Walt Disney Records recently released the digital original motion picture soundtrack for Oz The Great and Powerful. Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman reunites with director Sam Raimi for Oz The Great and Powerful after composing original scores for the filmmaker’s blockbuster hits Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Darkman and A Simple Plan.
Elfman said, “I didn’t really go in with any sense of what I wanted to do other than just to follow the film. It was incredibly clear because the characters and what they were doing, and what their quests were, and what needed to be done, were all laid out, so I fell into it very easily.” Elfman employed a traditional orchestra for the film to give the music a classic feel. He says, "Sam did want a very strong, traditional feel to this movie. I think there has always been the feeling that we’d like to try to give it a classic feel and a timelessness."
