Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Based on the best selling novel by Nicholas Sparks ("A Walk To Remember", "Message In A Bottle"), "The Notebook" is the story of Noah and Allie, teenage lovers torn apart by WWII and Allie's parents' demands to marry a respectable lawyer. After 14 years apart, they meet again and rekindle their true love. Starring Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, James Garner, and Gena Rowlands. The soundtrack is a propelling force. In addition to classic WWII era pieces, Aaron Zigman's score suites enhance the record with beautifully dramatic themes. Score performed by the Hollywood Studio Symphony.

Amazon.com

Based on Nicholas Sparks' novel, director Nick Cassavetes film spins the bittersweet tale of a 60-year romance, as seen from the polar perspectives of its promising youth and the travails of an old age cursed by Alzheimer's. Its soundtrack effectively echoes those polar dramatic concerns, with composer Aaron Zigler's gentle orchestral score largely giving voice to the character's melancholy present, while a rich, well-chosen slate of vintage material by Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller imparts a restless energy to their youth. There's a certain schmaltz to much of Zigman's work here, yet cues like "House Blues/The Porch Dance.." and "Noah's Journey" argue he's achieved something more elusive than mere melodramatic wallpaper with the deceivingly difficult task at hand; it can't be easy to have your work seasoned with the likes of Ellington's sassy "Alabamy Home" and Goodman's still-vibrant "One O'Clock Jump." Sharply contrasting versions of "I'll Be Seeing You" by Holiday and Jimmy Durante bookend the soundtrack, perfectly evoking the story's alternating shades of hope and fading nostalgia and framing Zigman's understated work in the bargain. --Jerry McCulley

I had my grandmother listen to it and she loved it.

The soundtrack is enjoyable even if you haven't seen the movie (of course, if you have you'll love it even more!)

FYI: The sheet music to The Notebook Main Title just became available this week at Musicnotes ([...] Just go to their main page and do a search on Aaron Zigman. It looks like the song is in C Major and easy to play. It's for piano, but I'm sure it could be adapted to string instruments. I know this is a place to review the album's content, but since so many people were asking about the sheetmusic, I thought I would post this.

I love the really really old songs they used for this movie. "I'll Be Seeing You" by Billie Holiday has always been one of my favourite.

It's a shame they left out the song Allie plays on the piano. Someone was asking about it here; this is how it appears on the credits:

"Prelude for Piano, Op. 28, No. 4"

Written by Frédéric Chopin

Performed by Robert Thies

Hope you learn it well. ;)

The movie was great enjoyed it. I noticed many people looking for or wanting more information on the Nina Gordon song "Tonight and the rest of my life". If this song sounds familiar it could be because you heard it in another movie (ie. Captian Corelli's Mandolin, Chocolat) or you have heard some of her other work with "Veruca Salt".

The cd "Tonight and the rest of my life" is a title on warner brothers released in 2000.

Also, worth noting, as I too was dissapointed that the song failed to appear on the soundtrack cd. The song is included in a exclusive dvd/cd product from walmart.

You can also find other recordings and general information at her website [...]

This is a lovely soundtrack for a beautiful film.
The piano piece (unfortunately not included) that Allie plays by heart is Prelude for Piano, Op. 28, No. 4 by Chopin.
Its quite simple to play as far as the notes go but harder to play well. You can get the music free online if you go to [...]
Here's a direct link for anyone interested:

Enjoy!

Why would they omit the Chopin piece that she plays several times in the movie? Otherwise, it is a beautiful and diverse soundtrack.
