Publisher Description

Back in early 1970’s RCA released the LPs of Charles Gerhardt “Classic Film Scores”, a tribute to Hollywood Golden Era film scores. It was a now legendary series of albums with gorgeous recordings and splendid work of both Charles Gerhardt, the National Philharmonic Orchestra and sound engineer Kenneth Wilkinson. Pictures of the recording sessions are extremely rare but I had the luck to be invited as young photographer at London’s Kingsway Hall during the recording session of the “Lost Horizon - Classic Film Scores of Dimitri Tiomkin” album in 1975, and found back the pictures recently. Luckily, the great Hollywood composer Dimitri Tiomkin was there to watch and listen the recording of an album all about his legendary film scores, and you’ll see him on the pictures, sitting in the background. This eBook, which includes a foreword by Charles Gerhardt' friend Robert E Benson, is a tribute to both Charles Gerhardt and the London National Philamonic Orchestra for their splendid work. Through this never-seen-before collection of black and white pictures you will be able to feel the “atmosphere" of the recording session at London’s Kingsway Hall.
