WORLD PREMIERE RELEASE! Limited Edition! Thank you La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures! from Team Marvin Hamlisch!
La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the world premiere release of renowned composer Marvin Hamlisch’s (THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, SOPHIE’S CHOICE, D.A.R.Y.L.) original motion picture scores from two acclaimed Paramount Pictures dramas: 1980’s Best Picture winner ORDINARY PEOPLE, starring Donald Sutherland, Mary Tyler Moore and Timothy Hutton, and directed by Robert Redford, and 1973’s SAVE THE TIGER, starring Jack Lemmon (winner, Best Actor) and directed by John G. Avildsen.
ORDINARY PEOPLE — “Canon in D” — Pachelbel / Arr. by Marvin Hamlisch — (Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” as adapted by Marvin Hamlisch for Robert Redford’s searing drama ORDINARY PEOPLE, 1980.)
Marvin Hamlisch demonstrates remarkable prowess as a dramatic film composer, whether it’s expertly adapting Pachelbel’s “Cannon in D” for ORDINARY PEOPLE, or effectively evoking big-band and jazz nostalgia in SAVE THE TIGER – his scores are the perfect compliments to both great films.
The music of the movie that made you ask yourself… what exactly is an “ordinary” family? “Ordinary People”, winner of four Academy Awards in 1980 for Best Picture, Director Robert Redford, Screenplay Adaptation, and Supporting Actor Timothy Hutton:
