Audio Samples

From the Manufacturer

The score for Desiree was composed by the incomparable Alex North. North's knack for coming up with the most heart wrenching and poignant melodies is on grand display here. Desiree is of strikingly different character than North's other historical epics. This is, by far, the most intimate of them. North's score also features a wonderful waltz by Fox music head, Alfred Newman.

As one of the most important composers to ever work in Hollywood, every score on North's filmography represents an essential piece of film music history. We are thrilled to finally add Desiree to our long-standing and continuing series of Alex North restorations and preservations.
