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.
