Overview

Yentl

Billed as both a Barbra Streisand album and as an original motion picture soundtrack, Yentl contains the songs, sung by Streisand and written by Michel Legrand and Alan and Marilyn Bergman, that the character played by Streisand sings as internal monologues in the film, sometimes with spoken dialogue interspersed. (The album is filled out by "studio versions" of two of the songs, "The Way He Makes Me Feel" and "No Matter What Happens," played on contemporary electronic instruments, rather than in the orchestral settings used for the rest of the songs.) With such a thematic base, the music has an unusual consistency, and written specifically for Streisand, it makes use of her emotional expressiveness, phrasing, and timing as a singer. But it was also written as a complement to the film and on its own comes across as a group of isolated musical plot highlights rather than as a coherent song cycle. (Yentl won an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score.)

I have never heard an album that was sung and written so well. The movie was great, but the soundtrack is truly awesome. This album just blew me away.

I JUST LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE SONGS FROM YENTL. I SAW THE MOVIE WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT AND ENJOYED IT TO THE MAX. SINCE THE AGE OF 10, I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF BARBARA STREISAND. I AM NOW 35 YEARS OLD. IF NO ONE ELSE BUYS HER MUSIC, SHE CAN BE SURE THAT I DEFINITELY WILL.
