Yip Harburg: The Wizard Of Oz (PVG): Piano, Vocal, Guitar

Album Songbook | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Piano, Vocal and Guitar
Composer Yip Harburg
Composer Harold Arlen
Publisher Wise Publications
As one of Hollywood's most memorable films, and perhaps the greatest screen adaptation of a novel ever, the 1939 Wizard Of Oz brought the words to music, entrenching the songs in popular culture and ensuring their timelessness. With this Piano, Vocal and Guitar book, you can learn every song from the hit movie.

There were other film adaptations of L. Frank Baum’s book before and after it, but the 1939 version, starring Judy Garland, remains the one where visual imagination and unforgettable songs gave us a definitive version. What 'Yip' Harburg and Harold Arlen created was a film bursting with unforgettable musical sequences, putting their talented songwriting brains together to produce this most famous of musicals. Obviously, a song like Over The Rainbow needs no introduction, winning an Academy Award for resonating with our desire for something better, and becoming especially prescient given the world war about to erupt.

The rest of Harburg & Arlen’s songs for the film are just as evocative, instantly conjuring Dorothy’s legendary journey from Kansas to Oz and back. An absolute pleasure to perform, these songs belie their 75-year vintage and sound as fresh today as they did when audiences were first thrilled to hear them in the cinema. In this Wizard Of Oz sheet music song book, every song from the film is included, Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead, We're Off To See The Wizard, Follow The Yellow Brick Road, If I Only Had A Brain and If I Only Had A Heart, plus more.

Arranged for Piano, Vocal and Guitar, each fantastic song includes vocal melody, Piano parts, Guitar chord boxes and symbols and full lyrics. It really is everything you need to learn the songs exactly as they were played and sung in the film version. You are guaranteed to enjoy performing the famous songs, and you'll love discovering the more unfamiliar ones if you don't already know them by heart!

Useful if you want an overview of the songs.
Accompaniment too congested; not specifically arranged for piano. Too many fussy orchestration bits added.
