Image The Roots of Heaven
A legend in British concert halls, Sir Malcolm Arnold was also in demand as a composer of film music in Hollywood and beyond. Including an overture for the New York première, the score for The Roots of Heaven adds drama and atmosphere to the story of one man's crusade to save African elephants from extinction. David Copperfield was Arnold's last film score and one of his most expressive and memorable, summed up as 'truly amazing' by director Delbert Mann. ClassicsToday.com has described this recording as 'a treat for Arnold fans and movie buffs alike.'

Image Christopher Columbus (Film Score)
After Things to Come, his most famous film score, Arthur Bliss composed the soundtrack scores of CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS and MEN OF TWO WORLDS, two dramatic pictures which are largely forgotten today. Their music, however, enlivened by Spanish and African rhythms respectively, is colourful and interesting enough to be revived in the form of concert suites. Men of Two Worlds contains BARAZA, a miniature concert piece for piano and orchestra (like Addinsell's "Warsaw Concerto" from Dangerous Moonlight, Bax's Oliver Twist, Rózsa's Spellbound and Herrmann's "Concerto Macabre" from Hangover Square), with additional male choir. The three orchestral pieces from SEVEN WAVES AWAY are another real discovery and if anything even more deserving of concert performances than the two earlier scores.

Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra
Mark Fitz-Gerald, conductor

Ernesto Halffter, one of Manuel de Falla's most admired disciples and a student of Stravinsky and Ravel, was a close associate of iconic figures such as Dalí, García Lorca, and Buñuel on the 20th century Iberian cultural scene. His magnificent score for Jacques Feyder's 1926 silent film, Carmen, is one of the great impressionistic Spanish masterpieces of its era. More sombre and tragic than the music for Bizet's opera, Halffter's vivid panorama depicts the range and depth of the powerful emotions encompassed within the Carmen story, a tale of thwarted love, passion, jealousy, and violence set in the heart of Andalusia in southern Spain. This is not only the work's world première recording but the first performance to realise the composer's musical intentions in full.

Image Egyptian, The (Film Score)
The Egyptian had more width and, overall, more depth, than most pseudo-religious epics of the 1950s. Films such as The Prodigal and Land of the Pharaohs certainly matched the grandeur of Fox's adaptation of the popular historical novel by Finnish writer Mika Waltari, but The Egyptian posed a mystical sense that distinguishes it from the usual sand and spear epics.

Both the film and novel are based on one of humankind's oldest tales, the story of Sinhue, an Egyptian wanderer who was a seeker of life's true meaning. Stored in earthen jars and archived by ancient libraries, it was first written on papyrus scrolls that date as far back as 2000 B.C.

Image Jane Eyre
Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra / Adriano

Bernard Herrmann's score for Jane Eyre was completed in 1943. It was his fourth film score and, like The Magnificent Ambersons before it, saw collaboration with Orson Welles. Not only is Jane Eyre Hermann's longest film score, it is one of his most sumptuous, romantic and eerily evocative. He features a marvellous array of sonic effects - high winds, celesta, and muted brass - all designed to deepen and colour the characterisation, and orchestrated with his customary brilliance. This recording of the score restores, for the first time, cuts made during the recording or editing of the original film.

In the late 1970s Adriano established himself as a specialist on Ottorino Respighi and he has conducted many CDs of obscure or neglected symphonic repertoire.

He has also initiated and recorded a series of fifteen CDs mainly of European film music composers.

Image Snows of Kilimanjaro / Five Fingers (Film Scores)
Both The Snows of Kilimanjaro and 5 Fingers date from the years of transition Herrmann faced when the CBS Symphony was disbanded in October 1950. He made the logical choice, which was to settle in Los Angeles and rely on film scoring while he worked to revive his concert career. The film assignments he took were separated by returns to New York, where he wound up his affairs in New York City and began the legwork on the première staging of his opera Wuthering Heights, which he completed during this period. It was a period of high stress and high hopes, and he eagerly anticipated a state of renewed stability that would make possible a return trip to England, where he had encountered a welcoming success as a conductor much stronger than in his own country.

