5.0 out of 5 stars Evocative, 24 Nov 2006
This review is from: The First Man of the Zither Plays "The Third Man Theme" & Other Original Recordings (Audio CD)
From the first note I am there. There is something beautiful but sinister about this music, it carries with it the atmosphere of menace that pervades the film. I always love the music in the film and it works really well on its own, there are very few soundtracks that are worth having, Amalie, Chocolat, Bellville Rendez Vous but this is the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning Zither playing by Anton Karas., 8 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The First Man of the Zither Plays "The Third Man Theme" & Other Original Recordings (Audio CD)
There have been a few cd's released of the so called sound track to that wonderful film "The Third Man", but they have all been behind the voices of the actors. Now at last the origonal sound recordings with no talk overs. wonderful zither playing by a master . All the sound track plus other takes and recordings . A must for romantics, lovers of the film, and the zither.

My mum is a great fan of this music - particularly the Third Man theme. She was overjoyed when I gave it to her on her birthday last year! Thanks Amazon for stocking this. I had been meaning to get it for her for a long time. Arrived in 2 or 3 days and was of top quality

What a great sound and a nice collection of zither music with the evocative theme tune to the Third Man being the out and out best but some other nice tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars I never knew the Old Vienna, before the war..........., 13 Dec 2012

This review is from: The First Man of the Zither Plays "The Third Man Theme" & Other Original Recordings (Audio CD)
A musical evokation of dangerous times, together with their difficulties and their joys. This comes through the music of Anton
Karas , his zither and evokes images from Carol Reed's 1949 film " Der Dritte Mann."

Another bit of history, no-one plays zither anywhere near as good as Anton Karas does.He makes it throb and almost sound like many instruments all at once. you will know the Third Man theme and a few other tracks as well but there are lots more. Some from the incidental background music of the film, others not heard before. Im sure there are many people who will be delighted to have this cd.Its all the zither music you will ever need.

4.0 out of 5 stars evocative of the film and a time, 4 April 2013

This review is from: The First Man of the Zither Plays "The Third Man Theme" & Other Original Recordings (Audio CD)
for those who either knew the time and place or for those who can remember the film and the sequences the zither reminds one of a cafe culture that sadly nolonger exists

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music., 25 Sep 2011

This review is from: The First Man of the Zither Plays "The Third Man Theme" & Other Original Recordings (Audio CD)
Before I was born the theme tune for "The Third Man" was released as a single. It was a big hit.
It was so popular that 10 years later when I was an infant, it was still played regularly by BBC radio and the public.
The theme tune and the rest of the soundtrack music are on this CD.
Zither music is unusual and delightful. It can be haunting and sinister, yet also forceful. It can be sad, but also happy and pleasant.
This CD contains all emotions in music and that is it's beauty.
It is rare to find a complete film soundtrack that is totally enjoyable... but this fits that bill.
