Alfred Music Publishing, a leading provider of high-quality music products since 1922, is proud to announce the release of the most authentic and complete collection of sheet music from "The Wizard of Oz" ever published with The Wizard of Oz: 70th Anniversary Deluxe Songbook. "The Wizard of Oz", with its enchanting story and memorable songs, has become a cherished tradition in millions of households. The film's groundbreaking musical score includes a number of unforgettable classics, and is considered one of the masterpieces in film music history. Towering among the songs is "Over the Rainbow," named "Song of the Century" on a list compiled by both the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the National Endowment for the Arts in 2001. Three years later, it was selected as the number one movie song of all time for the American Film Institute's "100 Years...100 Songs" chart. The Wizard of Oz: 70th Anniversary Deluxe Songbook features all of the classic songs by E.Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen plus never-before-published "character themes" by Academy-Award winning composer Herbert Stothart, the complete "Munchkinland Musical Sequence," and the song "The Jitterbug," which was deleted from the original film. Each song is presented in its original key, utilizing rare MGM studio manuscripts and the original motion picture soundtrack. As a bonus, this unique collector's item includes two songs from the 1903 Broadway musical production of "The Wizard of Oz", with lyrics by original "Oz" author L. Frank Baum. These songs have not been published in over a century. The songbook also contains dozens of original production stills and publicity photos, an essay on the story behind the songs and score, and biographies of the composers. In addition to the piano/vocal songbooks, Alfred Music Publishing is thrilled to publish instrumental solos of the entire catalog of charming and captivating music featured in "The Wizard of Oz". Additional easy piano, 5-finger piano, and big-note piano songbooks plus level 2-3 play-alongs for flute, clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, horn in F, trombone, violin, viola, and cello are coming soon. Alfred's current catalog includes performance pieces for orchestra, concert band, marching band, and choir. The Wizard of Oz: 70th Anniversary Deluxe Songbook is now available for $19.95.
