Product Description


What happens when you combine the music of one of the worlds most respected film music composers with the worlds leading symphony orchestra performing it? Well you get a superb collection of marvellous and magical music played to perfection...The LSO and conductor Richard Kaufman must be applauded for bringing us this outstanding recording which is very well presented with notes on the composer, artists involved on the recording, a brief history of the LSO and their connections with film scores, a track by track description and information on each film. This is an essential purchase. --John Mansell, Run Movies

Among the greatest Hollywood composers, Dimitri Tiomkin once made an Oscar acceptance speech in which he thanked Brahms, Strauss, Beethoven and Rimsky-Korsakov for teaching him his craft. He was much derided at the time, though in fact his classical pedigree was impeccable. Born in the Ukraine, he studied composition with Glazunov in St Petersburg and established himself as a pianist, specialising in Scriabin, before the US beckoned. His music remained rooted in Russian late Romanticism. Borodin is never far away from his score for The Alamo, while the famous title theme for the TV series Rawhide gravitates, more than once, towards Glazunov. Elsewhere, Rimsky collides with Wagner in The Fall of the Roman Empire, while clotted, Scriabinesque harmonies accompany Ray Milland's terrorisation of Grace Kelly in Dial M for Murder. This fine selection was recorded at the Barbican last year, and is played with terrific panache by the London Symphony Orchestra under Richard Kaufman. Andrew Playfoot, meanwhile, sings Do Not Forsake Me from High Noon as one born to it. **** --The Guardian

Tiomkin s music certainly does deserve resuscitation on disc and this excellently produced and recorded issue does its subject proud. --International Record Review September 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant collection 8 Aug 2012
By hoshi
The orchestra and the choir perform together brilliantly in this performance of famous Dimitri Tiomkin scores. I absolutely love Hitchcock films and so am very happy to see the disc features music from the films `Strangers on a Train' and `Dial M for Murder.' The theme song from `Rawhide' is absolutely brilliant, I have it on repeat! The London Symphony Orchestra, the orchestra performing on this CD, are very well known for their film music so this CD is a great opportunity to hear them in action. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Tiomkin 16 Aug 2012
This is a wonderful recording! In particular, the mastering is superb. You don't usually get such a varied dynamic range on film score recordings but on this CD it's obvious that attention was paid to ensuring that the musicality of the scores was kept in place - the loud bits are not just loud, they are passionate , luxurious, motivating and the quiet bits are mysterious, gentle, peaceful etc. I think the mastering on this CD captures Tiomkin's intended volumes and quality perfectly. This disc tops all other Tiomkin collections.
