Issue 48/49 of Music from the Movies - now available!

Issue 48/49 of Music from the Movies is now available and, as always, is packed with exciting features, including extensive coverage of recent films Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, A History of Violence, Syriana, Casanova, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, XXX: State of the Union and Flight of the Phoenix. All these reports are fully illustrated with stills from the films and recording session coverage, and feature interviews with the composers concerned and their directors. In addition, the issue includes interviews with Don Davis on his opera Rio de Sangre and pictures from its premiere, Jeff Atmajian on orchestrating Peter Jackson's King Kong, and a general interview with veteran composer Laurence Rosenthal. There is also a "Centenary Tribute" to Benjamin Frankel and of course the usual extensive CD review section, plus a few news items and the valuable "in the pipeline" feature, which keeps one up to date with composers and their forthcoming assignments.
Issue 50 is expected soon, with scheduled features on Superman Returns, X-Men 3, Mission:Impossible 3 and Omen 666.

Speaking of Mission:Impossible 3, if you go to you can find an extensive photo report on the scoring sessions for the film, and even see a picture of Tom Cruise conducting.
