First of all, the fact that a label released a CD of Tiomkin music is already worth celebrating. Mr. Tiomkin was one of the great in the Golden Era of Hollywood scores (along with Steiner, Korngold, Newman, et al) and not many anthologies of his film music are out there compared to the others. He earned one release in the iconic series of recordings from the 70's conducted by Charles Gerhardt, but his was, admittedly, not one of the best of the lot.
Now you can criticize all you want this release but I find the conducting and playing quite good and the sound as good as any antology you might find on RCA, Silva or Naxos. Since I am avid collector of these, my comparative hearing states it clearly.
This truly covers (77' minutes!) the gamut of Tiomkin's oeuvre. From the epic to the more mellow; and along the way you'll hear some truly mmorable melodies. So, from my side: kudos to Mr Kaufman & daughter, the LSO & Voices and the label LSO for this.
