Paramount Pictures, Dreamworks Pictures, Universal Music Special Markets and Amblin Entertainment proudly present the 20th Anniversary Limited Edition CD reissue of John Williams’ Academy Award Nominated original score to the 1998 feature film SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, directed by Steven Spielberg (who received an Oscar for helming) and starring Tom Hanks, Edward Burns and Matt Damon. One of the renowned composer’s finest works, Mr. Williams’ powerful orchestral score is a deeply affecting memorial to all who gave the ultimate sacrifice on D-Day. The composer’s masterwork finds perfect pitch throughout this landmark film, whether underscoring the horrors of war or the emotional and unbreakable bonds of brotherhood forged within its fury.
Reissue Producer Mike Matessino sourced this release from the original album master (and provided slight cleanup). Approved by both the composer and the director, the presentation contains two additional cues that were revised in the film AFTER the original soundtrack album was completed. (These revised cues derive from Shawn Murphy’s original digital mix files). This special release features exclusive, all-new liner notes by Matessino and brand new art design by Jim Titus.
