Walt Disney Records: The Legacy Collection ‘FANTASIA’ Review

Walt Disney Records: The Legacy Collection 'FANTASIA'

Walt Disney Records: The Legacy Collection ‘FANTASIA’

by: D-Team Paige

In the 75 years since its release, “Fantasia” has been bringing the beauty of animation and music together for audiences in a way only Disney can do.  Now, the soundtrack for the film has been released for all to enjoy.  “The Legacy Collection: Fantasia” 4-disc set includes all of the original music by Leopold Stokowski, a digital re-recording by Irwin Kostal, and more.

Disc 1 will immerse you in a score of music performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra starting with “Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565” composed by Johan Sebastian Bach and ending with “The Rite of Spring” composed by Igor Stravinsky.  Continuing with Disc 2 is the second half of the film’s music, including “Night on Bald Mountain” by Modeste Moussorgsky, and some additional bonus tracks, such as the Sterling Holloway reading of “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice .”

Discs 3 and 4 follow the same format as the previous discs, but this time with the digital re-recordings performed by the Disney Studio Orchestra and Chorus.  As a bonus on Disc 4, a reading by Sterling Holloway of “Peter and the Wolf” can be enjoyed.

Every piece from the sweeping score in the film is included on these discs in performance order for all to enjoy.  The wonderful thing about these selections is that they stand alone from their animation, so they can be appreciated with or without the film before you.  A gem among gems, it is a worthy addition to any Disney and/or music fan’s collection.

Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel’s Ant-Man Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel's Ant-Man Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel’s Ant-Man Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Marvel Music and Hollywood Records will release the original motion picture digital soundtrack for Marvel’s Ant-Man on July 17, 2015 and will be followed by the physical CD release on July 31, 2015. The score features music by Christophe Beck (“Frozen,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “The Hangover,” “Pitch Perfect”). Marvel’s Ant-Man delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure in U.S. theaters on July 17, 2015.

The film’s director, Peyton Reed, acknowledges one of the key elements of a heist movie is music. “Christophe Beck is the composer on the movie and one of the things we talked about was how I wanted a recognizable theme for the hero and whether or not that could be done in the year 2015,” says Reed. “But we also wanted something that said ‘heist movie’ with a little bit of jazzy vibe to it and also be really fun because even though the stakes are really high in the movie, it’s fun.”

Beck adds, “For Marvel’s Ant-Man, I wanted to write a score in the grand symphonic tradition of my favorite Super Hero movies, with a sweeping scope and a big, catchy main theme. What makes this score stand out among other Marvel movies, though, is a sneaky sense of fun, since it is, after all, not only a Super Hero movie, but also a heist comedy.”

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Marvel’s Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Tip “T.I.” Harris as Dave, Wood Harris as Gale, Judy Greer as Maggie, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, and Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym.

Peyton Reed directs Marvel’s Ant-Man with Kevin Feige, p.g.a. producing and Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Stan Lee  and  Edgar Wright serving as executive producers. The story is by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and the screenplay is by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and Adam McKay & Paul Rudd.

Marvel’s Ant-Man original motion picture digital soundtrack will be available at digital retailers on July 17, 2015 and the physical album will be available wherever music is sold on July 31, 2015.

New Original Song “Making Today A Perfect Day” Featured In New Animated Short “Frozen Fever”

New Original Song "Making Today A Perfect Day" Featured In New Animated Short "Frozen Fever"

New Original Song “Making Today A Perfect Day” Featured In New Animated Short “Frozen Fever”

“Frozen Fever” welcomes back to the big screen the voices that helped bring the “Frozen” favorites to life, and introduces a new song, “Making Today a Perfect Day.” Beginning today for a limited time, the track is available exclusively at iTunes (iTunes.com/FrozenFever).

Kristen Bell (Showtime’s “House of Lies”) once again lends her voice to Anna, and Idina Menzel (Broadway’s “If/Then”) returns as the voice of Elsa. Jonathan Groff (Fox’s “Glee”) voices Kristoff, and Josh Gad (“The Comedians”) provides the voice of unforgettable snowman Olaf. Oscar®-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“Up Here”) and Robert Lopez (“Broadway’s “The Book of Mormon”) wrote the all-new song for the short, and composer Christophe Beck (“Cake”) provides the score.

In “Frozen Fever,” it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but when Elsa catches a cold, her powers may put more than just the party at risk.  The tale is told musically with “Making Today a Perfect Day,” with Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad lending their voices to the original song.

According to the songwriters, “Making Today A Perfect Day” showcases Elsa’s great desire to surprise Anna—all while battling an ever-worsening cold. “I think on some deep level,” says Lopez, “she knows she shouldn’t be doing this party. She should be in bed. But Elsa is fierce and her love for her sister is fierce. So the song has a really intense drive to it—especially the piano.”

Adds Anderson-Lopez, “We wanted it to be that perfect sunny-afternoon song so that it fought against the situation that she’s getting sick; that adds to the comedy.”

Reuniting with the performers was like getting together with old friends, says Anderson-Lopez. “I feel like we’ve been through something extraordinary together and that connection will never go away.”

Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, produced by Peter Del Vecho and Aimee Scribner, and executive produced by John Lasseter, “Frozen Fever” opens March 13, 2015, in front of Disney’s live-action “Cinderella.” The “Cinderella” soundtrack is also available on CD.

But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.

Soon, she is forced to become their servant, disrespected, covered in ashes and spitefully renamed Cinderella. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her, and she continues to remain positive, determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.”

When Ella meets a dashing stranger in the woods, unaware that he is really the Prince (Richard Madden) and not merely Kit, an apprentice at the palace, she believes she has finally found a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the King (Derek Jacobi) summons all maidens in the kingdom to attend a royal ball at the palace, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit. Alas, her Stepmother forbids her to attend and callously destroys her dress.

Meanwhile, the calculating Grand Duke (Stellan Skarsgård) devises a plan to thwart the Prince’s hopes of reuniting with Ella and enlists the support of the devious Stepmother. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand. Soon, a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin, a few mice and a magic wand, changes Cinderella’s life forever.

The Cinderella original motion picture soundtrack will be available wherever music is sold on March 10, 2015. The album is now available for pre-order at iTunes http://smarturl.it/cnsa1 and Amazon http://smarturl.it/cnsama1.
