Victor Young's Rio Grande/The Quiet Man/The Sun Shines Bright
28-Nov-2012 - Disques CinéMusique has released three original soundtracks by the phenomenal Victor Young written for John Ford’s movies of the early fifties. Two of them, Rio Grandeand The Quiet Man are remastered versions while the third one, The Sun Shines Bright, appears for the first time on CD. While an earlier DCM release devoted to Young offered exotic scores, this one has an unmistakable American flavor. In some cases the director himself asked Victor Young to integrate some of these melodies into his orchestral scores. In addition to the folk tunes, one can find in the overall program Young’s tendency towards sweet and catchy melodies, but he also provides the expected bold orchestral rises for the action and suspense scenes.
