July 27, 2019 ~ Daily Listening Assignment

 

Today’s piece is Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss. It was made popular in the 1968 Stanley Kubrick science-fiction movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The organ part in this snippet looks pretty easy.

 

Just the main theme for piano

One-quarter speed

 

A piano reduction of the whole orchestral score

Tee orchestra playing the entire word

 

Just the opening of 2001: A Space Odyssey

The Blue Danube Waltz composed by Johann Strauss (no relation) was also used in this movie.
