“These songs are so satisfying to sing—they are classic Broadway, and they became classic film.”– Julie Andrews, introduction to THE SOUND OF MUSIC – 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Nominated for 10 Academy Awards and winner of five, including Best Picture and Best Director, the iconic film adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound Of Music stands as the most successful movie musical of all time, enjoying a seven-year run as the highest-grossing film of all time from 1966 to 1972 and remaining a consistent favorite through worldwide television broadcasts and home video releases.
As part of an extensive half-century celebration, THE SOUND OF MUSIC – 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION will feature previously unreleased orchestral cues from the Academy Award winning score and all vocal performances on one CD for the first time. Led by Julie Andrews, whose work in the film earned her a Golden Globe award and an Academy Award nomination, the soundtrack rings out with heart-warming, iconic standards. From the title composition, ‘The Sound of Music’, to ‘Sixteen Going on Seventeen’,‘Do-Re-Mi’, ‘Edelweiss’, ‘So Long, Farewell’, ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’ and of course ‘My Favorite Things’, THE SOUND OF MUSIC is a treasure for all time.
In addition to the previously unreleased material, the new soundtrack will also include new introductory notes from Julie Andrews and Theodore S. Chapin, president and executive director of Rodgers & Hammerstein; and in-depth liner notes written by Laurence Malson, author of The Sound Of Music Companion. The CD package will also include rare photographs and illustrations from the film.
