his ability to combine them contrapuntally when appropriate.
I have always loved Korngold's 1919 tone poem 'Sursum Corda' and knew that he quoted and extended much of that material in this score. He had done so at the urging of his father, the eminent Viennese music critic Julius Korngold, and indeed motives from that piece occur throughout the score. It first appears as a trumpet tune during the film's first appearance of Errol Flynn as Robin. The tune is memorable in all its guises.

3.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!!!! May 6, 2011
By Donaldo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This 1938 "Adventures of Robin Hood" soundtrack IS a FANTASTIC, upgraded score, by William Stromberg & Co.! However, what I received is NOT the original Marco Polo CD! It's a "NAXOS RECORDS" copy cd......so just beware, when ordering.....especially with THIS cover on the cd! Just FYI, any Naxos cd is not going to be as good as the original! They NEVER include a copy of the original booklet, or liner notes, that come with the original Marco Polo cd! Look for the "ORIGINAL" Marco Polo cd release of this...if you can find it! It's much more worth it. It's unfair to the Amazon shopper, when the "product details" don't more accurately and precisely describe what the shopper will be receiving. Also, there was a sound glitch on one of the tracks on this cd, which is just shameful, for the prices we pay for these!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Historic Soundtrack Re-Recorded Brilliantly December 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Adventures of Robin Hood was among the earliest full blown action adventure films with a full symphonic soundtrack backing, and for this reason, it is well worth exploring this excellent CD. William T Stromberg has resurrected many classic soundtrack scores similar to this one, and re-recorded the complete scores with the outstanding Moscow Symphony Orchestra. Korngold was a serious classical composer, and did not really relish this undertaking, but he gave it his best, and the merger of formal classical styles with a fast -paced action score is a treat to listen to. The modern recording does wonders in transcending the obviously older style of this soundtrack, and welcomes the modern listener. Get this one while you can on a factory pressed CD-note that the default selection is for an on demand CDR, without accompanying full graphics packaging. Highly Recommended.
