Press Release from La-La Land:
La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures and Universal Music Enterprises present a special 2-CD remastered and expanded release of Academy Award-Winning composer John Williams’ (E.T., SCHINDLER’S LIST, ALWAYS) original motion picture score to the 1995 big-screen romantic comedy/drama SABRINA directed by Sydney Pollack and starring Harrison Ford, Julia Ormond and Greg Kinnear. Maestro Williams’ sophisticated and deeply romantic original score, also featuring expert arrangements and new recordings of classic standards, provide the pitch-perfect, elegant backdrop to this successful re-make of the 1954 Billy Wilder-helmed film of the same title.
Expanded greatly beyond the 1995 SABRINA soundtrack album and including previously unreleased music, this deluxe, remastered presentation showcases the 53-minute film score presentation, plus alternate cues, on Disc One, while Disc Two, entitled “Party In The Moonlight – Songs of SABRINA,” presents sung versions of the songs “(In The) Moonlight,” performed by Sting, and “How Can I Remember?,” performed by Michael Dees, along with additional instrumental versions of those songs and a collection of well-known melodies conducted by Williams for the film’s various elegant party sequences.
Re-issue album producer Mike Matessino comments this rich collection of original score and the standalone “Party In The Moonlight – Songs of SABRINA,” will “bathe you in the moonlight,” whether it’s played at a party you’re hosting, or if you’re just listening and imagining one.
Produced, edited and mastered by Mike Matessino, this 2-CD release is limited to 3000 units and features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by Matessino and classic art design by Jim Titus.
