Elmer's Giant Box..!
30-Jul-2006 - More than a month ago Film Score Monthly proudly announced the release of Elmer Bernstein's Filmmusic Collection. From 1974 to 1979 legendary composer Elmer Bernstein financed his own series of classic film score LPs which he distributed through a mail order club. Though a few of the albums were reissued on LP -- and one on CD -- the entire series has long been out-of-print and a "Holy Grail" for film music aficionados. This 12-disc boxed set is the definitive CD presentation of the Film Music Collection. The series features classic scores by Max Steiner, Franz Waxman, Miklos Rozsa, Bernard Herrmann (including the unused Torn Curtain score), Alfred Newman, Alex North, Dimitri Tiomkin, and Bernstein himself (including the sublime To Kill a Mockingbird). The albums were all conducted by Bernstein in England, many with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. For more info and ordering, visit Film Score Monthly.
