APOLLO 13
Music Composed and Conducted by JAMES HORNER
INTRADA ISC 415

Intrada kicks off 2019 with a 2-CD set showcasing James Horner's stunning, Oscar-nominated score to the Universal Pictures film Apollo 13. The film was nominated for nine Academy Awards, winning for Best Sound Mixing and Best Film Editing. The film recounts the harrowing true-life story of the Apollo 13 mission that fails when an oxygen tank explodes, crippling the command module en route to the moon. The astronauts and Mission Control desperately team to prevent the capsule from drifting off into space or burning up during reentry. On film, the Apollo 13 team had composer James Horner along for the flight to envelop the audience in the astronauts' dire circumstances and hope for a safe return to earth.

For this tale of quiet nobility and brilliant professionalism, director Ron Howard agreed with Horner not to turn Apollo 13 into an action movie, but convey patriotism and the American spirit instead, giving the score a majestic, sometimes ethereal soul. The main theme is correspondingly elegant, particularly when rendered with virtuosic grace by trumpet soloist Tim Morrison. While the astronauts triumph in what seemed certain disaster, their mission ultimately failed – a juxtaposition Horner musically captures with the haunting vocalise of Scottish singer-songwriter Annie Lennox.

At the time of the film's release, MCA released a concept album featuring period vocals, dialog and portions of Horner's score interspersed throughout. Horner had prepared a 59-minute score-only presentation for release, which was the original intent, before it morphed into the concept album. Nonetheless, MCA pressed up a limited number of promotional copies for Oscar consideration, featuring a black-and-white version of the cover. For this new edition, producer Mike Matessino accessed the 192k 24bit high-resolution transfers of Shawn Murphy’s original mixes on 1/2” tape, with all performance edits meticulously recreated. Disc one features the complete score, with the synthesizer tracks in a suite after the main orchestral program, while disc two recreates the original 59-minute program Horner had originally intended.

so what does this mean - is the film score presented as recorded or has it Been edited to match film (like LOTR complete recordings was)

This is a pretty clever release, separating the atmospheric (and boring) electronic cues from the orchestral ones. And including the promo on disc 2!

So disc two is an ALBUM, created by the composer for an enjoyable listening experience?
Damn! I much prefer a collection of dozens of short cues - each by itself -in film order of course
wink

Did they do the same with the chorus?

Electronic cues are not in the proper chronological order in between the orchestral cues, no sale!

I must say the cover art is...uh....

Especially the one with the spacecraft and the moon. It looks like someone took a black sharpie and scribbled around the edges of the Apollo 13 title. Hmmmm.

I'll wait for the 3-cd presentation with the dialogue score PLUS alternates to the synth cues, 40$

I wasn't planning on ordering this. The score never really grabbed me. As usual Intrada did a fantastic job with the mastering and selection of samples, and enough of them worked for me. Ordered! The Horner expansions are such a blessing, along with their much appreciated choice to separate the electronic tracks.

You didn’t include the “Cosmo...Old Friend” reference appears first in the “Dark Side” cue, not in the cue of the two of them looking out the windows at each other.
