AT LAST! For the first time the complete Erich Wolfgang Korngold score (over one hour and forty minutes) for the 1940 classic film THE SEA HAWK on two CDs – newly recorded and including music omitted in the final release version of the film. In addition, on the second CD, for the first time, the complete Korngold score to the 1946 Bette Davis drama, DECEPTION, including Korngold’s Cello Concerto as presented in the film rather than the concert hall version. Our recording also includes the original trailer music for both films.
William Stromberg conducts the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and Chorus from the score restoration by John Morgan -- the team that has provided impeccable and authentic classic film score recordings over many years.
Included in the two-CD set is a 24 page booklet written by Korngold–Sea Hawk–Deception authorities Brendan Carroll, Rudy Behlmer, and John Morgan. After THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD recorded complete by Naxos in 2003), THE SEA HAWK has been the most requested Korngold score by film music aficionados
