Premiere 2-CD release of entire original soundtrack from Daniel Mann post-WWII adventure set during 1947-48 formation of State of Israel, starring Sophia Loren, Peter Finch, Jack Hawkins, from Lawrence Durrell story. Concentration camp survivor Judith seeks revenge against former husband who collaborated with Nazis while Arab attack looms in background. Tragedy, romance, location filming all add to color, dramatic impact. Getting spotlight is superb score by Sol Kaplan. One of the strongest orchestral themes in all 1960's film scoring anchors, powerfully launching in minor with sweeping dips into major. Kaplan surrounds stirring melody for Judith with rousing energetic music for Israeli inhabitants of new State. Kaplan scores numerous set pieces in story. Highlights here include "hora theme" that drives much of the action, dynamic music for illegal landing sequence, flavorful music for Damascus, serious-toned Judith's breakdown scene, many others. Tour-de-force tympani writing another asset. Yet no matter how involved Kaplan digs into drama, powerhouse main theme always remains close at hand. Now haunting, now brooding, now passionate, now powerful - always moving. Magnificent music! 68-minute soundtrack plus alternates plays on CD 1, mastered from 1/4" mono masters housed in Sol Kaplan Collection at University of Wyoming, courtesy Paramount Pictures. CD 2 offers original 1966 RCA label re-recorded LP, presented from original stereo album masters preserved in beautiful condition. This RCA album was itself a masterpiece production, incorporating many of the score's highlights in magnificent recording made in London in August 1965, following actual soundtrack sessions. Finish to both soundtrack and re-recording deserves special mention: when respective programs wrap, Kaplan hammers out main theme in powerful fortissimo unison for entire orchestra, brass to the fore. One of the great film score codas! Notes by Jeff Bond illuminate film production, score while dramatic graphic design by Joe Sikoryak offers "flipper" cover with two artwork choices. Sol Kaplan conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain! - INTRADA
