Official reissue of the celebrated John Barry score. When first faced with the print of the film, Barry famously rejected director Sydney Pollack's notion that it should be accompanied with indigenous melodies.

    Official reissue of the celebrated John Barry score. When first faced with the print of the film, Barry famously rejected director Sydney Pollack's notion that it should be accompanied with indigenous melodies. Instead, he hit on the far more elemental (and far more powerful) notion that the music should score the emotion of the characters at the center of the film.

    The landscape meanwhile could always speak for itself. A skeptical Pollack hesitantly agreed but the gamble paid off: Barry's approach to Out of Africa proved to be one of the most astute dramatic decisions of his career, resulting in a score that punctuated the turgid, navel-gazing gloom of the film to evoke real compassion and emotion for the characters.

    The composer won the Oscar for Best Original Score for his work. The film received a total of 7 Oscars, including Best Director and Best Picture.
