Max Steiner was the epitome of the classic Hollywood film composer, which makes him an ideal candidate for inclusion in conductor Charles Gerhardt's series of "Classic Film Scores" albums of recordings with the National Philharmonic Orchestra. Steiner started out in film in 1930, at the dawn of the sound era, and wrote hundreds of scores into the early '60s, retaining his initial sensibility, in which music, as it might have in the silent era, needed to do a lot of dramatic work

Now Voyager: Classic Film Scores of Max Steiner. RCA Red Seal 88697812702.

Composed By – Max Steiner Conductor – Charles Gerhardt Orchestra – National Philharmonic Orchestra Producer – George Korngold.

Gone With the Wind: Max Steiner's Classic Film Scores. Charles Gerhardt conducts the "National Philharmonic Orchestra" which is made up of the best musicians from among London's 5 major symphony orchestras. This was RCA's most ambitious recording in their Classic Film Scores series, requiring a huge orchestra, augmented percussion, and a large chorus. It just seems to me the engineers must have been "under the gun". as it were, to get this in the can as quickly as possible. After all, not too long after the original LP release, RCA pulled the plug on the project.

The National Philharmonic Orchestra was a British orchestra created exclusively for recording purposes. It was founded by RCA Records producer and conductor Charles Gerhardt and orchestra leader and contractor Sidney Sax. The orchestra was created partly due to the requirements of an extensive recording project for the Reader's Digest
