Elmer Bernstein's score for THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN is an innovative and groundbreaking score ringing in a new era not only for the Western film genre but for all film music. Elmer Bernstein's main theme for THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN besides being highly recognizable is both rousing and reflective. It is a statement on the nature of bravery and nobility as the seven gunmen go up against innumerable odds for the rights of the downtrodden. The score is pensive yet contains great orchestral movement which not only advances the plot but entices the viewer to become enthralled in the drama. Bernstein infuses both traditional Western and Mexican orchestral flavor into the score, yet rearranges these styles to deliver the adventure and human drama of the tale. However, most importantly Bernstein asks the viewer by the film's finale to fathom the enigma of bravery and self-sacrifice of these seven noble gunmen. This recording is one of a handful of soundtracks that should be classified as essential.

It looked like the soundtrack to "The Magnificent Seven" would never return. But it has! This is the original version from the 1960 movie. It looked like we would never see it again when the Ryko CD went out of print. This is an esential score. Glad to have it back.

HASH(0xa48f4ee8) out of 5 stars One of Hollywood's last great scores Dec 4 2004
By Gene DeSantis - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Some film scores are simply better than their films. It's been a while since I've seen "The Magnificent Seven" -- on television -- and I can only recall a big, lumbering, pale imitation of its source, the great "Seven Samurai," one of the most exciting movies ever. But in a key respect the Americans bettered the Japanese, with breathtakingly evocative music. If Elmer Bernstein pays homage to Copland -- quite a bit of it (and to Prokofiev, de Falla and Ravel too) he nonetheless weaves it into dramatically effective work identifiably his own. As one would expect with the author of "The Man with the Golden Arm" he is especially inventive in his use of guitar and percussion. Of course the main attraction is that leitmotif, the main-title theme (repeated six or seven times -- no problem when you get the goose bumps each time). The Philip Morris folks dumbed it down to sell Marlboros, and too many people surely think the score a mere excuse for a jingle. Removed from considerations of lung cancer and heart disease that theme is still one of the best. In its own odd way it suggests the pop music of the time -- one can hear Gene Pitney singing it (as he did the Bacharach-David tune "The Man who Shot Liberty Valance," a brazen but enjoyable copy), or Herb Alpert appropriating it several years later for his pop-mariachi sound -- and that only heightens the interest. No, this score is far more than ad music. This is a masterpiece.

Quite decent sound through speakers. In reviews of Rykodisc's initial release a number of people complained of distortion, and one mentioned tape hiss, and though the defects are vaguely audible -- you can hear the hiss fading out before the music -- there is no substituting for the authentic soundtrack ambience here.

HASH(0xa3ba99c0) out of 5 stars Elmer Bernsteins's creative vision was superb June 26 2007
By Scott Mora - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I grew up viewing films and listening to their music soundtracks by Elmer Bernstein. I was a big fan of other music maestros of that era as well, such as Alfred Newman (How The West Was Won) and Jerome Moross (The Big Country). But Bernstein's original 1960 masterpiece, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN and the 1966 sequel RETURN OF THE SEVEN were pure genius! In fact, the music score was actually better than the film itself. The music is what western film afficianados remember most about both movies. His rousing music score got as much publicity as any cast member in promoting THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN. Elmer Bernstein was a student of the great Aaron Copeland, whose own "Americana" approach was skillfully brilliant. Elmer Bernstein is a name in music that continues to be synonymous with creativity, versatility and longevity. He wrote the music for over 200 films and TV shows during his career. A longevity feat matched by no other film composer.

I can't think of a motion picture where the music was so important to the movie itself. The Magnificent7, holds up today as well as it did 50 years ago. Perfectly balanced, you can visualize the movie as the music plays. My all time favorite western movie, partly because of the terrific casting job they did and equally as important....the music. This CD is wonderfully put together and with today's technology it sounds better than ever. So if your a Magnificent7 fan, this is a must buy. Kicking back in your easy chair or hitting the road, this CD will just charge you up. I highly recommend this purchase. All i have left to say is......ENJOY.
