ItÕs here! World premiere release of the complete soundtrack by Elmer Bernstein for Cecil B. DeMilleÕs all-time greatest epic and box-office champion! Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Edward G. Robinson, Anne Baxter, John Derek, Vincent Price and many others bring powerful and inspiring story of Moses to vivid life. A lot of hands put in several years to make this release possible: Paramount, Universal Music Group, MGM, Intrada. Six CDs, three premiering the entire original two and a half hour soundtrack for the first time ever - much of it in stereo, also for the first time ever! Every cue appears, including all of the myriad fanfares, processions, court dances, authentic shofars (eight of them!), percussion tracks, harp sequences, Theremin and Novachord overlaysÉ everything right down to the tiniest tiple, a rare member of the guitar family. All of BernsteinÕs magnificent and justifiably famous masterpiece appears intact and uncut, including numerous sequences edited from the finished film! And after the complete score, another 40 minutes of never-before-heard alternates and unused music! Trailer cues! And if all of this doesnÕt make the first three CDs ample proof of BernsteinÕs genius, enjoy Bernstein himself introducing and playing his major themes in an ultra-rare, recently unearthed 12-minute piano demo prepared for DeMille at the start of the scoring process. CD 4 presents the original one hour soundtrack as released by Dot Records in mono in 1957, CD 5 gives you the then-newly re-recorded 1960 album issued by Dot to meet the growing demand for a stereo performance - this version being newly conducted by Bernstein to closely approximate the original 1957 album - and CD 6 offers the CD premiere of the 1966 United Artists stereo album recorded by Bernstein using new arrangements made by his long-time orchestrators Leo Shaken and Jack HayesÉ all of the last three discs are presented from the original album master tapes stored in pristine condition in several studio vaults. Lavishly illustrated 60-page booklet designed by Joe Sikoryak includes full color reproductions of various album cover designs, authoritative notes by Frank K. DeWald about the production and scoring sessions including dates on the various releases, musician rosters, cue assemblies, pre-production artwork and more. Expert audio restoration work done by Chris Malone. Yes, fans of those glorious epic-era ÒroadshowÓ movies with their majestic and opulent scores and just plain ordinary music lovers of all types - rejoice! Elmer Bernstein conducts all 6 CDs. ÒSo let it be writtenÉ so let it be done!Ó
