Product Description

Amazon.ca

This commemorative reissue of music from 2001: A Space Odyssey combines the Also sprach Zarathustra theme, various Johann and Richard Strauss segments, and a ballet suite by Aram Khachaturian--all of which prove how much Stanley Kubrick's film attempts to avoid the soundtrack clichés of most science-fiction movies. Instead of the expected sci-fi effects, there is a more ironic application of music that would be otherwise incongruous to the celestial settings. Here, "The Blue Danube" complements scenes involving weightlessness and descending spacecraft, while Gyorgy Ligeti's creepy "monolith" music connotes Armageddon more than interplanetary exploration. The tracks play as they had appeared on the original soundtrack release back in the '60s, but there is also previously unreleased supplemental material and a dialogue montage entitled "HAL 9000." --Joseph Lanza

Product Description

Dum Dum Dum Da Dum! For the first time ever , here are the original full-length recordings from the actual film masters to the greatest science-fiction movie of all time, together with new liner notes and a photo-packed booklet. From Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra through Johann Strauss' The Blue Danube to Gyorgy Ligeti's eerie modern compositions-not to mention a few words from HAL-a profound listening experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Soundtracks I Have Heard!! July 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
2001: a space odyssey is an excellent soundtrack and if you loved the movie like I did than I highly recommend this soundtrack. In the movie all the songs they used were classical pieces which all sounded great and every single one of them was worth listening to.
The CD features all of the songs from the movie in the order that they come in and it features some of the same songs more than once like "Also Sprach Zarathustra" and "The Blue Danube".
"Atmospheres" is the overture song and is a great place to start the album with it's very soft horns that get louder throughout the song. "Also Sprach Zarathustra" is my absolute favorite song on the album. I love every second of it with it's loud horns and drums. This songnwas used when at the beginning when you see the opening credits, when the ape discovered that he could use the bone as a tool and when Dave Bowmen turned into the star child. "Requiem for Soprano, Mezzo Soprano, Two mixed Choirs and Orchestra" is a very haunting track with voices and an orchestra that sound very future like. This song was used when the monoliths were discovered and at "Jupiter and Beyond". "The Blue Danube" is a very nice beautiful song and it was used when the spaceship was traveling to the moon. "Lux Aeterna" is also a haunting track with some voices at throughout the song. It was used while the astronauts were traveling on the spaceship. The songs "Gayane Ballet Suite, "Jupiter and Beyond" were used when Dave, Frank, and the other astronauts were traveling on the Discovery with the new Hal 9000.
There is also some supplemental material which includes another version of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" which is done by the Sudwesfunk Orchestra instead of the Vienna Philharmonic. It also includes other versions of "Lux Aeterna" and "Adventures".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future is Enigmatic July 18 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the best CD to date of the music and sounds of this fantastic yet most realistic film of man's future destiny in space and beyond. I was glad that much of the orignal music from the original album was on this CD. They did a good job with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Source Music Soundtrack Ever? Jan. 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
I think so - the only serious competitors for the title that I can think of are the soundtracks for Tarantino's Pulp Fiction and Scorsese's Mean Streets.
Stanley Kubrick was widely acknowledged as a master of selecting just the right music for his films, a gift that is nowhere better demonstrated than it is here.
Can you really picture anything other than "Also Sprach Zarathustra" accompanying 2001's title sequence? Anything other than "The Blue Danube" running behind the film's first spaceflight scene?
The reals gems here, however, are the stunning pieces by Gyorgy Ligeti. His "Requiem..." is probably the most disturbing piece of music I've ever heard; his "Adventures" (best heard in its unaltered version, which is thankfully included) among the most suspensefully comic.
Highly recommended to anyone with a passion for great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Out Of This World Dec 31 2001
Format:Audio CD
One of the greatest things about Stanley Kubrick's magisterial 1968 sci-fi epic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is the cagey way he puts certain classical pieces to work in the service of the film. The soundtrack to this groundbreaking movie must almost certainly rank as the best use of classical music ever put to film, aside from Disney's original FANTASIA.
Thanks to Kubrick, no one can forget the imposing "Sunrise" of Richard Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra" (as done by Herbert Von Karajan and the Vienna Philharmonic). Nor can anyone forget the scene of the wheel-shaped spaceport rotating to the strains of Johann Strauss' celebrated "The Blue Danube", or the Stargare sequence, which utilizes three works by Gyorgy Ligeti--"Requiem", "Atmospheres", and "Adventures." Although one can rightly complain about "The Blue Danube" being split into two sections on the CD, like the movie itself, the 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY soundtrack is essential listening for classical music buffs and movie music buffs alike. It comes vigorously recommended.

Stanley Kubrick was one of the greatest moviemakers of all time. But he also had an excellent ear for music, as shown in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Timeless
This film was made at a time when music was not indelibly associated with specific imagery as it is in modern music video. This work is one of the first to do that. Read more

Why cant they release a proper soundtrack this film? Almost every version I've owned has chopped the Blue Danube into 2 or 3 tracks, and they never get the full Star Gate... Read more
