A fantastic collection of Tiomkin's music that's very well performed and captured. Highly recommended!
LSO play Tiomkin gold
As a big fan of film I thought that this CD was absolutely brilliant!! It’s such a shame that modern film music seems to be losing its ability to stand up as a piece of art on its own, and yet through this recording we are reminded that film scores do indeed have the potential to be real masterpieces! Thank God for the LSO who always seem to know what they’re doing when it comes to performing a good film score (remember Star Wars and Harry Potter!) and their collaboration here with London Voices is just spectacular. Listening to this recording really does just export you straight back to the Golden Age of cinema and the performances from absolutely everybody, soloists, choir and orchestra, really do the original Tiomkin film scores justice! An absolutely excellent recording - Andrew Playfoot’s performance of ‘Rawhide’ is particularly addictive!
