Dr. Mark Evans, author of Soundtrack: The Music of the Movies, has posted a video review of the Dimitri Tiomkin Anthology on YouTube. His program, “Mark! My Words,” can be found on radio and television and in-print as a newspaper column. In the six-minute video, “Mark! My Words on Music-The Dimitri Tiomkin Anthology,” Dr. Evans talks about Tiomkin and the contents of the Hal Leonard anthology that he describes as “excellent.”
If you enjoyed the Dimitri Tiomkin Anthology, you might also be interested in The Franz Waxman Collection recently released by Hal Leonard. Editor Patrick Russ, who contributed many of the arrangements for both the Tiomkin and Waxman volumes, brings more than forty piano/vocal selections by Waxman together for the first time. The introduction by John Waxman is followed by a dozen behind-the-scenes photographs of his father. Below, is a photograph from our Photo Gallery of the two composers sharing a moment at a dinner party.
