Alfred Newman worked on over two hundred and fifty films in his forty year career, received forty-five Academy nominations and won nine Oscars®. This CD features music from “only” ten films, but what a treasure trove is here: well-loved music from well-loved movies. Most of these soundtrack scores are now considered classics - and deservedly so.
Released in cooperation with the Alfred Newman Estate, these historic archival recordings were made between 1947 and 1951. For this special edition, the sources have been remastered to minimize disc-derived noises and other imperfections, resulting in clearer, more dynamic sound and better revealing the brilliance of the composer’s orchestrations.
This program is a testimonial to Newman the great composer and the superb conductor.
