The Watcher Varese 66181 15.99
(45:00 or 60:10?) Exciting orchestral (and techno-rhythmic) thriller
score with an emphasis on strings, percussion and trombones. Strong
score. Odd running time reflects a lengthy 14 minutes of silence
followed by ten seconds of hidden music.
Into The Arms Of Strangers CHA 1006 16.99
(42:30) Holocaust documentary gets sensitive, haunting score featuring
strings, woodwinds and piano. 28 minutes of score unevenly padded with
numerous children's songs.
Lo Strano Vizio Della Signora Wardh
HCD-SF01 (Italy) 19.99
(48:52) -Limited Edition- 1970 Italian horror movie score makes world
premier on album. Piano, strings, organ, wordless chorus and rhythm
section combine for music in equal parts pretty, lightly upbeat,
quasi-religious and dissonant.
Urban Legends: Final Cut Varese 66179 15.99
(73:23) Ottman gives his own movie a large orchestral score, heavy on
suspense and aggressive action music. Delicate theme for Amy a
standout. Strong score but a long ride.
Victory At Sea QR 92918 11.99
(68:34) Lengthy compilation from 3 famous RCA albums with orchestrator
Robert Russell Bennett and the RCA Victor Symphony. Stunning stereo
sound. Rodgers score has sweeping melodies, underscoring turbulent sea
battles, tragic defeats, rousing victories. Classic television music.
Jaws Varese 66078 (Cond Joel McNeely) 15.99
(51:09) Anti-climactic release of legendary score, now interpreted by
Joel McNeely and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
