4) The Sound of Music – Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, arranged by Robert Russell Bennett
Fifty years ago, the movie version of The Sound of Music debuted to mixed reviews. One critic called it “romantic nonsense,” while another saw “three hours of visual and vocal brilliance.” Audiences loved it, though – by late 1966 it had become the highest-grossing movie of all time, which it remained for five years. Based on a memoir by Maria von Trapp, the movie (and the earlier stage play) tell the story of Maria’s work as governess to a large family in Austria on the brink of World War II. Let’s see if we can bring the foothills alive with The Sound of Music.
