Amidst all the endless issues and reissues of the standard repertoire, there are still recordings released of the less-than-standard repertoire, of the masses of Ockeghem, of the symphonies of Krauss, and of the songs of Hahn. But of all the projects dedicated to the less-than-standard repertoire, perhaps the most needful and certainly the most interesting is Varese Sarabande's series of recordings of the film scores of Bernard Herrmann. Herrmann's scores are not only supremely effective as soundtracks, but extremely evocative and even deeply moving as pieces of music, and listening to the scores for Vertigo or Citizen Kane is as involving and exciting as listening to the Four Seasons or the 1812 Overture. But in most cases, Herrmann's scores are either recorded only in parts or unrecorded altogether, and it was not until Varese Sarabande began its Herrmann series that many of his complete scores could be heard. This 2002 recording of the complete score of Herrmann's The Day the Earth Stood Still conducted by Joel McNeely is the first recording of all the music for the score -- even the original soundtrack only includes 18 of its 33 cues. And like the previous nine titles in the series, it is magnificent. McNeely and his 30-piece orchestra of brass, percussion, keyboards, and Theremin perform as well and often better than Herrmann's own recording and producer Robert Townson's superlative sound that is far, far better than the sound of the original 1951 recording. The score itself is wonderful: vivid, colorful, terrifying, awe-inspiring, and always and everywhere gripping. For anyone who likes film scores in general, or Herrmann's scores in particular, this disc is mandatory. And for anyone who simply likes great music, this disc will be a welcome relief from the standard repertoire.

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".

Danny Elfman in Ten Albums

From fairy tales to wacky comedies, from the most extraordinary orchestral works to understated pieces, for almost forty years now Danny Elfman has been crafting his unique sound and injecting it into Hollywood productions by the likes of Tim Burton or Gus Van Sant. We look back over ten albums from his career, exploring both his essential works and less well-known compositions.
