With thirteen nominations for an Academy Award, moviegoers are flocking to see this film based on a story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, the film clocks in at almost three hours long and chronicles the life of a man born in his eighties who ages backwards.
The soundtrack for Benjamin Button includes original compositions by Alexandre Desplat, and offers a rich mix of jazz, blues and gospel undertones. Here’s a piece of movie trivia for you, too. The piano piece that Benjamin learns how to play in the movie is The Bethena Rag by Scott Joplin.
We invite you to take a musical journey with Benjamin as you experience music from pre-1920 to the late twentieth century. Now you can play sheet music from Benjamin Button and enjoy this musical look across time.
