Ken Burns THE WAR Soundtrack Released on Legacy + Podcast!!
b>Legacy Records presents the release of THE WAR soundtrack in stores now in conjunction with the PBS documentary, THE WAR , a seven-part series. In conjunction with the series, THE WAR soundtrack album is in stores NOW on Legacy Recordings, a division of SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.
Burns has now released a podcast that will help illuminate his passion for this project.
THE WAR tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greatest cataclysm in history, and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives.
Music is an integral element in the success of the award-winning documentary films produced and directed by Ken Burns. Every musical track has been selected to underscore events or themes in the film. There is an eclectic mix of vintage era jazz (Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Nat ‘King’ Cole), popular singers (Kay Starr, Bing Crosby with guitarist Les Paul), classical works by composers Aaron Copland, Sir William Walton, and modernist Arvo Pärt, and evocative performances by Edgar Meyer (and friends) and Yo-Yo Ma & The Silk Road Ensemble.
Along with THE WAR soundtrack album, Legacy will also issue three companion collections:
Sentimental Journey: Hits From The Second World War
I’m Beginning To See The Light: Dance Hits From The Second World War
Songs Without Words: Classical Music From The War
THE WAR soundtrack album and the three companion albums are being sold individually. Theyare also packaged together in a special commemorative box set featuring a 24-page booklet essay by Ken Burns interspersed with 17 rare and moving images from the period, and a PBS Series Viewers Guide.
