Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Kalinak (English and film studies, Rhode Island Coll.) offers an in-depth and academic study of film scoring. Music in film may seem incidental, but Kalinak shows its extreme importance as both "articulator of screen expression and initiator of spectator response." Who can forget the theme from Jaws , which turned a peaceful ocean scene into a threatening nightmare? After introductory chapters on music and theory, Kalinak places film scores in a historical context focusing on Erich Korngold's score for Captain Blood (1939). He then analyzes various film scores: Max Steiner's The Informer (1935), Bernard Herrmann's The Magnificent Ambersons (1942), David Raskin's Laura (1944), and finally John Williams's The Empire Strikes Back (1980). This major work on scoring goes a long way toward proving the importance of music in film. For serious film and/or music collections.

Review

“A strong original contribution that manages to convey a great deal of information about film music to readers with relatively little knowledge of music. It is likely to be one of the small number of books on sound track issues that will be found on the shelves of anyone seriously interested in cinema.”—Alan Williams, Rutgers University

Format: Paperback
Easy to read. It's useful in highlighting some of the difficulties faced by music researchers, but solutions not really offered.It proved useful for my annotated bibliography, but other than to say I agreed with her that there needs to be another way of looking at film music, it didn't offer anything more in regards to my topic.