Image Demon de l'Himalaya, Le (Film Music)
"Här är en trevlig återutgivning av några riktiga sällsyntheter, nämligen en god portion av den store, allt för sällan spelade schweizaren Arthur Honeggers tonskapande för filmen. Han skrev faktiskt musik till ett fyrtiotal filmer, de här fyra exemplen härrör alla från 1930-talet. Inte minst fascinerande är musiken till Pierre Chénals filmatisering av Dostojevskijs Brott och straff och Berthold Bartoschs banbrytande, animerade L'Idée. Den senare anses också bjuda på filmmusikhistoriens första användande av ett elektroniskt instrument i form av en ondes martenot, och diggare av det säregna klaviaturinstrumentet får sitt lystmäte även på annat håll på denna cd. Varken framförandena eller inspelningarna från början av 90-talet är några under av förfining, men entusiasten Adrianos kärlek till projektet genomsyrar ändå det hela. Mycket intressant och hörvärt. Världen behöver överhuvudtaget mer av Honegger."
(High Fidelity)

Arthur Honegger, one of the greatest twentieth century composers, made an unrivalled contribution to film music during the course of some thirty years, from his scores for Abel Gance's silent epics La Roue in 1922 and Napoléon in 1926 to his last works of this kind in 1951 - a total of some forty film scores. This recording brings together four scores from the 1930s, beginning with Honegger's own suite from the music he wrote for Marcel Pagnol's 1937 film, REGAIN, a homage to Provence and its country people. This is followed by a suite drawn from the music for Pierre Chénal's 1934 screen dramatisation of Dostoyevsky's great novel, CRIME ET CHÂTIMENT, and two symphonic movements assembled from the score for LE DÉMON DE L'HIMALAYA of 1935. The recording concludes with the complete score provided by Honegger for Bertold Bartosch's 1934 animated picture, L'IDÉE.

Khachaturian's involvement in film, which began in Armenia as early as 1934, was long-lived and highly distinctive. Until 1960, the date of his last film, he wrote principally for Mosfilm and his scores, not least in subsequent arrangements, earned him considerable renown. His own eight-part concert suite arrangement taken from the epic Battle of Stalingrad (1948-50), is a symphonic fresco of high tension, fully befitting its subject matter. The suite derived from the score for Othello reveals the full canvas of Khachaturian's cinematic imagination, from glorious love music to darker scenes of despair.

Han skrev musik till filmer av bl a Krzysztof Kieslowski, Krzysztof Zanussi, Kazimierz Kutz och Andrzej Wajda. Kilar hade skrivit musik till över 100 polska filmer när han fick sitt första uppdrag av en amerikansk filmregissör, nämligen att skriva musik till Bram Stokers "Dracula".

It presents a definitive restoration of Korngold's music for the 1938 Warner Bros.' production of The Adventures of Robin Hood, starring the ultimate swashbuckler, Errol Flynn, and still one of the most-loved of all motion pictures. Throughout - and to an unprecedented degree - Korngold captures its lavish spectacle, romance, colour, pageantry and humour in his magnificent score.

THE SIX MARK TWAIN FILMS IN this recording present a series of exciting challenges in the variety and range of their musical requirements. THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER is set in medieval Austria and contains elements of mysticism and other-worldly dreams. THE INNOCENTS ABROAD takes place in 19th century California, Paris, Genoa, Venice, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Athens, the Crimea and Cairo, with each location calling for characteristic musical backgrounds. PUDD’NHEAD WILSON is a murder drama built around themes of slavery and misidentification. LIFE ON THE MISSISSIPPI evokes the by-gone days of riverboat traffic on the mighty Mississippi. THE PRIVATE HISTORY OF A CAMPAIGN THAT FAILED carries a compelling anti-war message drawn from events in the Civil and Spanish- American Wars. ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is, quite simply, the most famous book in American literature.

