Alfred Newman/Bernard Herrmann The Egyptian: The Deluxe Edition
10-Jul-2011 - In 1990, Varèse Sarabande released a CD of the only score album of The Egyptian that had ever represented the historic collaboration between Alfred Newman and Bernard Herrmann, but this was a studio recording done concurrently with the film's theatrical release. In 1998, conductor William T. Stromberg recorded a 71:00 album of music from The Egyptian with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. In 2001, Film Score Monthly released a 72:00 CD of the music that had survived from the original film sessions. Now, finally, and for the very first time, Varèse Sarabande is thrilled to present the complete score from The Egyptian, adding more than 30:00 of previously-believed-lost music plus a selection of never-before-heard alternate cue variations. Taking advantage of both new mixing technologies and also a newly discovered source for the original music masters, there now is an Egyptian for the ages. This 2 CD-set is limited to 1500 copies.
Available from Varèse Sarabande and from Colosseum Records (for Europe).
