It hasn't been announced in an email or on the Facebook page yet, but Omni Music Publishing's edition of "North By Northwest" by Bernard Herrmann is now available for purchase worldwide for 75 US Dollars.

Thank you for posting this. I ordered it immediately.

I know that this is expensive for most of us, but the study of a composer's manuscript is immensely helpful in understanding the music. I have had a great deal of fun following Goldsmith's Total Recall manuscript while listening to the soundtrack. Amazingly, the manuscript lines up with the last expanded edition of the soundtrack nearly 100% of the time.

I can't wait to see the orchestrations for North by Northwest. Thanks, OMNI!

Robin Hood is on temporary hiatus. The approval for two other books came in so I am jumping on those first. Then I am squeezing in another one. Robin Hood will be after these three.

Thanks to everyone for purchasing.

Care to share which scores perhaps? Anything else by Goldsmith or Korngold?

What sort of time table are we looking at? I assume 'approval' means you actually haven't done the work on them yet. so it'll be a while.

Yes to Goldsmith. Robin Hood is just a massive score, so it will have to wait while I work on a John Powell score. The timing just works better this way. After that, an Alan Menken score, and another Horner, followed by either Robin Hood or the Goldsmith one. They are all great scores, and I'd love to release them all immediately, but they take time to assemble.

If you say you are working on HTTYD I’m gonna lose it. Would love to get that full score!!

For Goldsmith well, the sky is the limit but for selfish reasons

ST:TMP (obviously)
Papillon (my personal fave of his)
POTA
First Blood (the original)

I should qualify and earlier comment I made about the book expenses. They are actually priced very fairly. Full conductor's scores of classical and concert music cost as much, and even Hal Leonard Signature Series Williams ones which are just suites are as expensive if not more, and you are only getting PART of the score. Omni presents the entire score! And the packaging is lovely.

I'm in a position where I live outside the US so shipping and conversion rates take a modest $80 offering and effectively double it. $160 then becomes a purchase that I have to really think about as opposed to the $80. This isn't Omni's fault. This is just circumstantial/situational.

So, for me, I try to be selective about what I purchase. There's no way in hell I could do take downs on Davis' Matrix. Way too complex and I wanted to see what he did, so it was a worthwhile investment for me. The same will apply to Korngold's Robin Hood. It's incredibly dense, complex writing. And highly chromatic. I've been hemming and hawing over Goldsmith's Total Recall because that too is a beast of a score... still thinking. But I will wait to see what other Goldsmith Tim comes out with. I'd love The Final Conflict too... amazing score.

Legend, well, that's not gonna happen but one can dream.....that's another score that is as complex as a Ravel or Stravinsky ballet!
