FILM MUSIC OF GEORGE DREYFUS, vol. 2
conducted by GEORGE DREYFUS with JAMES GALWAY

From the poignant music of Power without glory to the multicultural mix of  Waterfront, we are proud to present Move's second volume of Dreyfus's film music.  Film music collectors will especially want to hear the première performance of the music for Robert Duvall's award winning film Tender Mercies, which was ultimately replaced by silence in the released version. It has not been heard for 23 years, and is not even on the DVD re-issue of the film - only here!

"A Descant for Gossips is an enchanting score: tender, sometimes sprightly but always sensitive... Another lovely score this time set in the wide-open spaces of Texas, was for the Oscar winning Tender Mercies (for Robert Duvall)... Power Without Glory ‘The Death of John West’ a powerful political manipulator, has the intensity and poignancy of the sort of scores one associates with Max Steiner and Franz Waxman... An interesting selection of melodious music." - Ian Lace (MusicWeb)
