While we wait for Scoop to arrive on DVD, relive the movie again with the CD soundtrack, featuring pieces from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Suite and The Nutcracker among others. I’ve got three copies of the CD to give away (plus bonus mini posters), courtesy of Decca Records. Here’s the scoop on the music, from Decca:

Scoop is the new contemporary comedy from writer/director Woody Allen who stars in the film with Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson, and Ian McShane. Scoop is the second consecutive picture that the filmmaker has set and shot in London (following Match Point). The soundtrack includes several classical tracks hand-picked by Mr. Allen.

Mr. Allen reports that he chose the music based on “his instincts about what would work in the film.” Capturing the playful spirit of the film, the soundtrack’s lush orchestrations and quick tempo complement the mysterious motif of the story. The soundtrack consists almost entirely of beautiful classical music by Tchaikovsky, Grieg and Johann Strauss – a unique assemblage for any soundtrack, especially one from a movie not entirely about classical music itself. These timeless melodies from The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Peer Gynt will be recognized with pleasure by every listener.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the CD at Amazon.

WINNERS: David, Brandy, and Doug
