NAXOS FILM MUSIC CLASSICS SERIES FEATURED IN
THE NEW YORK TIMES

The New York Times published a feature on Naxos' Film Music Classics entitled "A Label Puts Music From Films in Focus" by Daniel J. Wakin on May 7th.

Wakin emphasizes the importance of the series in resurrecting movie music staples by "masters of swelling romantic melody, scampering chase music, stirring chords of triumph, sinister forebodings" such as Max Steiner, Adolph Deutsch, Franz Waxman, Bernard Herrmann, Erich Korngold, and Dmitri Tiomkin.

Wakin also cites the work of John Morgan, the film composer who restored many of these soundtracks for Naxos. Morgan reconstructed complete scores by comparing sketches and other source material to the soundtracks, a process Wakin describes as "painstaking." For Morgan, the job was a labor of love: "For a guy like me, who still has that old-fashioned heart, I guess film music is the only place you can make a living with your heart on your sleeve."
