'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.