Paul Phillips, conductor

American composer and pianist William Perry is credited with playing a significant role in the revival of interest in films of the silent era. As Music Director of the Museum of Modern Art Film Department in New York City, he composed more than a hundred film scores, many of which received international recognition through the Emmy Award-winning television series, The Silent Years, hosted by Orson Welles and Lillian Gish. In this recording, music from Perry's silent film scores has been given full symphonic concert treatment so that a whole new generation can experience the unending flow of melody, the exuberant dance rhythms, the rich orchestral palette and the keen sense of period and style that are characteristic of his writing.

Composer-producer William Perry has played a major role in the revival of interest in silent films, both through his more than one hundred silent film scores and through his Emmy Award-winning television series, The Silent Years, hosted by Orson Welles and Lillian Gish. A rich array of Perry's film music was presented in the critically acclaimed Naxos recording, Music for Great Films of the Silent Era (8.572567). Now this companion volume offers a further view of Perry's colourful and exuberant writing, including his new Silent Film Heroines song-suite for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, celebrating eight of the legendary actresses of the silent cinema. Perry's supremely melodic sense of period and style captures perfectly the romance, grandeur and humour of those entertaining days when 'Movies were movies!'

Sergej Prokofjev var oerhört intresserad av filmmusik. Vid sitt besök i USA 1938 besökta han
Hollywoods filmstudios i syfte att lära sig mer inom detta område. Tillbaka i sitt hemland, Sovjetunionen, fick han omgående tillfälle att praktisera sina nya kunskaper om filmmusik när regissören Sergej Einstein frågade om Projofjev ville sätta musik till filmen "Alexander Nevsky".
Denna film, som hade premiär 1938, handlade om kriget mellan ryssar och germaner på 1200-talet.
I Sovjetunionen blev "Alexander Nevsky" högst aktuell i och med att ett krig med Tyskland vid denna tid syntes oundvikligt. Internationellt hyllades filmen som ett mästerverk.
1939 arrangerade Prokofjev om verket till en kantat som snabbt blev ett av dåtidens mest populära körverk. Ingår på skivan gör även "Pushkiniana", musik till Shakespeares "Hamlet Op 77" och "Ivan the Terrible Op 116".

John Huston's 1956 film of the epic novel Moby Dick by Herman Melville is a
genuine grand movie adventure. Sharing Huston's passion for the sea, Sainton
produced one of the most vibrant "sea scores" ever written, from the shimmering,
rhapsodic depictions of the becalmed ocean to the thrilling and earth-shaking
motif of the whale. Including music which was omitted from the soundtrack, this
recording was widely acclaimed on its original release. Gramophone considered
the score to be "music of richly stocked imagination and uncommonly fertile
resource", and there was also praise from ClassicsToday.com: "Sainton's music
belongs squarely in the tradition of contemporaries such as Finzi, Howells, and
Grace Williams, and anyone who enjoys these composers will find his music
equally appealing ..."

If there's one reigning irony about composer Hans J. Salter, it is that, after fleeing the nightmarish world of the Third Reich in 1937, he wound up in America scoring Universal's classic Frankenstein films, all centered on mad scientists with names like Niemann and Frankenstein and Edelmann, and all revolving around a superhuman brute whose demise lasted only till the next sequel. But if Salter ever truly pondered this irony, he seldom mentioned it. When, shortly before his death in 1994, he was at last asked about it, he only chuckled, thought a moment, then replied: "It must've been written in the stars."

The music for the film The Girlfriends, newly reconstructed from various original sources including the 1934 soundtrack and a number of recently discovered Preludes, and the scores for the stage productions of Salute to Spain and Rule, Britannia!, come from one of the most fertile and brilliant periods of the composer's creative life and are almost completely unknown. The unfinished symphonic movement from 1945, that had lain hidden for more than half a century, turns out to be Shostakovich's first idea for his Ninth Symphony. Described by DSCH Journal as 'one of the indispensable Shostakovich interpreters of our time', Mark Fitz-Gerald adds to his highly acclaimed reconstruction of Shostakovich's music for the 'sound-silent' film Odna (Alone), released on Naxos 8.570316.

