AT LAST! For the first time the complete Erich Wolfgang Korngold score (over one hour and forty minutes) for the 1940 classic film The Sea Hawk on two CDs – newly recorded and including music omitted in the final release version of the film. In addition, on the second CD, for the first time, the complete Korngold score to the 1946 Bette Davis drama, Deception, including Korngold’s Cello Concerto as presented in the film rather than the concert hall version. Our recording also includes the original trailer music for both films.

After The Adventures of Robin Hood  (8.225268), The Sea Hawk has been the most requested Korngold score by film music aficionados.

Many hit movies also feature classical music in their soundtracks. Even if you don’t know the name of the  classical works that you’ve heard on film, you can browse through the alphabetical list of movies on our Music in the Movies Index.
