Album Remarks & Appraisals:

These historic recordings are a superb collection of some of the greatest tunes from Hollywood, composed during the Golden Age of Cinema and affording nearly three hours of nostalgic indulgence. The compilation focuses on key figures of the early film composer generation, among them Max Steiner, Franz Waxman and Eric Korngold. From the deeply lush harmonies of Gone with the Wind, to the Wagnerian forces employed to evocative effect in The Bride of Frankenstein, these composers were masters of their art who knew how to wield a good tune out of the dramatic developments on screen.
