Quite possibly Lee Holdridge's finest hour! Or nearly two hours, that is! Original soundtrack from Simon Wiesenthal Center's Moriah Films division (Academy Award winners for GENOCIDE and THE LONG WAY HOME), directed by Richard Trank, scored by frequent collaborator Lee Holdridge. Powerhouse music underlines first two decades of Isreal existence, conflicts in Middle East. Exciting battle music, stirring musical pleas for peace play on one side, sensitive melodies, haunting music for Golda play on the other. "Golda Suite" built from five related cues is moving, emotional work that can stand on its own. Massive themes throughout are further highlights. Complete score presented in dynamic stereo from digital masters helmed by Mike Ross in London. Lee Holdridge conducts augmented forces of the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus. Intrada Signature Edition limited to 1000 copies!
