I can only assume that many have not received their copy yet ? because of the minimal comments regarding this great score.

Just like with Hour of the Gun, it doesn't help that there are so many different threads on QB VII. The Salamander got a lot more posts in fewer threads...

And yes, I haven't yet gotten mine.

I received my copy 3 days ago and have been listening to it endlessly ever since. I always loved the original soundtrack album but it is so amazing to hear the complete score. And the performance by the orchestra and the choir are first class. The musicians in Prague are getting better and better every year.
Thanks everyone involved in this incredible release especially Aaron Purvis for orchestrating the whole score just by listening to it within the TV show. Amazing indeed.

I wish the choice words I wish to say to you wouldn't get me yelled at.

Glad so many people like this release....it was certainly a labour of love by all involved!

Now finishing the mixing on 2 non-Goldsmith re-recordings....but had to pop over to Prague for a few fabulous days of recording VIDEO GAMES LIVE CD with Tommy Tallarico, Emmanuel Fratianni and Laurie Robinson....with the CoPPO and Chorus. A Good time was had by all although for Tommy, Prague is not a great place t be a Vegan who doesn't drink alcohol!!!

James, the 2 non Goldsmith re-recordings are they by any chance Maurice Jarre scores?

Sorry ... not Maurice. I think over the years I have recorded more than enough by my favourite composer for both Silva and Tadlow

That is a shame, I am sure what ever the the 2 re-recordings will be will an instant purchase for me especially if you had any choice in the re-recordings.

Am I correct in assuming that you will not hint what these re-recordings are or when they are expected to be released.

Sorry.....sworn to secrecy about the next 2 scores until mixing and mastering are finished....all I can say is that a complete contrast to Goldsmith?

I can't thank you enough from saving this score from disappearing into obscurity.

Listening to all the music brings home many things that the LP didn't.

First much has been made about how Goldsmith's Jewish antecedents being of immense value to this and particularly MASADA. True, but as I played this my wife commented that it sounded like a courtroom drama. Bingo! Goldsmith was one of the best composer dramatists out there and this IS mainly a courtroom drama. The main fanfare is representative of QBVII, a court where justice is attempted to be attained by sifting through conflicting versions of "the truth". Also that iconic theme was the first time I remembered a strong theme used as a bumper at commercial breaks, creating almost a sense of watching the film in chapters.

There is also a better of sense of another thing Goldsmith was great at, developing themes. Not just bringing them back, as in the bumpers, but having a theme coming back in different guises, evolving like the characters and events do. He was so damn good at that.

I am going back to listen to it some more. I love when there are layers to a composer's work so you can go back and discover something else.

Just listened to this again, and had to post again what a wonderful score and wonderful recording it is. The score just has, for lack of a better word, soul. And the performance captures all of it.

If you don't have this yet, buy it this second!

I agree with Schiffy. Fantastic recording!

And by the way, what has happened to the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra? I used to be disappointed with their performances for being so different, slow, and uninspired. And now, it's like their batting 100%. Is it just the Tadlow projects?

The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra is credited on a huge number of feature films. The Tadlow CD recordings are a very small part of what they do.

I guess I could have been more clear. I used to be very disappointed by the City of Prague's re-recordings, particularly on their compilation CDs. I always felt like their performances were so different, too slow, and uninspired. But the re-recordings they have done with Tadlow have been the opposite. They sound true to the originals, the tempo is good, and they definitely play with a lot of energy.

Is it simply a matter of different goals? That is to say perhaps with Tadlow they're trying to recreate the originals, and with their compilation CDs they're simply playing their own personal take on famous movie themes?

Yes, I'm also LOVING this CD - just a great release in EVERY way!

Thanks to all who got this out to us!!!...:-)

It's James Fitzpatrick that is largely responsible, I suspect. It's not just the Tadlow label; they've simply gotten much better since the 90s. Some of their later Silva recordings are really very good (ie. Rota's Romeo & Juliet).

Part of it is that they've gotten new, better musicians. Part of it is that most of the old musicians got better at performing film music, which takes different skills than playing the same Tchaikovsky and Beethoven symphonies over and over in the concert hall.

I gave a few copies as gifts over the Holidays, each person had diverse tastes in music and they generally found the recording magnificent. I think it is the recording of the year,
