Notes & Reviews:

This new recording by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra focuses on the much-loved film soundtracks from iconic movies such as Rear Window, The Lost Weekend, A Fistful Of Dollars, Shane, Key Largo, Walk On The Wild Side, Never On Sunday, Chinatown, Wuthering Heights and A Passage To India - many of which were multi-Academy Award winners. With a huge 85-piece orchestra (including multiple harps and pianos) this disc is a celebration of an era when a film's orchestral soundtrack was integral to its success.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The program concludes with a "Ballad" fashioned by Palmer from Dimitri Tiomkin's Gunfight at the OK Corral that comes off better than I expected. All the performers are on their toes, and the sonics are unimpeachable.
