Original score composed by Elmer Bernstein.

Personnel: James Sedares (conductor); The Phoenix Symphony.

While Elmer Bernstein's jazzy score for Otto Preminger's junkie drama, THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM (1955), put him on the map, his compositions for THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (1960) cemented his sterling reputation. To give John Sturges's epic Western--an adaptation of Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece THE SEVEN SAMURAI--a sense of sweeping musical majesty, Bernstein drew inspiration from his legendary mentor Aaron Copland, creating a score of lushly orchestral pieces that packed a serious punch. The soundtrack's most notable piece is "Main Theme and Calvera," a bold, propulsive tune featuring an undeniably catchy melody that perfectly captures the expanse of the American West and has become woven into the fabric of pop culture, recognized by many who aren't even aware of its origins. (Remarkably, this album went unreleased for decades.) The rest of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN lives up to its well-known opener, and includes such dynamic tracks as the lumbering, percussive "Fiesta" and the delicate, folk-tinged "Petra's Declaration." A stellar example of a classic Hollywood score, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN is absolutely essential for fans of American film music.
