by the great Bernard Herrmann in his early heyday as composer for 20th Century-Fox
recorded here by the team of Stromberg and Morgan before they started their Tribute
Film Classics label.
"The Snows of Kilimanjaro" was always one of my favorite Herrmann scores and this fresh new recording is wonderfully executed and for me a most pleasant surprise was their inclusion of his complete music from that suspenseful James Mason spy classic
"Five Fingers" that I thought would never be done. An excellent album with great liner notes and excellent performances from the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. Now if only they would do a complete "Beneath the 12-Mile Reef" and "Journey to the Center
of the Earth" to be added to their list of superb Bernard Herrmann recordings.
An excellent album, worth having!!
