The River Wild 2 CD Set

Intrada announce a complete presentation of Jerry Goldsmith's exciting action thriller score for the 1994 film The River Wild. The running time of the score is now doubled and also comes with a plethora of alternates. Goldsmith's rousing adventure score is anchored by an arrangement of the traditional piece 'The Water Is Wide'. Goldsmith transforms the theme into a beautiful arrangement but its Goldsmith secondary material for the breathtaking vistas, scary white water rapids and the darker thriller elements that give fans the chance to savour Jerry Goldsmith adventure scoring at its best. Round it out with a detailed recording by Bruce Botnick and you get a fantastic start to 2015.

The 2nd disc presents Maurice Jarre's unused score for the first time. This is a unique opportunity to compare Jarre's take on things with Goldsmith's. Notably Jarre did not use the Water Is Wide until the end credits and provides an alternate theme as well as typically aggressive Jarre style histrionics for the adventure elements.

A fantastic opportunity to own two takes for one film over two CDs! Fans get two composers for the price of one! Order from Intrada now!
