I know this is a "Classical Music" NG but many great composers have
written music for films - Honegger, Shostakovich & Vaughn Williams to
name a few. Both Chandos and Naxos have ongoing series devoted to film
scores. I have a number of the Naxos recordings. Of the ones I have
heard my favorites are:
Shostakovich - Hamlet
Benjamin Frankel - Curse of the Werewolf
Honegger - Les Miserables
Not so interesting
Tiomkin Red River
What are your favorites? What about the recent releases?
I don't have any of the Chandos recordings yet.
Anyone care to make some recommendations.
There must be other labels that have put out interesting film music.
