This boxed set of the complete soundtrack from the phenomenal Academy Award-winning motion picture, Amadeus, was released in conjunction with the Mozart Bicentennial in 1991.
The recordings were previously available in two separate packages—a double-CD set which won a Grammy for "Best Classical Recording” and has reached the one-million (platinum) sales mark in the U.S., and a second single-CD volume that is now nearly gold. For the box release, the music was resequenced, the program notes updated and expanded, and the booklet illustrated with many unpublished stills from the film. The success of the soundtrack recordings is unprecedented: an album of authentic classical music has for the first time reached gold-record status in the U.K., Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, Brazil,Sweden, France, and Canada. That aside, the Amadeus soundtrack remains a thrilling collection of music.