This recording of New Babylon, one of Shostakovich's most inventive and truly symphonic film scores, is the first complete recording of all the surviving music from the original 'lost' manuscript full score and the first to use five solo string players only, as conceived by the composer. A remarkable collage of marches, can-cans, carnival music, tumultuous rhythms and musical quotations, New Babylon bristles with witty dissonance and brassy ebullience, emphasizing the film's content rather than its visual surface. Mark Fitz-Gerald's two previous Naxos world première recordings of Shostakovich's film scores for Alone (8.570316) and The Girlfriends (8.572138) have been highly acclaimed.

When we started to record this Max Steiner CD, I felt a sense of relief as the orchestra perked up with enthusiasm. Come to think of it, this happens every time we start a Steiner score, which always makes conducting his music a rewarding experience. More than any other composer in Hollywood, Steiner had a way of composing through scenes effortlessly with every note perfectly placed. The way in which he smoothly utilized memorable themes throughout his scores was unmatched. Steiner was easily the best composer who could mimic the action on the screen, yet still keep it musical. Even in the 1930s and '40s, this was hard to do and not sound comical in some way. All of these elements make it interesting for the orchestra and me because the cues don't sound like background music, but rather mini concert pieces strung together.

I love to see smiles of recognition come over the faces of the orchestra as we start a new score. Believe it or not, a lot of the musicians in Russia are familiar with Max's music as more of our American movies are showing up on their television. I often hear noodling on Steiner themes from other films when they recognize his style. During rest periods for the orchestra, I heard various players quote from Gone With the Wind, King Kong, and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, always with a wink and a smile.

'I find it particularly gratifying to reconstruct music – and for full symphony orchestra – from this early period of sound film. For one thing, the original music tracks for The Son of Kong and The Most Dangerous Game no longer exist; beyond that, owing to limited orchestra size and archaic sound recording of the period, this music has never, until now, been heard with all the thrilling detail and rich dynamics Max Steiner originally envisioned.'

Image Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The (Film Score)
Four basic periods mark Max Steiner's long film-composing career. The first period covered his RKO, Selznick and Warner years through 1937. These were the experimental and innovative years when film music came into its own as an American art form. The RKO years offered comparatively little reward or recognition (each King Kong or She or The Most Dangerous Game was matched by twenty minimally scored potboilers) and the Selznick years offered innumerable headaches. At Warners, starting with The Charge of the Light Brigade in 1936, Steiner achieved recognition and autonomy and he composed for the studio, though not exclusively, till his retirement in 1965.

Max's success as a supremely versatile composer may have contributed to the somewhat tarnished reputation attached to his music for The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, for how can one so adept at scoring so many diverse genres possibly excel at composing for any one of them! At the time of the picture's release the score was universally hailed, earning Max the Vienna Cinema Exhibition Award. While he did receive an Oscar nomination that year, it was for Johnny Belinda (an Academy loss that Max deeply regretted). However, as Sierra Madre has garnered praise as a cinema masterpiece, some critics have complained that Max's full-blown musical accompaniment is intrusive and detracts from the otherwise "realistic" style of the film. Others (including Steiner's former orchestrator Hugo Friedhofer) have charged the music is of "Spanish" rather than "Mexican" character.

Image Plow that Broke the Plains / The River (Film Score
Pare Lorentz’s The Plow that Broke the Plains (1936) and The River (1937) are landmark American documentary films.* Aesthetically, they break new ground in seamlessly marrying pictorial imagery, symphonic music, and poetic free verse, all realized with supreme artistry. Ideologically, they indelibly encapsulate the strivings of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal’. Virgil Thomson’s scores for both films are among the most famous ever composed for the movies. Aaron Copland praised the music for The Plow for its “frankness and openness of feeling”, calling it “fresher, more simple, and more personal” than the Hollywood norm. He called the music for The River “a lesson in how to treat Americana”.

