5.0 out of 5 stars Romeo and Juliet in words and music. 27 July 2010
By Malcolm TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
]Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo & Juliet

Italian Conductor/Composer Nino Rota provides the energetic and romantic soundtrack for this brilliant movie from Director, Franco Zeffirelli.

This CD contains the main musical themes from the movie and weaves in some of the major spoken lines from this Shakespearean masterpiece.
The two young lead actors, Leonard Whiting (Romeo) and Olivia Hussey (Juliet) are joined by the late great Robert Stephens as ( The Prince) and Milo O'Shea as ( Friar Laurence) in bringing to life the words and music from some of the most moving scenes of the film.

Some people may prefer to purchase the film which is still available on DVD but for those already familiar with the story of the two ill-fated teenagers the CD is a good memento,well worth the money.

This album is a must for anyone who has been or is a fan of DJ Simon Bates' "Our Tune". The "Our Tune" theme reoccurs throughout the recording and is indeed a theme of the music. There are, however, several other notable tracks, such as "The Death of Mercurio and Tybalt" and "The Ride from Mantua". I would thoroughly recommend this recording to any 40-something classical fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars More talking than music 4 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This Romeo and Juliet has always been one of my favourite movies, so I was thrilled when I found this CD. But, upon playing it I came to find that there is very few songs on the CD that are not covered up by dialogue- good if you want to hear the movie recited to you, not so good if you got the CD simply for thw music- it's usually covered up. Neat to listen to but don't buy it for the music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Look here for soundtrack without dialog 24 Feb 2006
By Charlie Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
(There is another soundtrack CD listed by Amazon. I guess that Amazon doesn't want links in here, so do a search on "Nino Rota romeo juliet". There will be several listed. Find the one that has Label: Silva). It has no dialog from the film. It's also conducted by Nino Rota. Two or three of the tracks are sung by various people.

Amazon does not stock it, although they list it. It seems to be "out of print". However there are various ways that people have been able to 'share' theirs. You may also be able to find one for sale by searching on the internet. It's worth trying to find.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music...but... 9 Feb 2005
By Randy Martens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...the problem is that 95% of this "soundtrack" is Shakespearian dialogue from the film - with the actual music playing subtly in the background.

I bought the CD presuming it was like virtually all other movie soundtracks - the original music from the film WITHOUT any dialogue, so I was disappointed. If I'd wanted the dialogue with the music as a mere backdrop, I'd have bought the DVD of the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Nostalgia 17 Oct 2003
By Thomas E. Reno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is a classic. Granted, it is mostly dialogue from the movie that is very well done. The score is beautiful and timeless and supports and punctuates the dialogue perfectly. I wore out my original LP of the soundtrack and now I'm glad to find it on CD to enjoy again. This soundtrack is not for everyone, but I think the dialogue is Romeo and Juliet the way Shakespeare meant it to be enhanced by a hauntingly beautiful score.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Gem of a CD! 15 April 2007
By J. A. Retzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Let me begin by saying that most of the previous reviews were negative because they simply failed to read the lable where it clearly states "Dialogue Highlights with Original Score." It's visible right there on the cover illustration.

The original LP was a relic of it's time, where Shakespearean films and faux-Shakespearean films (like Beckett) often spawned albums which showcased dramatic scenes and dialogue highlights, backed by the score.

The liner notes for this CD even say that it was a phenomenon when teenagers of the 60's would put aside their pop albums and devote 45 minutes in rapt attention listening to actors their own age performing Shakespeare (BTW: There was another pressing issued at the time -a deluxe four LP set with illustrated booklet in a box featuring the entire film's audio track, issued to schools and libraries).

My only gripe (and it's barely even that) is that the music used is often not that which accompanied the scene. There are moments where music from another scene has been repositioned to bridge the edited dialogue sequences. It makes for a better "flow" but I miss some of the familiar "hits" that Rota worked into his score to accompany certain lines (like the discordant squeal when Lady Capulet appears).

Summing up, this is an excellent CD and should actually be in every home library along with the DVD of the film. It is far superior in most respects to the Leo & Claire version under any circumstances. It may come across as 'Shakespeare Lite' to some purists, and it is not the MUSIC soundtrack album, but it stands very well on its own.

The sound is clear and "present" -marred only by the excessive dubbed-in sound of the original film's dialogue tracks. The stereo separation preserves the spread of the music as well as the 60's period left-right channel spread of sound effects, movement and dialogue.

For those who want the music only, there are two CDs out there you can look for (both of which I own).

The actual motion picture soundtrack in stereo is available on the Cloud Nine lable (deep red cover with a still of R&J touching palms at the feast).

A digital re-recording of the complete score was issued by Silva Screen and while it is very nice in that it presents every cue and in very clear sound, it fails to compare to the original in terms of performance (the vocals are awful) and lack of "feeling."

For the serious collector and R&J fan, you can also hunt down the deluxe 4 LP set [SWDR-289] Romeo & Juliet - The Complete Motion Picture Soundtrack Recording (which of course I also own). Transferred to CD it fits nicely on two CDs, so I don't know why some record company hasn't done so already.
