Disques Cinémusique presents Sands Of Iwo Jima/Island In The Sky
19-Sep-2012 - Disques Cinémusique presents for the first time on CD the soundtracks from two classic American dramas starring the legendary John Wayne. In Sands Of Iwo Jima, Wayne plays Sergeant John M. Stryker, a ruthless US Marine who trains a company of recruits to fight the Japanese during World War II. Victor Young manages to deliver outstanding music both for the training and action cues, and the more quiet moments. Island In The Sky is a true story that takes place in Labrador shortly after World War II, when a cargo plane crew faces a violent snowstorm and is forced to land in a remote desert of ice. The ambitious symphonic score is unusually penned by three composers, Emil Newman, Hugo Friedhofer and Herbert Spencer.
