Maurice Jarre created a sound-track classic-for-all-time . . . and for all times with the soundtrack for the 1965 film "Dr. Zhivago". This was an epic movie of an epic love and demanded an epic musical score. This soundtrack transcended that demand. While it was the perfect accompnyment to every scene of the film . . .it stands on its own as well, even now almost forty years later.

The recurring "theme" - "Lara's Theme" (popularly known as 'Somewhere My Love'- as lyrics were added for pop radio) is today, instantly recognizable to everyone. (I can't hear that theme without "falling in love all over again" with Julie Cristie, who played the role of Lara - or who WAS Lara!)

Another memorable track is the "Kontakion" from the Kievan Russian Orthodox Requiem Liturgy. This hymn is emotionally moving in every Eastern Orthodox funeral or memorial service for the dead . . . it was just as emotional in the film setting as the young boy Yuri (Zhivago) attends his mother's funeral and interment. Just listening to the track today, brings memories of that scene . . . and to any Orthodox familiar with his/her own spiritual tradition, evokes prayerful memories of every funeral of any loved ones who have departed this life. This track alone makes this disc worthwhile owning.

This 1995 "Thirtieth Anniversary Edition" is expanded to include much music hich was not included on the oiginal 1995 release . . . all of it worthy. Also, three variations of "Lara's Theme" (not on the film score) are also added "bonus tracks" - one jazz, one rock, and one swing -- all interesting and enjoyable, though out of the film context . . .but they demonstrate just how adaptable and viable "Laras Theme" actually is and can be.

After watching the movie "Doctor Zhivago" (which I recommend, it was a lovely movie), I just had to go out and buy the soundtrack to it. Maurice Jarr's score is breathtaking. The balalaikas are wonderful, it adds a very Russian feel to it all. My favorite piece is the 'Main Title' and the other slower, more romantic tracks, which feature the famous "Lara's Theme." A nice edition for Doctor Zhivago fans or just for anyone who enjoyed the music. It won the Academy Award in 1965. Get the 30th Anniversary CD, since it has some interesting facts and also has some pieces that were cut out of the finished movie.

Maurice Jarre's stunning score to the film DOCTOR ZHIVAGO ranks as one of the finest soundtracks ever composed. Grand, memorable, and powerful, Jarre's acheivement captures the agony of revolutionary Russia and complements brilliantly the epic production of Metro Goldwyn Mayer.
Jarre's score involves a use of several leitmotifs, Lara's Theme being the most famous, which bind each piece into the larger whole of the film. That Jarre was able to accomplish this is all the more surprising because, as he states in the CD booklet, he had only 6 weeks to compose the film score.
The production of the soundtrack is crystal-clear and strong. The drums are crisp and reverberant, and the elements of the orchestra is balanced on the recording.
For those who loved the film and its score, DOCTOR ZHIVAGO: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is essential

If not number one, Maurice Jarre's sweeping, beautiful score for David Lean's "Doctor Zhivago" is certainly in the top three of the greatest film scores ever composed. Lean and Jarre had already proven a magical combination on their previous collaboration - "Lawrence of Arabia". But with "Doctor Zhivago", Jarre would arguably make his finest creation, and certainly his most famous - the ubiquitous, sweepingly romantic "Lara's Theme".

Rarely, if ever, has a score captured the feel and emotions of a film so well. The Overture alone showcases the film's juxtaposition between the romantic and personal, and the inevitable, tragic tide of history. The score is unbelievably complex, ranging from tragic to upbeat to haunting to stirring. It is truly a remarkable achievement, and the score is plenty effective on its own.

The CD features a plethora of highly memorable pieces. While the more critical might grow weary of the umpteenth rendition of "Lara's Theme", this reviewer wouldn't, and in any case might point the cynic to the many other cues on the soundtrack. The early segments of the soundtrack contain mostly indifferent incidental music, but around track 10 the show starts to kick into high gear. The haunting "They Began to Go Home", "After Deserters Kill the Colonel", and "Yuri is Taken Prisoner By the Red Partisans" convey the tragic, unavoidable violence of Russia's civil war. Anyone who wants something other than romance would hardly find a more stirring and violent contrast than here. Much of the incidental music is surprisingly good too - the heart-rending "Kontakion", "Evening Bells-Moscow Bells", and the ominous "Yevgraf Snaps His Fingers" are highlights.

Intense, memorable soundtrack. I had no idea this common tune had originated from a contemporary film. In specific regards to "Lara's Theme", it's instantly memorable. Really stuck in my mind after I finished viewing the film.
Classic scores, classic alumn.
