Product Description

Sheet music. 1980. 3p.12.00x9.00. Music by John Barry. Christopher Reeve in a Rastar. From the motion picture: "Somewhere in Time" - Theme. PIANO SOLO MUSIC

Amazon.com

While director Jeannot Szwarc's 1980 time-travel romance nearly drowned in a sea of its own bathos, the score of the Christopher Reeve/Jane Seymour vehicle has become something of a word-of-mouth classic. Chalk that status up to the great English composer John Barry, whose lushly romantic score has largely overshadowed the film it was written for. Note to Titanic fans: if you liked the score for that film, you may fall in love with (or to) this one as well. Ironically, much of the action of Somewhere in Time takes place in 1912, the year the Titanic sank. --Jerry McCulley

John Barry, who composed some of the most memorable movie music ever recorded (James Bond theme; Born Free; Out Of Africa) created a soundtrack that in every way is superior than the film it underscored. Though the movie is a must for all romantics, with its heartbreaking premise of ill-fated time travel, the score works gorgeously on its own. A swirling, string-laden series of compositions built around a classic Rachmaninoff piece, this soundtrack is full of drama, emotion and beauty. It is one of those rare pieces of music that never ever grows old, and should be a part of everyone's music collection. Melancholy and evocative, this CD provides a wealth of romantic possibility, and has often underscored some of the most meaningful moments in my life.

The score for Somewhere in Time is truely amazing. I think it is one of the best scores ever written. It stays with you long after you have seen the film. The music is perfect throughout the movie. Each scene has exactly the right musical background. The most moving, for me, is the short piece of music that is heard in the scene where an aged McKenna is returning to her hotel room having met Collier. I find it some of the most moving music I have ever heard in a film. For me, I can listen to the score and visualize the scene in my mind, remembering dialog and even remembering clothes that were worn at the time. I think it is partly due to the score that this film has remained so popular over the years since it was released. The score made the movie memorable. It should be in everyone's film soundtrack library.

'Somewhere In Time' is the ultimate tragedy/romance film. Made in '80, it has been one of my favorite films and musical scores for the last 25 years. John Barry's soundtrack is elegant, intensely romantic and will bring the listener to tears whether they have seen the movie or not. To me that is definitely the final and most important test of the value of the music.

Definitely for the thoughtful, romantic and emotional personality. Turn out the lights, put the CD on and find a comfortable spot. The music will ellicite feelings and emotions that you never knew you had.

Back in 1989 I fell in love with a much younger man who played the violin. I had recently seen the movie "Somewhere in Time" and just had to have the soundtrack. My beautiful lover gave it to me as a birthday present. As I was listening to it, I heard the song behind me. As I turned I saw him playing along with the music on his violin. He had learned to play it as a special surprise to me. He did it so beautifully I cried. To this day, I still think of this wonderful man and his very special gift of Love everytime I listen to the haunting sounds from my cassette. It is almost worn out so I had to purchase a CD from Amazon.com. I can hardly wait for it to arrive. It is by far my most favorite musical score ever.

The music fits perfectly with "Somewhere in Time's" story. The music enables viewers to feel the depth of emotions that the characters are feeling. The soundtrack is absolutely gorgeous. The music of "Somewhere in Time" truly stays with you through time. There hasn't been one romantic movie that I've seen to surpass the quality and beauty of both the movie and the soundtrack. If you like baroque music and loved soundtracks from movies such as "The Red Violin," "The Legend of 1900," and "Out of Africa" chances are you will love this soundtrack.

Simply put, this is some of most beautifully crafted music you will ever find. From the original "Somewhere In Time" theme, to the rendition of the Rhapsody, to the beautiful track "A Day Together," one can hardly feel unsatisfied by the emotion that pours out in this music. An even bigger treat is to actually watch the film and see how the pieces of music are so brilliantly married to their corresponding scenes. I was fortunate enough to pick up the Gold Masterdisc version of this years back. Unfortunately it's now out of print but I highly recommend to lovers of this soundtrack that you search for it on
Ebay because the transfer and sound quality is magnificent.
How powerful is this music? To me, it almost sounds at times that it came down from heaven itself. It's more than music. It's a journey into the soul.

Having listen to more than hundreds of soundtracks, as well as many orchestral music and classical music, I dare say that not many pieces of them had captured my heart. And among them, Somewhere In Time was one of the best I have ever listen in my life.
I have this song played by many orchestra, including the Cincinnati Pops, Royal Philharmonic, and The City of Prague, The Royal Scottish, as well as some Piano solo version. However, the original one still worth having in my huge collection of Somewhere In Time. For a word, check it out and hear it yourself.
PS. I'm currently searching for the version from London Symphony. I have no idea if the LSO has ever play this or not. So, if anyone hear about that, please tell me. Thank you.

Never has a movie produced such beautiful music before than that of "Somewhere In time." Besides the classical pieces by Rachmoninof, John Barry's compositions truly haunt the soul with an unrequited yearning that the characters in the film had for each other. You can see the characters in the music. So few movies have ever contained music that evoked such rememberance than this film.
This is truly a romantic album. Great for any occasion, the music will full your day with beautya nd tranquility. Buy this CD and you will not regret your purchase.
