Various ‎– 2001: A Space Odyssey (Music From The Motion Picture Sound Track)

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
The first releases didn't include the version of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Herbert von Karajan with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra that was featured in film (the Decca company, owner of the recording, didn't want to get related with film and gave permission to use it with the condition of not being credited). Instead of it, the original soundtrack album included a Deutsche Grammophon recording by Karl Böhm with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
The definitive soundtrack releases from 1996 retrieved the Karajan recording, an altered version of György Ligeti's "Adventures" that was used in film without the composer's permission, as well as longer versions of other selections and additional material, with a partly different track order.

Stunning remaster with broad dynamics even appropriate hiss 'air' that acknowledges the analog source. Lavish booklet inside too with lots of photos

'2001: A Space Odyssey' is an all-time Sci-Fi masterpiece directed by Stanley Kubrik in 1968 which was acclaimed as the most well-known, influential and legendary Sci-Fi movie ever. The soundtrack for 2001 was equally ground breaking, putting together the classic "Blue Danube" by Johann Strauss & J.S. Jr. with the seminal "Also Sprach Zarathustra" (Richard Strauss) and, most of all, the innovative experimental compositions of György Ligeti: "Requiem For Soprano, Mezzo Soprano, Two Mixed Choirs & Orchestra" (1967), "Atmospheres" (1961) and "Lux Aeterna" (1968) - all of them part of the last chapter of the movie, "Jupiter And Beyond The Universe".
A Soundtrack as legendary as the movie itself.

Stanley Kubrick first asked for a classical score to composer Alex North for his movie "2001: A Space Odyssey". But, after several private screenings, Kubrick opted for this mix of contemporary and classical music we all know now. The only discordant fact about this score is that György Ligeti sued Kubrick for alterations of his track "Adventures" and won the case. On this special edition you will find the unaltered full-length version of the original, nearly theatrical vocal happening. On the other hand, Alex North recently recorded his own unused version of "2001" and it's now available to general public.
From the theme of "2001" to the haunting, scary chants composed by Ligeti, this soundtrack is, by far, one of the most original I have ever heard. We don't do this anymore, unfortunately. Today, they might have asked the Baha Men or Celine Dion to do the soundtrack (imagine Celine Dion singing her love in an astronaut suite?).
The waltz are beautiful. The Gayane Ballet Suite is a tragic composition, later re-used in part by James Cameron in "Aliens" as a tribute. But the Ligeti chants are really the most captivating moments of the score. Impossible not to be scared, or hypnotized by them.
