Blast for Star Trek music fans! World premiere 2-CD release of complete soundtrack for sixth feature film in wildly popular Paramount Pictures franchise, directed by Nicholas Meyer, starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley and Oscar-winner Christopher Plummer.
Cliff Eidelman scores for first time in series not with customary fanfare-march approach but with incredibly dark, powerful material, mirroring serious tone of film. Ideas often play in cellos, basses, low brass. Eidelman also displays gift for powerhouse percussion writing. In spotlight as well are aggressive, tour-de-force action cues requiring high degree of player technique, especially from horns, trumpets. Arguably the most challenging Trek score to perform!
Emphasis on darker sonorities notwithstanding, score does allow for bright, energetic theme where appropriate, especially in dynamite finish with cast "Sign Off" and "End Credits" music.
Intrada release, courtesy Universal Music & Paramount Pictures and part of Paramount restoration series of each Trek score, also offers alternates plus both dynamic trailer scores, to date the only original trailer scores recorded for a Star Trek film. Take 10 version with arresting high trumpet triplets is particularly memorable! CD 2 presents original 1991 album with composer's unique musical assembly.
Complete score mastered from Mitsubishi digital 2-track stereo session masters recorded at 20th Century Fox, trailers mixed from 2" 24-track analog masters recorded at Sony Pictures. Lukas Kendall produces, supervises entire project with composer, Neil Bulk edits, Mike Matessino mixes, masters, Jeff Bond scribes authoritative notes. Cliff Eidelman conducts.
