'Written in a clean, clear prose shot through with a lightly-worn, concisely-argued scholarship, this is a considerable achievement and an essential read for anyone interested in this vital and still developing genre.' Classical Music Magazine

'The world of film music will rejoice at being the subject of Mervyn Cooke's new book. It is both scholarly and highly accessible - a must have for anyone interested in this increasingly popular topic.' George Fenton, film composer

'Mervyn Cooke hasn't written merely 'a' history of film music - when all the reckoning is done, this will surely be 'the' history of film music written for cinema, from 1920s silent films to the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Writing about a medium that, as Aaron Copland once cogently put it, is designed to be felt rather than explicitly heard is an exacting task, and one that leaves many floundering. But Cooke's background writing about opera and jazz puts his brain in the right place for considering an art form that aims to balance artifice and spontaneity. … An authoritative read, written with the cracking pace of a Bond thriller.' Classic FM

'If you can only buy one film music book, make it this one … This is perhaps one of the most clear and cogently conceived overviews of music that one is likely to see … one is struck by the fine choices Cooke makes to illustrate his point, whether he is discussing a Virgil Thomson score, or why a Scott Bradley animated short score works best. … With no room for subsequent updates or supplements, this may very well be 'the' film music book for some time to come. … this is a book that every lover of film music should have on their shelves. It is a book not so much to be read but to be savoured and enjoyed.' Film Music Review

'The real charm of Mervyn Cooke's A History of Film Music … is the sheer breadth of coverage and the passion with which this coverage is conveyed. Never before has a work attempted such a wide-ranging, vivid, and well-documented sweep of film music and, for this reason among many others, it is a work thoroughly to be recommended.' Music and Letters

Über das Produkt

From silent cinema to the modern Hollywood blockbuster, this volume provides a comprehensive and engaging overview of the major trends in the history of film music.

Das Buch ist sehr voll mit kompaktem Wissen und deckt wirklich alles ab, was man sich wünschen könnte, sogar die neueren Entwicklungen. Der Stil ist etwas stiefmütterlich (trocken), aber logisch und angenehm. Der Autor erwähnt sehr viele Filme, Filmemacher und Techniken, man kriegt Einblicke in die komplette Welt des Films, nicht nur der Filmmusik. Aus diesem Buch kann man wirklich was lernen.
Die Bilder und das Cover sind ein schönes Extra, das Buch ist wirklich schön herausgegeben. Ich habs für 15 gebraucht mit einem Knick im Cover bekommen, hätte aber auch den vollen Preis gezahlt. Lohnt sich.

HASH(0x94b8b36c) von 5 Sternen Almost too comprehensive? 17. September 2010
Von Pecos Pete - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The passion for the subject and the depth of the research overcomes the danger of attempting to cover as much as possible on the subject (film-music history). Given two volumes it would be amazing, and perhaps then Cooke could become the first to take on the last fifteen years of history (so far too daunting for anyone it would seem). I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a broad perspective on the whole picture, which includes great coverage of film-music made in places far from Hollywood. If you are looking for a deeper look and analysis into certain aspects of the history, you might find Film Music: A History a more thoughtful read. And if its "cheap and cheerful" you want, it's hard to beat Film Music: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions). If you are a film-music fan... you need them all :-)

But I'm not opinionated (no, sir).

HASH(0x94b98f90) von 5 Sternen Great book! Get the paperback! 3. Juli 2015
Von Michael G. Shafto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Before encountering this book, I thought I had made a pretty good effort to survey film scores back to the silent era. I had acquired, auditioned, and researched hundreds of soundtracks in all styles. But I was lacking any conceptual framework within which to integrate the material, and (I now know) I was aware of only about 10% of the interesting music and the contexts in which it was composed. I generally agree with the positive comments in previous reviews, especially the combination of scholarship, insight, and humor; the energy and enthusiasm for the topic; and the thorough coverage of prior theoretical work. I also expanded my vocabulary with words such as 'diegetic' (unknown to most spelling checkers), 'distanciation' (ditto), and 'anempathetic' (ditto). I have to issue just one caveat: This is a 2008 publication, and I would have expected the publication process to be fundamentally electronic. My version of the book, however, is an e-book that seems to have been derived from a printed source by some highly erratic OCR technology, without the slightest hint of any proofreading. Cooke definitely deserves better. Whereas the content is great, the raggedy instantiation is too often distracting.

Disapponted---Some good material but any book on film music and does not even mention
RAINTREE COUNTY by Johnny Green or DIANE (1956)---Rozsa, HAWAII (Elmer Bernstein)
and so many other great scores and then mentions some very questionable ones has to
