Format: Audio CD
This marvelous cd, one of the best in the legendary RCA Classic Film Scores serie, was recorded in 1973 and contains some of the best Max Steiner movie music, from the 1930s-50s.
After 40 year, and many new champions in the task of reconstruction and re-recording of movie music, the Charles Gerhardt Albums still stand powerful as the necessary starting point for any serious fan and collector of this art.
It is no coincidence if John Morgan and William Stromberg, for example, selected many titles for their gargantuan complete re-recordings that were already chosen in the short but outstanding suites prepared by Gerhardt: in this album we hear music from "King Kong" and "The Charge of the Light Brigade", both scores completely re-recorded by them for Marco Polo and Tribute Film Classics labels.
On the other side, this album offers the only opportunity to listen in excellent stereo to "The Big Sleep" and "The Fountainhead" (both titles are in need of complete re-recordings, by the way...).

The lush sound of the music composed in the Hollywood Golden Age is perfectly captured by the opulent National Philharmonic Orchestra and Gerhardt is a master in recreating all the nuances of this gorgeous music.

One last word about "The Fountainhead": in this album the suite is 8:07 minutes long. But Gerhardt conceived originally a 13:21 minutes suite, including a piano solo cue (Gerhardt playing it by himself at the piano).
This long suite is available as part of the cd "Celebrating the Classics", a limited edition released in connection with the issue by the U.S. Postal Service of 6 Hollywood film composers stamps, in 1999.

The Great Max Steiner 14 April 2012
By Joe Gillis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First let me say this is a great cd, full of wonderful music, most of which one cannot hear anywhere else. Max Steiner's career went all the way back to the early 30's with scores like King Kong. He was in Hollywood at the start of sound. The man was in the right place at the right time. And kudos to Amazon, you're shipping and service has been great.

A musical genius! 31 Jan. 2009
By Joseph E. Lechnar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To suggest that Max Steiner is a musical genius would be an understatement. Here is a microcosm of work that barely scratches the surface of his myriad talents. Beautifully arranged and wonderfully recorded, this is a tribute to the music of a fantastic composer, and is a throwback to the "Golden Age of Hollywood". We will not see another like him in our time. Highly recommended!

At the top of the Classic Film Scores serie 20 April 2014

This long suite is available as part of the cd "Celebrating the Classics", a limited edition released in connection with the issue by the U.S. Postal Service of 6 Hollywood film composers stamps, in 1999.

For fans of Max Steiner, I also strongly suggest a beautiful cd originally issued by Scannan Film Classics: "The Flame and the Arrow - Classic Film Music by Max Steiner".
The cd comprises short suites (in the Gerhardt fashion) from titles never before released. Kenneth Alwyn conducts the City of Prague Philharmonic in a stunning selection, that includes "Spencer's Mountain", "Mildred Pierce", "The Dark at the Top of the Stairs", "Sergeat York", etc.

Track list:

1. Now, Voyager: Warner Bros. Fanfare and Main Title / Love Scene and Finale (5:51)
2. King Kong: The Forgotten Island / Natives / Sacrificial Dance / The Gate of Kong / Kong in New York (7:16)
3. Saratoga Trunk: As Long As I Live (2:30)
4. The Charge of the Light Brigade: Forward the Light Brigade (2:37)
5. Four Wives: Symphonie Moderne (8:06)
6. The Big Sleep: Main Title / Marlowe / Bookshop / Murder / Chase / Love Theme and Finale (7:03)
7. Johnny Belinda: Suite (5:05)
8. Since You Went Away: Main Title (1:25)
9. The Informer: Main Title / Love Scene / Sancta Maria (4:33)
10. The Fountainhead: Main Title (Roark's Theme) / Dominique's Theme / The Quarry / Construction - Enright House / Finale - The Wynand Building (8:07)

music to build dreams upon 10 May 2007
By Darryl K. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
gerhardt's recordings of suites and themes from classic films are the groundstone for the collector of film music. the orchestra is first rate and rarely does gerhardt sacrifice any of the integrity in translating materials in to shorter, compact versions of the original.

my personal favorite is the 'johnny belinda' suite. the main themes are put together beautifully and the quality of the recording is pristine.

in one case or two, gerhardt improved upon the original. the 'symphonie moderne' for piano and orchestra got a little pumping when gerhadt included it in this collection. in the film there is very little opportunity for the piano to stand out; in this recording, the piano is the star. and the cadenzas take on the same qualities of showiness, glamour and fire that was to be found in many of warner bros' most famous stars.

these recordings are like potato chips--once you buy one, you will want all of them. and the ultimate challenge will be to find them on vinyl.

Distinctively Max Steiner and Charles Gerhardt 29 Oct. 2013
By gobirds2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Now Voyager: The Classic Film Scores of Max Steiner is a solid album from the Charles Gerhardt series. Max Steiner music was very distinctive always playing to our instincts. Here Charles Gerhardt brings a certain power and vitality to all the selections. It has always been hard for me to pick just one. I think the selections for JOHNNY BELINDA and THE FOUNTAINHEAD are my favorites on this CD. I love this entire album. This series and these albums were really great and memorable recordings. I loved them all.
