'The Moscow players appear right at home with this rousing score ...'

Korngold: The Adventures of Robin Hood. © 2015 Naxos Rights US Inc

Korngold's score was awarded the Oscar for Best Original Score and is one of the best examples of music written in the style of the studio era of the 1930s and 40s — the Classical Hollywood era.

Originally on the Marco Polo label, this recording was welcomed as ideal film music. It presents a definitive restoration of Korngold's lively 1938 score for Warner Bros' popular Adventures of Robin Hood, starring the quintessential swashbuckler, Errol Flynn, and still one of the most-loved of all motion pictures with directors Michael Curtiz and William Keighley. Korngold captures the well-known folk drama, colourful display, blazing combat, chivalrous romance, humour and rustic comedy...