Ralph Vaughan Williams composed in a wide variety of genres, and film music became a significant part of his output in the latter decades of a long and distinguished career. He viewed film scores as more than just ephemera, seeking to “intensify the spirit of the whole” in wartime productions such as the defiantly ant-Nazi 49th Parallel and Coastal Command, in which the graceful romance of sea-planes sends the spirits soaring. The haunting and evocative atmosphere of The Flemish Farm contrasts with Three Portraits that evoke the first Elizabethan age and announce the springtime of the second.

Image Objective, Burma! (Film Score)
"Now on Naxos, here is Waxman's splendid music for Raoul Walsh's 1945 World War II epic Objective Burma, a film that starred Erroll Flynn. John Morgan painstakingly restored sequences that were cut from the final print or for which no full scores survive. The music cues add up to a 71-minute suite that's played in sequence, without interruption. Hearing these cues minus their visual context allows us to fully focus on Waxman's resourceful orchestral palate and sweeping melodies that never cloy. Even Waxman's mandatory Orientalisms are cliché-resistant, and are scored with tasteful restraint. Waxman's jaunty main title theme emerges time and again in various shapes and emotional guises, amid more foreboding sequences like "At Night", with its serpentine bass clarinet, spooky muted trombones, and eerie string harmonics. Notable too is Waxman's haunting use of eight solo cellos during the cue "Jacob's Death". William Stromberg leads the Moscow Symphony Orchestra with his usual enthusiasm and loving care. Buy this disc, read the synopsis, sit back, listen, and allow the music to create a movie in your mind."

Victor Young was one of Hollywood's busiest and most esteemed film composers, his upbeat and engaging style ensuring that viewers left the cinema with a catchy tune in their ears. His lively circus march captures the spirit of The Greatest Show on Earth, and his Broadway-cum-Rachmaninov and eerie score for The Uninvited with its hit tune Stella by Starlight was pivotal to arguably the best Hollywood ghost story ever produced. The animated Gulliver's Travels relied heavily for its charm and dramatic impact on Young's fabulous orchestrations, while the tobacco dynasty drama Bright Leaf inspired one of his most restrained and thoughtful film scores.

As the 20th century approached, a new art form was developed, one that would go on to dominate the next hundred years. Though cinema began in silence, it quickly acquired sound and attracted musicians and composers. The new medium demanded a new approach, both aesthetically and technologically, but these problems were overcome remarkably quickly, allowing film composition to develop into a sophisticated branch of music-drama. This booklet-and-CD set outlines the history of film music, introduces some of the major characters, and shows how their music works in the context of film.

