Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
The great irony of John Barry's Academy Award-winning score for Out of Africa (which also took the Oscar as Best Picture) is that it almost never was; director Sydney Pollack had originally envisioned the film with native African music, going as far as laying the indigenous score down as he was editing. But the weight of John Barry's arguments--not to mention his considerable track record and composing gifts--held sway, and the composer delivered on his intent: a lush, romantic masterpiece for the ages. --Jerry McCulley

Excellent Music

(5 out of 5 stars)

"What an excellent cd. The music is beautifully haunting and keeps us very entertained. We had seen the movie a long time ago and recently got a chance to see it again. The composer has created a timeless piece of music that carries the listener to another time and place."
