Editorial Reviews

For the first release in a new series from LSO Live focusing on classic film music, LSO Live presents a selection of the greatest scores by the legendary Dimitri Tiomkin. The London Symphony Orchestra's association with the film industry stretches all the way back to Arthur Bliss's music for Things to Come, the first time an orchestra had recorded a movie soundtrack. More recently, the LSO has recorded music for major blockbusters including Star Wars and Harry Potter. Russian-born Tiomkin was one of Hollywood's most highly regarded and versatile composers, who could create memorable scores for almost any story. Tiomkin received a staggering 22 Academy Award nominations, winning four awards. This new recording features veteran conductor Richard Kaufman leading the orchestra in selections from High Noon, The High and the Mighty, The Alamo, Hitchcock's Dial 'M' for Murder and the theme song for Rawhide.

These performances might be of some slight value in terms of bringing Tiomkin's music to the attention of those unfamiliar with his brilliance. But for anyone who already knows and admires the scores represented here, this recording will surely disappoint. There is little or no passion in evidence and virtually everything here is dull and uninspiring compared to the original soundtracks and some of the fine re-recordings that are available. This isn't altogether surprising when one considers the conductor involved - his previous film music recordings have usually been full of good intentions but empty of fire in the belly.

YIKES!!! Cannot believe this is the LSO. This is a very anemic sounding recording. There is no detail in the arrangements. They totally lack the Tiomkin color. Sounds like only half the orchestra was at the sessions. Personally, I like Kaufman's other recordings. SKIP THIS ONE.

The performance lacks heart and conveys nothing of the "soul" and energy to be found in properly performed Tiomkin music. It's just not compelling. Nor is the recording well mounted. The orchestra sounds on the tinny and tiny side. Vocals lack lustre.

I am writing this to compensate for what I consider an unfair weighted average of stars earned by this item.
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.
