  • Tech Talk From The Producer…

    This CD of Laurence Rosenthal’s compelling and dramatic original soundtrack from The Forgotten was assembled and mastered from pristine-condition 1/4″ 15-ips two-track stereo session mixes made at Evergreen Recording Studios. Included within the assembly are Rosenthal’s complete piano source cues, albeit they do not appear in their entirety in the finished film. Several of the orchestral cues are truncated in the film as well but they are included here in complete form, exactly as they were recorded.

    While the entire score—with its elegant main theme and variety of dramatic cues— Intrada Signature Edition | Volume 1049 bears noting, we would like to spotlight the particularly intense cue entitled “The Hunters.” Here, with dynamic low string and brass rhythms, staccato figures for woodwinds and propulsive percussion including xylophone, Rosenthal offers what is surely one of the most exciting and energetic action sequences of his long and distinguished career.

    We invite you now to tour the dramatic musical world of The Forgotten, with Laurence Rosenthal as your guide.
