Michael Kamen's Opus

Michael Kamen's Opus

by Michael Kamen

CD

Overview

A newly recorded album featuring highlights from composer Kamen's most successful film scores, MICHAEL KAMEN'S OPUS is the kind of compilation album that should appeal to both casual listeners and soundtrack collectors. The performances by the London Metropolitan Orchestra and the Seattle Symphony are excellent, and the collection includes tracks both familiar (ROBIN HOOD-PRINCE OF THIEVES, DON JUAN DeMARCO, MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS) as well as relatively obscure (THE NEXT MAN, CRUSOE, EDGE OF DARKNESS). Standouts include a selection from Kamen's outstanding HIGHLANDER score and a beautiful arrangement of "You're The One" from CIRCLE OF FRIENDS with Kamen himself on solo piano. Nicely packaged, with notes from the composer.
