The sound and performances of the Velazquez Concert Suites was very good. Bodes well for this new release.

I had the original bootleg LP back in the 1970's, and didn't care for the score. Decades later, I learned that the BRIDE portion of the LP had been recorded at the wrong speed!

This is good news. I hope that Herrmann's ENDLESS NIGHT will be considered for a future rerecording.

Thanks Quartet! smile

Yes, a NEW recording. I hope this sells very well and Quartet will do more new recordings of scores that seem lost. Please support this wonderful release! smile

lease support this wonderful release! smile

Of course! smile

Yavar, I think I was too much in the grip of Snoopy levels of mania when I read this news. I can't believe how fantastic this is. It's about time.

Would love a full Ghost and Mrs. Muir recording as well. I know, too early!

Understandable! All the survives of the original recording though was released on a short EP (reissued on CD by Kritzerland many years ago) and more recently on a Twilight Time isolated score track -- but only a Music & Effects track was available for the latter.

Ghost and Mrs. Muir might be my second favorite Herrmann after Mysterious Island, but since I have two good recordings of it I think I'd prioritize a premiere recording of Endless Night (which is otherwise completely lost, and the only Herrmann score to go completely unrepresented on any album):


But yeah, a complete Ghost and Mrs. Muir in modern sound would indeed be lovely.

ENDLESS NIGHT is the most pressing need. It is just about the only Herrmann score to have never been available on LP or CD, not even in suite form. Ditto COMPANIONS IN NIGHTMARE.

This is a great surprise!

What's mystifying is if Herrmann's score is fully orchestrated, why would it need to be reconstructed?

The musicians need parts that they can read...

I know one doesn't equate to the success of the other, but I'm very excited by this news as Velázquez' new recording with the BNO of his own THE ORPHANAGE score was such a triumph. The samples sound excellent.

Using the word 'reconstructed' in such a case seems weird. If the music is all there already it just needs to be copied and edited.

... and orchestrated. That's the reconstruction part.
In most cases, only the composers sheet music is preserved. Someone like Leigh Phillips of Tadlow wll do a better job at explaining this, since this is how he makes some of his living with.


As for me, I had stopped hoping for this title! It's been on my wish list for 25 years at least.
It even has the infamous "The Scarf" cue! big grin

Why infamous? Truffaut had asked for a light melody, in the style of Vivaldi but... BH had other ideas. smile

When Truffaut heard BH's cue, he simply ignored it and put... some Vivaldi.

Truffaut really disliked working with BH, and never did again.

I've ordered it by DHL express. I hope to receive before the end of the week! big grin

The latter should come at some point, tapes sound great.
