World premiere release of complete Leonard Rosenman score to all-time classic fourth installment of legendary STAR TREK feature-film franchise, starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, directed by Nimoy. Intrada presentation is part of current ongoing CD restoration series of complete STAR TREK film soundtracks being overseen by Paramount, this one through courtesy of both Paramount, UMG. (Other titles appear on Film Score Monthly, La-La Land labels.) Time travel, whales feature in this particular movie, Rosenman draws inspiration from both in exciting score. Musical ideas are sometimes energetic, exciting, sometimes cerebral, complex. Rosenman even gives thematic attention to Chekov, a franchise rarity! Complete Intrada CD restoration offers full score with previously unreleased cues, versions appearing on 1986 MCA album plus several alternates including Rosenman's unused take on famous Alexander Courage TV theme. Fun to hear Rosenman's own signature brass "pyramid" at climax of Courage's melody!

Production by Lukas Kendall, mix & assembly by Mike Matessino plus definitive liner notes by Jeff Bond round out stellar package, itself designed by Joe Sikoryak to comfortably fit in with other STAR TREK feature soundtrack restorations. Leonard Rosenman conducts.

  • Tech Talk From The Co-Producer…

    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was recorded on the Paramount Pictures scoring stage by ace engineer Dan Wallin, the resident scoring mixer when The Record Plant operated Paramount’s famous Stage M. The music was recorded onto Sony 3324 digital tape—a ½’’ multi-track format with 24 tracks, enough to contain the individual orchestral channels as well as two “live” mixes: two-track (left-right, also recorded on a 1610 Sony PCM digital tape for album use) and three-track (left-center-right, also recorded onto 35mm magnetic film for film dubbing). For this expanded edition CD, our primary source was the three-track mix, folded down into two-channel stereo by Mike Matessino, with editorial assistance from Neil S. Bulk.

    The Yellowjackets tracks are newly mastered from a 1610 of the final mixes. “I Hate You” is presented from Mark Mangini’s ¼’’ monaural master of the film mix. (Because the track was intended to come from a ghetto blaster in the film, no stereo master was required.)

    To replicate the 1986 soundtrack album, program: 22, 11, 6, 20, 15, 9, 18, 5, 10, 3, 14.