Image Third Man (The) - And Other Classic Film Themes
It could be said that cinemagoers were in for two surprises back in 1949 as they took their seats for Carol Reed's much publicised film noir The Third Man. Firstly Orson Welles, the actor many assumed to be the star, only appeared towards the end of the film; and secondly the action on screen was not accompanied by the usual orchestral score, but by a then unknown musician playing a zither. It was not the first time, nor the last, that the music score for a film was dominated by just one instrument, but rarely has the final effect been as dramatic as the zither playing of Anton Karas (1906-1985). The film's action was based in post-war Vienna, a city where Karas had apparently been discovered by Reed playing his zither in a café. It changed his life, and made him an international celebrity. The 78 of the film's theme sold over half a million copies within a few months of its release, and a radio series in 1951 was eventually followed by 77 BBC television films starring Michael Rennie from 1959 onwards-all earning extra royalties for the fortunate composer who later confessed that he had written the main theme about fifteen years earlier, and forgotten about it. The bomb ravaged streets of Vienna are replaced by a similar backdrop in the second British film in this collection. Passport to Pimlico (also from 1949) brilliantly tapped into the resigned mood of the people who were tired of years of rationing and austerity. The residents of the London suburb of Pimlico discover from an old deed that they are not part of England but Burgundy, and promptly declare themselves independent. The British Government puts Pimlico under siege, and French composer Georges Auric (1899-1983) cleverly captures the defiant mood of the Burgundians and their battle to retain their new-found freedom. Vienna is again the setting in the 1950 French film La Ronde, but the story takes place in 1900 when life was far more civilised and quite complicated-if the twists and turns in the plot are to be believed. The main theme was also known as "Love's Roundabout". It's back to 1949 for the next three films, all from British studios but very different in content. The Romantic Age did not create much interest at the box office, but the music by Charles Williams (1893-1978) became one of the composer's most unexpected successes. He had already caught the public's attention with his "Dream of Olwen" (from the film While I Live) but his theme entitled "Jealous Lover" was picked eleven years later for the title music in the Jack Lemmon movie The Apartment, topping the US charts. There are echoes of Passport to Pimlico in the film Whisky Galore, where the misery of post-war austerity is relieved by the shipwreck of a cargo of whisky, which quickly vanishes off the Scottish beaches. Again Georges Auric provided the perfect score. The legendary Italian composer Nino Rota (1911-1979) had already been employed by British studios before his own country's film industry commissioned him to conjure up the music for some of its finest creations. There are hints of what was to follow in his score for The Glass Mountain. London-born Benjamin Frankel (1906-1973) is today remembered more for some of his serious works (he composed eight symphonies between 1958 and 1972), although his name first became noticed through several of his film scores, including The Importance of Being Earnest. In total he worked on over eighty feature films and documentaries, plus television plays and theatrical productions. The French film Jeux Interdits was well received following its release in 1952, although some critics suggest that its original charm has not entirely survived the passage of time. However it did win an Oscar, and the traditional music arranged and performed by Narciso Yepes (1927-1997) seemed to underline the anti-war message. Nino Rota scored the 1951 Italian film Anna, but he did not write the two songs which have outlasted the film's original appeal, largely due to the star Silvana Mangano. Her singing voice was dubbed by Flo Sandons (who won the San Remo Festival in 1953), and "Non Dimenticar" helped establish Nat 'King' Cole as a leading singer of ballads. The lush arrangement by Percy Faith (1908-1976) reveals the tender beauty in this melody. Whoever decided that a hissing, temperamental and generally discordant vintage motor car had any similarity with the harmonica was certainly blessed with a flash of inspiration. Just about everyone will have tried to play the harmonica (the posh name for the mouth organ) at some time-often to the discomfort of friends and family. Few could master its intricacies and nuances to the extent of Larry Adler (1914- 2001) who hailed from Baltimore. The film Genevieve was an instant success, partly due to Adler's soundtrack which fitted the action so perfectly. The musical director was Muir Mathieson (there were a few non-harmonica sequences) and the music was nominated for an Oscar. But when the film was shown in the United States Larry Adler's name was missing from the credits: he had been blacklisted following false accusations of communist sympathies, and moved to Britain in 1949 where he lived for the rest of his life. Bruce Montgomery (1921-1978) wrote concert music and the scores for almost fifty feature films, including some of the most enduring British comedies of the twentieth century. Before getting involved with high profile productions such as the Doctor In The House and Carry On series, he had demonstrated in what seems to be his first feature film The Kidnappers (1953) that he could create a most competent score. His undoubted skills prompted numerous offers of work to the extent that, by the 1960s, his health began to suffer. Perhaps he was his own worst enemy, because he also had a second career under the pseudonym Edmund Crispin as a successful author of detective novels and other works. Nino Rota returns as the composer of one of the most notable Italian film themes of the 1950s. Federico Fellini starred his wife Giulietta Masina alongside Anthony Quinn (to ensure foreign distribution) in La Strada, which won the Oscar as the best foreign film of 1956, although it had been released two years earlier. One of the memorable images was Masina (as Gelsomina) playing the main tune on a trumpet, although it lost its original rather plaintive style in many of the recordings by numerous orchestras around the world (including the great David Rose (1910-1990) in this collection), sometimes appearing under the title "Stars Shine In Your Eyes". The Franco/Italian film Touchez Pas au Grisbi literally means "Don't Touch The Cash", but when distributed internationally it also went under the titles "Honour Among Thieves" and the rather crude "Hands Off The Loot". It had a haunting theme composed by Jean Wiener (1896-1982) who, from 1932 onwards, had worked on more than 300 films, having originally gained fame in Europe as part of the 'Wiener et Doucet' piano duo with Clément Doucet. There were several orchestral versions available, but the public warmed to Larry Adler's performance on his harmonica, which seemed just right for the slightly mysterious melody. The film Summertime (also known as "Summer Madness") starred Katharine Hepburn and Rossano Brazzi, and it was set in Venice so it could hardly fail to produce a feel-good factor among the audience. Experienced Italian film composer Alessandro Cicognini (1906-1995) produced a suitably romantic score, and in the process provided the mid-1950s with a popular song that went around the world. Another Franco/Italian production completes this collection. French Can Can was a predictable story about the famous French dance that our ancestors once believed to be rather 'saucy'. The beauty of Paris in a bygone age, and the chance to hear and see Edith Piaf in glorious Technicolor, should ensure that this film does not di

