Audio Samples

From the Manufacturer

Kritzerland is proud to present its newest limited edition CD–the original motion picture soundtrack from Topkapi, with a score by Manos Hadjidakis.

Hadjidakis delivered a score filled with wonderful melodies and orchestral colors that matched perfectly the bright candy-colored images on the screen. It's one of those scores that just makes you smile and one that keeps the movie flying along at a wonderful clip.

At the time of the film's release, United Artists released a soundtrack album, both stereo and mono, but the stereo album was really mono–the score was recorded in mono and there were never any stereo masters. For this CD release, we had both the album masters and a set of 15ips session masters–since the latter were a generation better and cleaner than the album masters, we used those to create the CD.

The original LP ran about thirty-two minutes–this new CD runs over forty-five minutes, and the score has been put into film order, which makes for a terrific listening experience. Additionally, we found four cues that weren't used in the film and we've included them as bonus tracks.

Topkapi is a colorful, tuneful, exciting, and delightful score by one of Greece's greatest composers. As the ad copy says–"It's where the jewels are."

This release is limited to 1,000 copies only.
