Korngold: The Adventures of Robin Hood [DVD Audio]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
Rare indeed is the film score that can make for an enjoyable listening experience in its entirety without the images it was composed to accompany -- and even by listeners who've never seen the original film. But Erich Wolfgang Korngold's classic scores for Warner Bros. in the 1930s and '40s are an exception to the rule, and none is more satisfying than The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), for which the composer won his second Academy Award. Of course, Korngold's genius for matching music to image can be best appreciated by viewing the Technicolor epic (directed by Michael Curtiz of Casablanca fame and also available in a special DVD edition). But on its own, Korngold's ...

Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
Rare indeed is the film score that can make for an enjoyable listening experience in its entirety without the images it was composed to accompany -- and even by listeners who've never seen the original film. But Erich Wolfgang Korngold's classic scores for Warner Bros. in the 1930s and '40s are an exception to the rule, and none is more satisfying than The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), for which the composer won his second Academy Award. Of course, Korngold's genius for matching music to image can be best appreciated by viewing the Technicolor epic (directed by Michael Curtiz of Casablanca fame and also available in a special DVD edition). But on its own, Korngold's complete Robin Hood music comprises a 78-minute symphonic poem, rich in dramatic incident and lush orchestration: It's no exaggeration to compare its compelling narrative and musical integration to a Richard Strauss tone poem. From the vigorous fight scenes and the regal pageantry of "The Tournament" to the luscious "Love Scene" for Robin and Maid Marian (portrayed in the film by swashbuckling hero Errol Flynn and his frequent on-screen romantic interest Olivia de Haviland), Korngold's memorable music is vivid, emotionally fitting, and entirely delightful. The Marco Polo label's Classic Film Music Series, featuring painstaking reconstructions by John Morgan and the nimble conducting of William Stromberg, has been shedding light on neglected scores (especially the genre-defining ones of Max Steiner) for a decade now, and has set a high standard for the field. The addition of Robin Hood to their catalogue is a major event, inspiring the hope that they will soon produce complete editions of more of Korngold's major scores.
Gramophone - Andrew Achenbach
The Moscow SO respond with skill and enthusiasm to William Stromberg’s affectionate lead.... Korngold fans and film music buffs will have a field-day here, and Marco Polo’s extensive and authoritative presentation leaves nothing to be desired.
