5.0 out of 5 stars Music to the blu-ray version, 4 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Battleship Potemkin [Blu-ray] [1925] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Note that the music used on the blu-ray disc is the original Edmund Meisel score. Sergei Eisenstein worked closely with Meisel for the Berlin release of 1926. Several reviews refer to Shostakovich symphonies. Yes, excerpts of these formed the soundtrack of a Russian version (which in places stretched the film to fit the music). Here. we have a different problem: Meisel's score was for the German censored version, but it has been expertly tailored to fit the version on this blu-ray by Helmut Imig. It's a terrific score that was designed to fit the various scenes and to convey the moods Eisenstein wanted. The film and the Meisel score together offer an unparalleled emotional experience for film lovers!
