Welp, looks like I'm gonna need an invite too. ;) Always wanted to see this in its proper form.

There is a protocol here for requesting invites and it is not to come in to the project thread to do it.  I've posted the link below.

The reason the protocol is in place is to keep these threads clear of off topic posts.  stretch is helping people out which is great but these members need to be sent to the proper thread for their requests.  The spleen  has seen so many hit n runners that it's not funny and it makes us here look bad for being the ones who just handed out the invites for them to do so.

Please respect the OP's thread and the site by using the link below.

Thank you.

So, is the dl a torrent? Do we need access to the myslpleen tracker?

I'm so happy about this. I own the director's cut because it's the only HD version available, but would really appreciate having this theatrical cut.

stretch! You're slacking!

All of you who asked for it, got it.

Hi,

I have the Spanish DVD with the Theatrical Cut. It also has the Spanish and German audio. Can any of these audios be added?

I came across the 2xLP vinyl gatefold album today, any interest, considering the discussions earlier in the thread about a high quality isolated score? My SL-1210 is in storage but perhaps someone else could take the album from me and do the honours...

This 2 disc 24 bit release sounds quite good to my ears. It's more complete than the original soundtrack release, but it still is missing some tracks from the More Music from Amadeus release.

 

Still no release has these recordings:

1. Salieri - Axur, Re d'Ormus: Act IV: Son queste le speranze

The opera that old Salieri plays on his piano, and then conducts when he reminisces. Only one non-Amadeus recording of this opera that I know of, and it was poorly recorded.

2. Mozart - Klavierstück in F-Dur, KV 33B

Song that Mozart plays blindfolded. You can find many recordings of this, but none match up with the film's timing.

3. Mozart - Die Entführung aus dem Serail - Aria:  Martern aller Arten

You can find the opera in many recordings, but not the english variant used for the film. The other arias were included in the soundtrack, but not this recording.

4. Mozart - Le Nozze di Figaro - Aria: Cinque, dieci, venti....

While this wasn't included in the soundtrack, the closest version is the 80's Solti recording, as it features Samuel Ramey who sang as Figaro on the Amadeus soundtrack.

5. Mozart - Piano Concerto no. 15: Third Movement

Can find very similar recordings just about anywhere.

6. Mozart -  Die Entführung aus dem Serail- Aria: Vivat Bacchus!

Played by Mozart during the masquerade party. I don't know of any recordings of it on the harpsichord or the clavichord.

7. Mozart - Die Zauberflöte - all arias

While the soundtrack features the overture and the queen of the night, the latter is in English in the film and German on the soundtracks. Then the other arias aren't even present on any soundtrack release.

I had thoughts to do an all period instruments audio edit of the film, to be more historically accurate, but I don't think it's worth the effort. It would probably be easier to do Immortal Beloved like that, since most of Beethoven's work has been given the historically informed treatment by guys like Gardiner and Immerseel. Mozart's got good releases from Immerseel, Gardiner, and Pinnock, but there's too much dialogue during the music to pull it off,  and like I said before many recordings are either near impossible to find a good replacement for, or in the case of Salieri's opera, are better left alone. I do really love Sir Neville's brilliant conducting on the pieces, so I'm fine with it all. After all, the movie isn't exactly historically accurate in the first place.

EDIT

No soundtrack has the Don Giovanni overture that plays at the intro, and when Leopold is standing outside of Mozart's door. Though you can find recordings by St. Martin in the Fields many times over.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

As grateful as I am for this, are there any plans to make a smaller filesize version of this, upload a torrent somewhere? I ask as I have not been able to download this; Mega keeps crashing before the download can fully complete.

EDIT: Disregard this, I managed to get it in the end. But I feel a smaller filesize version would still be good for people lacking in hard drive space or bandwidth to handle a 22 GB download.

I would love it if there was a smaller version of this. I have not requested the full size version because my speeds and HDD space are not great.

if anyone is kind enough to encode a 1080p version (with audio untouched) to below 8gb so it can be burnt to DVD9!

FWIW, an encode of such a small size would probably look better in 720p than 1080p, as scaling artifacts are less noticeable than over-compression artifacts, and this film is soft enough that, for the most part, you wouldn't be losing very much detail at 720p anyway.

Hello,

This looks like something I really want for my collection - had to be an insane amount of work!

Is there a copy with the BD audio?   One of the reasons I so desperately wanted this on BD was the audio.

Would love to add this to my collection. The Director's Cut is an abomination.

Audio Info is on page 1, first post.  I believe this project uses the best possible audio quality outside of the original laserdisc audio.  jimbotron235 has stated many times that if he is able to obtain the LD audio he will make it available.

I did use an edited version of the Blu-ray audio for version 1, but there were enough small changes made to the mix that I opted to go with the 5.1 mix from the theatrical cut DVD instead.

Would you mind sending me the link?  This sounds EXACTLY what I am looking for.  I saw the play a few weeks ago and remembered my quest to find this movie as you edited it :) Thanks!

It appears part 15 of this does not download as intended. Please take a look at this!
