That's what I'm wondering. Everything about this sounds great but the release company is a big "?"Originally Posted by bgart13
Never heard of Cohen before. Anyone got some insight on them?
I'm not sure where they came from, but they acquired the Raymond Rohauer Collection a couple of years ago, and that's where this particular release comes from. I think their next release is an Intolerance Blu-Ray, also with a Carl Davis score.Russell G said:That's what I'm wondering. Everything about this sounds great but the release company is a big "?"
If Fantasia had ever done a Scheherezade segment, it would look like this--You'd swear Rimsky-Korsakov had written his piece with the film in mind. Haven't seen the film all the way through (not even when it was on PBS with the score), but I might buy it just for the Davis score. One of the few silent movies for listening to, next to the Moroder Metropolis.Frank Bidart said:Davis version uses themes from the Rimsky-Korsakov tone-poem "Scheherazade," and it is thrillingly appropriate. It allows the Fairbanks-Walsh film an exhilaration and ecstasy that the images themselves have but no other musical accompaniment lets them manifest or embody.
