THE COMPLETE 1933 FILM SCORE FOR KING KONG

Max STEINER: KING KONG (1933 Film Score) 

Restored by John Morgan 

William T. Stromberg, Moscow Symphony Orchestra

8.557700

On December 14th, Peter Jackson’s re-make of King Kong hit theaters.  The complete film score from the 1933 original movie is now available on Naxos, lovingly restored by John Morgan and performed by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra with William Stromberg.

The King Kong soundtrack is part of Naxos Film Music Classics, a series that includes 14 titles—with more on the way—of complete scores from such classic movies as The Maltese Falcon, Red River, Les Misérables, and Objective, Burma.   Composers represented include Max Steiner, Adolph Deutsch, Franz Waxman, and Bernard Hermann as well as such well-known classical composers as Dmitri Shostakovich and Arthur Honegger.

David Hurwitz of ClassicsToday.com lauded King Kong as "an essential addition to any serious film music collection . . . irresistible." In an article in The New York Times, Daniel J. Wakin praised these CDs for "shining light on the works of a generation of journeyman composers who worked in Hollywood starting in the 1930s."
