Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Who on this planet has never seen KING KONG and heard Max Steiner's powerful innovative music more than once? Here's a treasure trove of classic scary music that these 20th Century composers gave their best and probably never thought would ever be heard again and especially newly recorded! Film fans and scholars in every future century will continue to discover and study this music art form and give the composers their unexpected and rightful immortality! - Craig Spaulding, Screen Archives Entertainment

Art Times
The program notes for all of Naxos sets are excellent. And having seen these films will one help appreciate the scores all the more.

Album Notes

Naxos' six-CD box set Monster Music! is a collection of classic horror film soundtracks that have been re-created for the digital age in recordings by conductors William Stromberg, Carl Davis, and Antoni Wit. The films evoked in this package are King Kong and House of Frankenstein (each represented by their complete scores), with selections from Bram Stoker's Dracula, Curse of the Werewolf, Son of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man, and a handful of less famous titles. The restorations and reconstructions by John Morgan preserve the music that gave these movies their emotional power and more than a few of their chills. If one composer dominates this set, it is the celebrated Max Steiner, whose musical contributions to King Kong, Son of Kong, and The Most Dangerous Game should be instantly recognized by film buffs. The set also includes scores by Hans J. Salter, Paul Dessau, Frank Skinner, Benjamin Frankel, and Wojciech Kilar, who is best known for his atmospheric music for Stoker's Dracula. The performances by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra give vivid impressions that retain the energy and color of the originals. Naxos provides its customary fine sound, and though there is some variability between the different performances, which were recorded between 1994 and 2005, the set is quite consistent in audio quality.
