The costs could be lower for Tadlow, if they raised funds through a Kickstarter after James is finished with King of Kings. It would be interesting to see how popular Goldsmith is among film score lovers.

Well, it's not as if it would be the first Goldsmith recording from Tadlow:

At the very least, we know the first volume of Thriller sold well enough for Tadlow to justify producing a second volume...and Intrada recently held a poll that pretty well indicates how popular Goldsmith is among film score lovers too:

As there has been some discussion regarding the performance of the orchestra during the recording of Lionheart and on those synths, I am wondering if there is still an appetite out there for a re-recording?

As there has been some discussion regarding the performance of the orchestra during the recording of Lionheart and on those synths, I am wondering if there is still an appetite out there for a re-recording?Yes, a re-recording would be amazing, but the chances of it happening are realistically next to zero sadly.

My first memory of Lionheart was hearing Goldsmith perform it with the LSO at the Barbican in 1989. A stunning performance early in my Goldsmith journey. I had no idea what the film was, but like others have said, the March (Robert’s Theme) sent shivers down my spine. Probably the best recording of Lionheart is on the Suites and Themes CD which was re-released a few years later by Silva.

I’ve offen wondered why Silva or one of our specialist labels doesn’t try to release some of the Goldsmith concerts on CD. Another recording the BBC must have somewhere is the NPO concert at Air Studios which included the Great Train Robbery and Wild Rovers suites amongst other. (Admittedly the LSO concert had a few flubs but even so.)

I'm not that familiar with the music, especially not the reasons why Goldsmith used the synths so vigorously to fill out the orchestra, but this would a GREAT re-recording, like Rio Conchos, done by the London Symphony Orchestra with possibly the synth parts played by their corresponding orchestral instruments.

I don't know how much the synths are a characteristic of the music but I'd imagine the LSO could level up the virtuosity of playing and make it sound really spectacular!

Love it, but man, would've been so much better with a London or Hollywood orchestra. I can see why Goldsmith stopped recording in Hungary, even with the money it saved. The orchestra was uninspired, and he could never quite get the orchestra/synth mix to sound natural and balanced.

Oddly enough, they did a pretty good job with King Solomon's Mines, a score that was far busier (and, I assume, more difficult from a musician's perspective) than the others. The sound was excessively bright and shrill (all of those recordings were rough), but they kept up with the notes, at least. People dress better for a first date than they do after a few years of marriage, I guess.



LSO would be absolutely breathtaking but I’d be happy even if it was a Tadlow rerecoding. They’ve done brilliantly with other Goldsmith scores.

To my ear, Tadlow recordings are first class and would be difficult to better, even if the budget permitted an LSO recording.

Lionheart: The Epic Symphonic Score was a blind buy for me, so i was pretty surprised, and somewhat disappointed, to hear those 80s synths in an this symphonic score. Hopefully, we get a re-recording one day.

Well, if somebody re-recorded the score, the synthesizers would obviously still be there, as they are a part of the score.
