Review By Andy Cooper,Leader-Post,January 2007

Composer Dimitri Tiomkin wrote a blockbuster score for this stirring 1948 John Wayne western, but confessed: "If I ever see another cow, it will be too soon."

Born in Ukraine in 1894, the classically trained Tiomkin played piano for silent films in Russia before emigrating to the U.S. after the 1917 revolution.

His Hollywood career included landmark films like Lost Horizon, It's A Wonderful Life and High Noon.

Red River was a cattle drive epic packed with action and music to match Wayne's dominant performance. Tiomkin also scored the Duke's Rio Bravo and The Alamo.

This recording featuring the Moscow Symphony Orchestra & Chorus under William Stromberg will give any sound system a vigorous workout.
