Patrick O' Connor
The Daily Telegraph (Australia), August 1999

"...brilliantly played by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra."

David Hurwitz

"Max Steiner was a trailblazing composer in so many ways. In King Kong he furnished the archetypal monster movie score; Gone With The Wind defined the music for historical romance epics; They Died With Their Boots On, the story of General Custer's 'last stand' at the battle of Little Big Horn, typifies the music of the 'pre-Copland' Western. ...innumerable composers [used] ...Steiner's pentatonic Indian tunes and rousing cavalry marches whenever directors pointed their lenses westward. The most remarkable thing about Steiner's music is its seemingly inexhaustible energy: this stuff really moves... Stromberg and his Moscow band ...rise to the instrumental challenges of the final battle with virtuosic glee. The disc is good, clean fun. Another classic."
