5.0 out of 5 stars Great film scores 22 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have waited years for these L.Ps to be reissued on CD. I now have everyone of the 12 Classic Film Score cds.
The selection is perfect. The arrangements outstanding and what glorious sound, recorded in the renowned acoustic of Kingsway Hall. The producer George Korngold son of the composer Erich Korngold was fortunate in getting such an
excellent conductor Charles Gerhardt and the National Philharmonic Orchestra to bring these classic movie themes so superbly to life. Not one of the 12 cds is a disappointment.

Errol Flynn films on this CD are top drawer and are made even better by the music score that accompany them.
A must have CD for anyone who likes swashbuckling films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opera Music for the Movies 9 Jun 2014
By Calaf68 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Korngold and Steiner all based their musical scores of films on Puccini and Wagner. Thus, their film scores basically are like mini operas.

This disc shows just how wonderful the music is of the giants of the film music industry.

There is no doubt Errol Flynn benefited greatly from this music. Just listed to They Died with their Boots on - a personal favorite of mine, and you quickly realize how stunningly beautiful this music is and why it is so beloved still today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Errol Flynn, the best musically supported actor of Hollywood 20 April 2014
By Fachwerkhaus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The celebrated RCA "Classic Film Scores" serie is still today, after 40 years, the best starting point to enter the world of Hollywood music of the Golden Age. Full symphonic music in the Romantic vein (Composer Max Steiner from Vienna once said the best film music composer would have been Wagner...), lush sound and rich orchestral texture, are the first recognizable characteristics of this music, "invented" by German, Austrian, Hungarian, and Russian emigres. The movies from the Thirties, Forties and Fifties are immediately distinguishable by anyone, after just hearing to the music soundtracks (even if not watching them).
Charles Gerhardt was the first first rate musician (along with composer Elmer Bernstein) to champion the revaluation and rediscovery of this often (and unjustly) forgotten or underestimated music. And, I add, he was possibly the best conductor for it.
In this cd, we hear some notable music by Max Steiner and Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and not only.
The "Dodge City" suite (1939, Steiner) is the only portion available on cd: the robust and epic main title music erupts with full orchestra following the Warner Bros. Fanfare (composed by Steiner in 1937); it is a classic heroic Max Steiner theme. Other notable music is the lovely and tender love theme.
After hearing the superlative 10 minutes selection from "The Adventures of Don Juan" (1948, Steiner) you'll immediately want to listen to the complete film score (Tribute Film Classics/Moscow Symphony Orchestra/William Stromberg): the "Parade into London" cue is richly orchestrate and the showpiece of the entire score.
"They Died With Their Boots On" (Steiner, 1948) shows Gerhardt ability in conducting this varied music: bugle-calls, Indian music and the love theme are perfectly combined.
"Captain Blood", "The Sea Hawk" and "The Adventures of Robin Hood", famous swashbucklers, are supported by stirring music scores by Korngold; Gerhardt captures all the excitement and emotion the music demands.
A short track by Franz Waxman (Objective Burma, 1945) and a rare gem by Hugo Friedhofer (The Sun Also Rises) complete this beautiful cd, which I recommend with no reserve.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Great Korngold Excerpts 26 Feb 2013
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Here are more selections from film scores by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, lovingly performed under the direction of Charles Gerhardt in this reissue. Whether you associate these themes with the films they were composed for or not, the music can stand by itself. Some scores are more fully represented on other discs -- Robin Hood and Objective Burma, for instance, as well as The Sea Hawk -- but the playing here is earnest and energetic, and in my view irresistible.

Love to listen to this group of Errol Flynn movie music. The quality is great. The music is a wonderful reminder of these ageless movies.
