Elmer Bernstein is one of the world most talented movie music composer.

Every one will remind music he heard before without knowing it has been composed by Elmer Bernstein.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!! Aug. 31 2005
By Richard J. Guhl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This superb collection of Bernstein's film music only lacks the title theme from "Spies Like Us" to rate all 5 stars. I have been looking for soundtrack music from "Zulu Dawn" in general, and the "River Crossing" specifically, since 1987. That selection alone is worth the price of the 2 disc set.

5.0 out of 5 stars "his music left an impression on all of us ~ Mr. Bernstein" June 7 2005
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, National Youth Jazz Orchestra, Daniel Caine Orchestra and Crouch End Festival Chorus (Choir Master: David Temple) performs the gems by composer ELMER BERNSTEIN...conducted by Paul Bateman, Daniel Caine, James Fitzpatrick and Nic Raine, this latest release "The Essential Elmer Bernstein Film Music Collection", has all the rhythmically dynamic and poetic scores ever conceived...Bernstein's music remains in your mind with haunting and forbidding themes that will stay with you the rest of your days...sought after Bernstein career selections and World Premier Debut Recordings give this package an A Plus!

Disc One...Bernstein has the ability to capture the moment from each cue within his scores, examples are in alphabetical order:

AGE OF INNOCENCE (End Titles)

AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (World Premier Debut Recording)

BUCCANEER (Overture)

COMANCHEROS

GHOST BUSTERS

HEAVY METAL (Taarna's Theme)

HOLLYWOOD AND THE STARS

JOHNNY STACCATO (seldom recorded or heard)

MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

TRUE GRIT (Rooster Cogburn/A Warm Wrap-Up)

WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

ZULU DAWN (River Crossing)

Disc Two...music flows in the air and the tapestry is fine and the weave is just right...in alphabetical order:

AIRPLANE (World Premier Debut Recording)

BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ (Finale) (World Premier Debut Recording)

BRIDGE AT REMAGEN

FAR FROM HEAVEN

GREAT ESCAPE

HALLELUJAH TRAIL (Overture)

HAWAII (Overture)

MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM

SHOOTISTS (Main Title)

SONS OF KATIE ELDER

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (Overture)

THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE (Sky-Hi) (World Premier Debut Recording)

Listen and recall the scores which have crossed our path...one has only to close their eyes and visualize the characters that came to life on the big screen...the music of Elmer Bernstein was a very large part of the cinema...sit back and soak up each passage and cue that prevails.

Silva Screen Records and James Fitzpatrick (producer), Rick Clark (NYJO tracks), Reynold da Silva (executive producer)...please stand up and take a bow for the well deserved rare gems you've given us...a tribute compilation dedicated to the memory of Elmer Bernstein (1922 to 2004)...this can only be one of the most sought after collections for any "film-score-buff"...speaking for myself and some of my movie music collector comrades...this is a keeper!

By Bruce N. Hutchison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great recording of some of the best film music ever. From the

great westerns to the Theme from Airplane to music he did for television,

Bernstein was one of the greatest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Creative Genius At Work! Feb. 24 2014
By jakedaisy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Elmer Bernstein wrote so much wonderful music for films that one doesn't know where to being. A guy from Brooklyn wrote such wonderful music for Westerns (Magnificent Seven and all those John Wayne Westerns, for example) and there he goes writing for The Hawaiians and To Kill A Mockingbird. Wonderful, wonderful man and one of the Very Best Film Score composer! You can't miss! I love the Collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Master Composer and Musician Dec 20 2013
By ron swenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Elmer Bernstein.....truly one of the great Golden Age composers, along with Miklos Rozsa, Alfred Newman, Max Steiner, just to name a few. I'm a huge fan of movie scores and over the years have collected hundreds of soundtrack recordings. A number of years ago I had a chance to meet Elmer at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, as he was invited to lead the Youth Symphony Orchestra in one of their selections, which happened to be a suite from "The Magnificent Seven." When he talked to you, it was like he had always known you, a very warm person, and he was 80 years old at the time. If you're a fan of his, this is an excellent CD to purchase. If only more volumes of his compositions could be produced, as he has scored many many movies.
