World premiere CD release for exciting David Shire soundtrack to Robert Wise disaster-conspiracy thriller about possible Hindenburg sabotaging, starring George C. Scott, Anne Bancroft. David Shire anchors with luxurious floating soliloquy for trumpet with strings, woodwinds, French horn in tow. Pulsating action fuels "The Letter", complex harmonies weight "Suspect Montage", "Boerth Sets the Bomb". Powerful highlight: "Fin Repair Sequence" begins with subtle figure for snare drum, bass drum, cymbals underneath clarinets. Idea builds, strings add tension, brass appear. Full orchestra flows with repair melody then entire piece suddenly becomes virtuoso display featuring dynamic, shrill ostinato for fortissimo flutes, piccolo over pounding chords in low brass. Cue reaches powerful climax, finally ends with bravura finish. Wow! Intrada CD offers complete 1975 MCA LP (almost all of Shire's original music was featured) digitally re-mastered at Universal using original stereo album masters. Colorful packaging includes original album artwork, stills, informative notes by Jeff Bond. David Shire conducts. Special Collection release limited to 3000 copies!