Pietro Mascagni's single work for the early days of cinema was composed in winter time 1914/15. The idea of the film director Nino Oxilia was to create a "Poema cine-musicale", a synthesis of the arts with music, poetry and finally cinematography. The plot is something like a female version of "Faust", based on a poetry by Fausto Maria Martini. Mascagni itself conducted the first performance in July 1917 and orientated his composition near to Richard Wagners musical language. The French-German TV channel Arte restored this treasure of early cinema in 2006 and recorded the complete film music score which is now available also on CD.

IVAN THE TERRIBLE – the second joint project of Sergei Eisenstein and Sergei Prokofiev – is, much like ALEXANDER NEWSKI, a historical epic, portraying the rise and fall of the autocratic ruler Ivan IV in the 16th century. Sergei Prokofiev’s musical portrayal is unique in film history, for the score conceives both parts of the film on an epic scale. Prokofiev’s rich melodic invention thrives on the expressive sound palette of his native Russia, mostly as they echo the spiritual works of the Russian-orthodox liturgy.

Alfred Schnittke as a composer of film music - that is a fact well known to anyone who has ever been concerned with Alfred Schnittke. However, only very few people are familiar with his actual work in the film music genre. This is all the more surprising since on the one hand, Alfred Schnittke wrote more than 60 film scores during the years between 1961 and 1984, and on the other hand, his poly-stylistic techniques found a nearly perfect equivalent in film. Since Alfred Schnittke suffered from the artistic regimentations like many contemporary composers in the USSR, and his works could often only be performed under difficult circumstances, his work for the film to a large extent contributed to his livelihood.

ALFRED SCHNITTKE's work as a soundtrack composer - this fact is known to everyone acquainted with Schnittke's oeuvre. Nevertheless, not many have knowledge of the fact that between 1961 and 1984 he composed as many as 60 soundtracks. His polystilistic arrangements were perfectly suited for movies. Schnittke was, as well as many of his colleagues, bound to Sovjet Union's artistic restraints, which made rehearsing a difficult matter; though, much of his substistence came from this job in the film industry. Composing soundtracks was for Schnittke the means of expression of his artistic views, and thus he can be named in a line with Shostakowitch, Prokofiev and Chatchaturian. Since many years Schmittke's Widow Irina, publisher Hans Sikorski and director and soundtrack expert Frank Strobel devote themselves to the composer's hand-written scores. A great number of these have already been gathered and taken from Moscow archives to Germany. Schnittke was desirous of giving life to his compositions in a concert hall. With Frank Strobel it was possible to meet Schmittkes desire; a number of concert suites have already been collected and arranged for this purpose. The present SACD is the fourth album out of a series of soundtracks by Schnittke to be released by Capriccio.
