EMH Classical Music Library 

The scene opens in a canyon gorge with three kayakers leisurely paddling through calm waters. Then, we notice the canyon narrowing with the occasional boulder creating an obstacle. Finally, the river turns into a white water dash to safety. The original score was created in 5.1 surround sound; but, there’s nothing in the budget for this scene. Still, a dramatic piece is needed here to heighten the drama. Smetana’s Moldau would be the perfect fit and give the editor something to cut to. But stereo won’t do.

The EMH Classical Music Library was produced for situations exactly like this,  The creator, Ted Hinckley, has two decades of experience as a music producer, editor and scoring supervisor working on 40 full-length feature films as well as 18 IMAX productions. As technology provided new tools for filmmakers, he realized that the music didn’t always keep pace. So, he went to work.

The result is a collection of 200 cuts—900 minutes in all—featuring the great classical works of masters such as Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Vivaldi as well as Dvořák produced in 24-bit 96K 5.1 surround sound. Pieces include such world renown compositions such as Four Seasons, the 1812 Overture, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Symphony 40 and excerpts from the Nutcracker, the New World Symphony and The Messiah. The productions included pieces performed by full orchestras, orchestras and choirs, chamber orchestras, string ensembles, quartets—even individual piano, harpsichord performances. There is also an entire disc of organ music recorded in Prague’s world-famous Dvořák Concert Hall, the Rudolfinum, featuring such classics as Toccata in Fugue (by Ales Bartha). Performed largely in Prague by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, all 200 pieces will be available on CUEgle in the normal stereo formats, as well as on audio CD.  Additionally, surround mixes of all cues will be available by special request for clients who require that format. Also, certain recordings that include choir will also be available in a "no-vocal" instrumental mix, which is a very unique feature in the classical recording world.
