I just listened to this score AGAIN and I have to say that is grabs you the moment it begins - that first track is amazing and only makes you want more. This is becoming one of my faves!

Sweet smile

What did you think of the other 2 scores in the set, have you had a chance
to listen - or still wrapped up in that Scarlet greatness? ;-)

Hi Sean,

I must admit I am still wrapped in that Scarelt greatness! I am going to try and listen to the other 2 tomorrow. It's gonna be hard though! smile

Neat - I hope you enjoy the others too, but for my money, Scarlet is the big draw here.

Natty McGann is my second fave of the set. Scored like a western at times (did Elmer know any other way?).
If you like his 'cowie' music edwz, you will love it.
I haven't really played Gangs that much myself, maybe only played it fully the once. I must go back to it.
Glad my wake up post spread some more love for this wondrous set.

Just received this set and listening to this now.

Oh. My...

What an absolutely stunningly beautiful score this is. This was rejected ? Unbelievable.
The set was worth it for this score alone before I even get to Gangs or Natty Gan.

Ah, one of my favorite Bernstein's! Such a gorgeous and unique score. I created a 10 min. suite a while back which you can find here:

I have no idea why I omitted that AMAZING action cut near the end of the score, "Battle". I think there might have been a 10 min. max for videos back then still. I've subsequently rectified that for my own listening pleasure of course...

Just a stunning score!!!
Pure emotion from start to finish.
I expect this will become my all time number 1 favourite score by EB eventually...the more I hear it.

Yup, still a Bernstein favorite for me as well. "Lovemaking" has to be one of the ravishing things he ever wrote.

It's a creative, colorful, sprawling work loaded with great ideas and memorable sonorities.

It's funny to contrast this with John Barry's replacement score - Hearing Barry go through the tired and predictable motions paramount in his music at this time, whereas Bernstein's has the vitality, flourishing creativity and sonorous abundance of a "young" composer eager to introduce his chops to the world.

Now THAT is how a truly great composer does it.

If I have but one complaint, it's that there's no end title cue. But that'd just have been gravy, given everything that proceeded it!
