    It's very Hermannesque wink

    I've only heard it in the film, not bad at all from what I remember in my vague memory.

  2. I am assuming that it is simiilar to the music used in It's Alive 2. I am curious to hear how similar they are.

  3. Here's the first part of the film -- I skimmed threw it quickly, only here score in the opening -- didn't care for it; hope the rest is different:

  4. How's the score album for Taxi Driver?

    I'm talking about this one.

    Good sound? Cues in film order or not? Is it a satisfying listen?

    I've watched the film and thought it the music was extremely effective, very appropriate for the scenes.

    But does it work as a standalone listen? I'm asking this because I know nothing of Herrmann really, and maybe this could become my first purchase. I have to order something else with Star Trek, you see?

    It's a brilliant score! One of the all time great jazz themes and incredible underscore, love it love it love it!

  5. I would certainly recommend it. Very evocative of the film as well as being a great jazzy listen.

    Based on the sound clips alone this could give Star Trek: The Motion Picture a run for its money as film score re-release of the year!

    NORTH BY NORTHWEST

    Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 207
    Date: 1959
    Tracks: 28
    Time = 69:17

    At long last! Oft-recorded Bernard Herrmann masterpiece finally gets complete release in dynamic stereo from new masters! Previous release on Rhino label was spectacular album, albeit several major set pieces (including main title & climactic Mount Rushmore sequence) were transferred from damaged elements, all that was then available. Thanks to Warner Bros., new stereo mixes have been made available for first time ever, revealing spectacular sonics (for 1959) and illuminating new details of magnificent score never before captured. While score has also been digitally re-recorded twice under different conductors, neither version can match crisp, exciting performance of MGM Studio musicians under baton of Herrmann himself. Hear harp arpeggios, castenets, wood blocks, snare drums like never before. Get entire climax with punch of bass trombone, thrilling trumpets amidst swirling variety of tempos that keep tension, excitement of Hitchcock's incredible action set-piece moving at fierce pace. Alfred Hitchcock's brilliant film stars Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, young Martin Landau and is regarded as one of director's greatest achievements. Crop-dusting scene, Mount Rushmore climax are movie icons. Romance between Grant, Saint is heartfelt, all the more so with Herrmann's tender love theme for strings. Composer is also major part of excitement, suspense of wild tale. Under loving guidance of Neil Bulk & Lukas Kendall, Herrmann's score comes home at last not only with best sound possible but also with first-ever reproduction of original MGM artwork campaign, color stills, informative notes by Frank De Walk, complete cue assembly details plus musician's list. The final word on North By Northwest! Bernard Herrmann conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remains.

    I hope it sells well but I really don't need another North By Northwest, a great score but not one I play as regularly as other Herrmann classics.

  7. A definite buy for me when I get home. Herrmann's original is a must even with several excellent re-recordings available.

    Concert rapport up:

    I am extremely serious.

  8. Concert review?

    Constrained by the limits of Google Translate, I enjoyed the jist of your review Thor. Herrmann's always a joy to hear live - for me it's not just about the music, it's also about trying to fathom the various orchestrations that affect the make-up of the orchestra as well as seeing if the orchestra is "up to the mark" for playing Herrmann.

    I should mention though that the image of the skeletons is from Jason and The Argonauts and not The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. But then this may have been pointed out to you already.

    Concert review, yes! Good that Google Translate allowed you to get the gist of it, at the very least, even though the English comes off as bizarre now and then.

    Thanks for the correction. I hadn't realized that.
