REVIEW

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (ENGLISH)

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (John Williams). Again John Williams composes the music for the second alone adventure of Kevin McCallister, this time lost in New York and again facing the "wet bandits". Accidentally, Kevin finds both evil-doers who assaulted his house a couple of years before, after having escaped from jail.

Due to the unexpected success that the music of the first movie had, for the second one an album of songs, besides Williams' score, were prepared, to extend and make profitable the musical dimension of the film. And as it happened with Home Alone, the soundtrack includes 2 sung themes with lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, in this case Christmas Star and Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas.

Ten years after the premiere of Home Alone 2, Varèse Sarabande re-edited the soundtrack in an ambitious edition of 2 discs and 100 minutes of duration. And ten years later, in 2012, La La Land Records did the same thing, extending the edition up to 113 minutes. Both editions were limited to 3000 copies, contained extensive booklets signed by the same person, the editor and producer of soundtracks Mike Matessino.

As a curiosity, the 2012 edition (as well as the album of songs edited in 1992) included the track My Christmas Tree, composed by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman.

Solo en casa 2: Perdido en Nueva York (ESPAÑOL)

Solo en casa 2: Perdido en Nueva York (John Williams). De nuevo John Williams compone la música para la segunda aventura en solitario de Kevin McCallister, esta vez perdido en Nueva York y de nuevo haciendo frente a los "bandidos mojados". Por casualidad, Kevin se encuentra a los dos maleantes que asaltaron su casa un par de años antes, tras haberse escapado éstos de la cárcel en la que estaban recluidos.

Dado el inesperado éxito que tuvo la música de la primera película, para la segunda se preparó un álbum de canciones, además del score de Williams, para ampliar y rentabilizar la dimensión musical del film. Y tal como sucedió con Solo en Casa, la banda sonora incluye 2 temas cantados con letras de Leslie Bricusse, en este caso Christmas Star y Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas.

Diez años después del estreno de Solo en Casa 2, Varèse Sarabande reeditó la banda sonora en una ambiciosa edición de 2 discos y 100 minutos de duración. Y diez años más tarde, en 2012, La La Land Records hizo lo mismo, ampliando la edición hasta los 113 minutos. Ambas ediciones estaban limitadas a 3000 copias, y contenían extensos libretos firmados por la misma persona, el editor y productor de bandas sonoras Mike Matessino.

Como curiosidad, la versión de 2012 (así como el álbum de canciones editado en 1992) incluían la pista My Christmas Tree, compuesta por Alan Menken y Jack Feldman.
