Chang-Sha - Jerry Goldsmith - The Sand Pebbles (Vinyl, LP) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
By James Southall Thursday December 20, Jerry Goldsmith scored some notable stinkers during his career; on many occasions he seemed to work on projects that were considerably beneath him. The film focuses on an American gunboat, the San Pablo, which finds itself caught up in the conflict, and deals with issues of tolerance for other cultures in an incredibly mature way, with all its Vietnam allegories.
The production was very expensive and every dollar is there to see on the screen — the recreation of China is particularly impressive. Steve McQueen gives arguably his finest performance and receives able support from, amongst others, Richard Attenborough and Richard Crenna. The film was by far the highest profile that Goldsmith had scored up to that point. Alex North was originally slated to score it LP) recommended his young apprentice when he pulled out, considering the violence too much for him it is a harrowing tale at times.
LP) took to the challenge of scoring the complex film with relish, boosted by an unusually long period allowed to him for composing the score three months. He used the time well, fashioning a score which works on the surface as a great romantic adventure score but which on closer inspection reveals extraordinary emotional complexity. For me, the piece works well in the large-scale form heard during the Overture; but it really comes into its own when the composer plays it in more intimate variations over the course of the score, often reducing the orchestra to a handful of strings and a reed or two.
This is music which really is worth the time exploring in great detail; far less celebrated than the only other collaboration between this composer and director 13 years later, LP) Trek: The Motion Picture in many ways it is just as rewarding. There have been three CD releases of The Sand Pebbles — in Varese Sarabande issued a re-recording of the highlights of the score with Goldsmith conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, then in the same label released the majority of the score.
Another great review James. Thanks for keeping us up on all the great Goldsmith releases. I picked this one up based on your older review.
