Not so much the Alamo more Dimitri Tiomkin!
I do not understand why the work of Dimitri Tiomkin, the composer of the music for the original film, "The Alamo", and many other great film successes, is not heard today. He has a genius for relating human emotional experience to expression in music in a way only hitherto exemplorised by Mozart, Faure, Rutter, Martynov and Tchaikovsky!
For reasons imponderable, his music seems to have been suppressed. This is disastrous! He has the power to invoke in the listener, deep emotional feelings of an order rarely experienced. Listening to his music arouses emotions that hithertoo were overwhelmed by the synthetic lives that we find ourselves navigating in the so called "modern age."
Music appreciation will be rewarded after experiencing Tiomkin's genius expressed completely in the Alamo! In this score Tiomkin demonstrates his remarkable breadth of skill in a range of tracks covering Joy, sadness, triumph and defeat. How is it possible, in what must have been a very short period in time, for him to produce such a beautiful collection of contrasting moods.
Hear this and you will understand, indeed, you will know, what real musical genius can do.
