Overview

There's nothing like the grandiose sweep of a good old-fashioned Western score, as this set demonstrates more than adequately. Part of Silva's midline series, Westerns! has a delightful rhythm and pace that harkens to both classical music and the folk music of the frontier; many of the epic Western scores utilized folk songs as an integral element. That said, the album also features quieter moments as well, such as "Claudia's Theme" from Unforgiven, as well as selections from slightly unusual choices, such as A Distant Trumpet. The album is encoded for Dolby Surround and High Density Compatible Digital.
