Sir Neville Marriner - Academy Of St. Martins In The Fields - Amadeus: Original Soundtrack Classics Deluxe Collector's Edition on Limited Edition 180g 3LP + Booklet Box Set 

First Time That the Entire Score is Available on Vinyl in One Package! 

Comes Complete w/ Poster, Illustrated Booklet, Original Liner Notes, Detailed Track Info & Full Storyline Plus New Liner Notes by Original Conductor Sir Neville Marriner!

A masterpiece of movie-making that won eight academy awards, Amadeus is one of the few films about music that presents it with absolute fidelity to its maker's intentions. When producer Saul Zaentz, director Milos Forman, and writer Peter Shaffer asked Sir Neville Marriner to conduct for the 1984 film, he told them yes, "Under one condition, that not one note of Mozart would be changed." 

Marriner's stipulation was honored with such integrity, Forman declared that the music became the picture's third character, after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Marriner disagreed. He said that it was "possibly the first film that has music as its leading character." Critics were as enthusiastic about the motion picture as were audiences. 

The soundtrack recording - a generous sampling of Mozart's genius - stood on its own because of the brilliance of Marriner's conducting and the performance of the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. "So many people," he said, "were introduced to Mozart as a composer compared with what would have happened if we'd just done it in concert halls. It would have taken us a hundred years to reach as many people as the film reached."

Fantasy Records is pleased to present the all-time classic score to Amadeus in a highly-collectable deluxe vinyl box set. This edition marks the first time that the entire score is available on vinyl in one package. This special 180g 3LP box set comes complete with a poster and an illustrated booklet featuring the original liner notes, detailed information on each track and a full storyline plus new liner notes by original conductor Sir Neville Marriner.
