Audio Samples

From the Manufacturer

It seems so fitting to honor Alex North's masterful score for Viva Zapata! on Oscar night. What a shame that the Oscars themselves didn't feel the same way back in 1953! Viva Zapata! is, without a doubt, one of the great scores of all time. The rhythms are explosive. The melodies are heartbreaking. Viva Zapata! was one of Jerry Goldsmith's favorite film scores. Goldsmith even conducted his own recording of the score, (as did Elmer Bernstein!) We are ecstatic about offering the world premiere release of the original motion picture soundtrack from Viva Zapata!, conducted by the legendary Alfred Newman and composed by the incomparable Alex North.

As if that's not enough, we have filled out the CD with another Alex North premiere. The 13th Letter is a 1951 film noir directed by Otto Preminger. North's score is brimming with invention. If you don't know this score (and we think that it's a safe assumption that you don't), you have a great film music discovery ahead of you.

Archival soundtrack releases just don't come any better or more important than this one!
