The film music from the original and best version of Robin Hood. Korngold new this was the film that saved his life and he put his heart and soul into it. One of the great film music scores which has inspired other great composers like John Williams and John Barry.

This CD is a must have for any film buff or music afficianado alike.The classic soundtrack is not the original recording from the film but is nevertheless an almost perfect reproduction of the original.Re-created by E.W.Korngold's son the whole C.D. is a polished memorial to his fathers undoubted talents.The tracks themselves are no stranger to anyone who has not imagined themselves as the child of their youth, fighting evil in the guise of Prince John or swinging through the trees to rescue a damsel in distress.This particular C.D. is made all the more interesting by the pull out booklet in the cover notes which gives a brief but interesting resume of how the music came to be written and the backround to the composers life and how he and his family fled nazi Germany to the safety of America,once again good versus evil but this time for real.

Much loved film given life by the finest dramatic score to come out of Hollywood's golden era. Essential listening for anyone interested in film or classical music. Perhaps even better than The Sea Hawk, and surpassing Max Steiner's work by some way.
