It was 45 years ago that Elmer Bernstein’s stirring and sensitive score for “Birdman of Alcatraz” evoked audiences’ compassion for a convicted murderer serving a life sentence in solitary confinement. Now, new audiences—and generations—can experience what is considered to be among Bernstein’s most important works.

Limited to 3000 copies, this first-time commercial CD release from Varèse Sarabande features complete versions of cues originally abbreviated in the film, as well as 11 additional cues never heard in the final cut.
