By Ben Ohmart
"This soundtrack's deep resonant stalking is captivating, in that uncertain, looking-over-your-shoulder way. While I wouldn't suggest this CD to beginning Hermann fans, I definitely can't tell tried and true Bernardos to stay away. It just mustn't be done."
"Once virtually disdained by musicians, Bernard Hermann is enjoying a revival. His scores for 'The Snows of Kilimanjaro' and '5 Fingers' are played by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra conducted by William Stromberg. There is still some resistance to acknowledging the importance of film music, but for those with more eclectic tastes this highly dramatic and effective repertoire can be exhilarating."
By Amer Zahid
"The score is best described as lyrical but mostly poignant and melancholy. It is at times sweepingly pastoral and yet effectively restrained... The sound quality is wonderfully close miked and is more spacious, with the brass sections very crisp and the percussion well balanced...Overall these two unknown scores have been resurrected from obscurity and will add great value to any self respecting Herrmann and film music fan. A must have!"
