John Huston’s 1956 film adaptation of Melville’s epic novel Moby Dick is a genuine grand movie adventure.

Including music omitted from the soundtrack, this recording was widely acclaimed upon its original release, with Gramophone considering the score to be “music of richly stocked imagination…” “… anyone who enjoys Finzi and Howells will find Sainton’s music equally appealing …” (ClassicsToday)
