Product Description

CD Description

LSO Live presents Dimitri Tiomkin s greatest film scores, the first of a new occasional LSO Live series of the greatest film music composers of all time. The LSO 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. Since then the LSO has recorded music for major blockbusters, including 'Star Wars' and 'Harry Potter'. Russian-born Tiomkin is one of the most highly regarded Hollywood film composers. A versatile composer who could create memorable scores for almost any story, Tiomkin received a staggering 22 Academy Award nominations, winning four awards. His most famous film scores include 'High Noon', 'The High and the Mighty', 'The Alamo', Hitchcock s 'Dial M for Murder' and the theme song for Rawhide'. He was also a gifted songwriter, writing standards such as the theme from 'Wild is the Wind', and 'High Noon', which won a Oscar for Best Song ( Do Not Forsake Me ). Tiomkin s strong ties with the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, resulted in the celebrated film scores for 'Shadow of a Doubt', 'Strangers on a Train', 'I Confess' and 'Dial M for Murder'. Grammy Award winner Richard Kaufman has devoted much of his musical life to conducting and supervising music for film and television productions, as well as performing film and classical music in concert halls. He regularly conducts the Pacific Symphony and Chicago Symphony Orchestras and in 2012 he conducts the San Diego Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Atlanta Symphony Orchestras. Concert reviews: "Tiomkin s music evokes his era: there s little like it to put you straight back into 1950s America ... his [Kaufman s] enthusiasm is virulently infectious to anyone around him ... a truly outstanding performance from London Voices" Bachtrack.com " Do Not Forsake Me from High Noon ... was evocatively rendered by Andrew Playfoot ... Throughout, the LSO augmented by a jazz combo, played this music stylishly and enthusiastically" Seen and Heard International "Dimitri Tiomkin was one of the most accomplished, garlanded and best-loved film music composers ever to have worked in Hollywood ... a really superb concert ... The LSO is an ensemble of such top individuals and trombonist Katy Jones brought this same singing tone to the subsequent suite from The Old Man And The Sea. There was more fine playing from the leader and from assorted members of the percussion department" Framescourer

Review

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

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!

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.

I have been listening to this CD in the car this week during my daily commute. It took me back to the wonderful concert in the Barbican in October 2011 with Richard Kaufman producing each of Dimitri Tiomkin's Oscars following the playing of the music for which he won them. Best of all I can sing along to Rawhide though not quiet the same as that night with the audience joining in with the London Voices for a fantastic rendering of this great TV classic.
