A Space Odyssey -
Motion Picture Soundtrack
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
in 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 and
three works by György Ligeti-"Aventures", "Requiem",
"Atmospheres", and "Lux Aeterna".
It comes vigorously recommended.
