OZ - THE GREAT AND POWERFUL
Composed by DANNY ELFMAN
Intrada and Walt Disney Records announce the release Danny Elfman's score to Oz - The Great and Powerful. Elfman composed a score as colorful and adventurous as Oz itself. Rich in themes, energy, magic, and mystery, the score features Elfman's trademark style, including the striking use of chorus. The score has it's tender, heart-felt side as well, resulting in a varied musical journey through Oz that will compel the listener from start to finish. Combined with beautiful artwork, the soundtrack to Oz one of the most elegant soundtrack releases of the year. Elfman anchors with gentle music box tune, then expands idea into large-scale orchestral work, including chorus. Moments of truly imaginative color trade with massive action set pieces, music of light trades with music of darkness. Everywhere, magical Elfman melody abounds! Contrasting music for iconic witches amongst many highlights. Dennis Sands records large forces with stunning clarity at Sony Scoring Stage. Marc Mann conducts choir, Pete Anthony conducts orchestra.
Sensational new score by Danny Elfman for Disney's new movie, looking at origins of beloved L. Frank Baum characters, directed by Sam Raimi, starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams. Intrada proudly presents soundtrack as latest co-brand with Walt Disney Records.
When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot, until he meets three witches who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Relucantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and whjo is evil before it is too late. Directed by Sam Raimi, Oz - The Great and Powerful opens March 8.
