Thomas Newman’s imaginative soundtrack brings to life the aquatic world of Pixar’s latest adventure. “Kelpcake” catches the twinkle of sunlight through the ocean surface, as well as an undertow’s strong but unseen current. True to its title, “Open Ocean” is full of floating textures that shift from sharp and rapid to ethereal over the course of the arrangement. Tension builds on “One Year Later,” but Newman always returns to passages of reflection. Jon Brion’s woozy themes are a touchstone for “Unforgettable,” in which Sia’s elegant voice dances with a undulating string arrangement—an ingenious reinvention of a familiar favorite.

Stevie Wonder had a record-breaking year in 1984 thanks to the song I Just Called To Say I Love You from this soundtrack. The song won an Academy Award, went to number one on charts around the world, and became Motown’s all time biggest-selling single internationally. The soundtrack album, containing other songs from Wonder and featuring Dionne Warwick, sold a million copies in the US and was certified gold or platinum in several other countries. This wasn’t Wonder’s first foray into movie music: he had previously recorded the soundtrack to the documentary The Secret Life Of Plants in 1979. Years later, he enjoyed considerable success in the early 1990s with his soundtrack to director Spike Lee’s film Jungle Fever.

Everything’s Beautiful brings Miles Davis’ sound into the 21st century, blending a diverse group of master takes and outtakes from across Miles’ incredible tenure with Columbia Records (1955-1985) with original reinterpretations. Robert Glasper produced the collaboration. “I didn’t want to do just a remix record,” Glasper noted when discussing the 11-song set. “My idea was to show how Miles inspired people to make new art”. Knowing that “Miles didn’t have one audience,” Glasper recruited a legion of diverse guest artists to add to the magic of the project including familiar collaborators like R&B musicians Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Bilal and KING. They are joined by British soul singer-songwriter Laura Mvula; hip-hop producer Rashad Smith; Grammy-nominated Australian neo-soul quartet Hiatus Kaiyote, rapper/producer Illa J; jazz guitarist John Scofield, who collaborated with Davis; and the legendary Stevie Wonder.

Recorded: June 9,10 & december 1,2 2012, Goldener Saal, Musikverein, Wien

Recorded at the Golden Hall in the Musikverein Vienna in 2012, this is two of the most important works of Mozart’s ‘middle’ period that Harnoncourt has never recorded with a period-instrument orchestra before. Harnoncourt is well known for his unique interpretation of Mozart and this is reflected by the highly flexible playing and phrasing from the orchestra. This album marks the 60th anniversary of the collaboration between Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus Wien.
