BuySoundtrax Records is proud to announce the release of The Music of Battlestar Galactica For Solo Piano a two-disc set featuring newly recorded piano performances by Joohyun Park of Bear McCreary’s groundbreaking score from the award-winning series on the SyFy channel from 2004-2009. All of the arrangements were done by McCreary and were featured in the Battlestar Galactica Songbook, released by Hal Leonard in 2011. The album features appearances by soprano Melanie Henley Heyn and McCreary himself, who performs “Kara Remembers” which was conceived as a track to be played by four hands, with Park. The package features liner notes by Randall Larson and unique artwork by frequent Battlestar Galactica vocalist Raya Yarbrough.

Variety called composer Bear McCreary’s score for Battlestar Galactica – the award-winning series on the SyFy channel from 2004-2009 – “the most innovative music on TV today,” and NPR said it “fits the action so perfectly, it’s almost devastating: (it’s) a sci-fi score like no other.”

The music from Battlestar Galactica has a rabid following. No fewer than six soundtrack albums have been released to date, all selling well and enthusiastically praised by critics. There have also been several live concerts featuring the music. In 2008, more than 1,000 fans attended two sold-out shows at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, with some fans flying in from as far as England and Australia. The following year, the Battlestar Galactica Orchestra performed three sold-out shows at the House of Blues in San Diego during Comic Con. In 2010, McCreary conducted the world premiere performance of the Battlestar Galactica Symphony, as part of the renowned Fimucite Film Music Festival in Tenerife, Spain. In 2011, McCreary again treated Spanish fans to the music as part of the Festival Internacional de Música de Cine in Ubeda. A ballet based on McCreary’s scores for the series premiered in 2009, performed by the dancers of the Theaterhagen in Hagen, Germany.
