The official description of THE SOUND OF MUSIC soundtrack and live TV event is as follows: "Sony Masterworks proudly releases the companion soundtrack to NBC's live broadcast of "The Sound of Music," based on the classic stage musical.

"The Sound of Music," set in the 1930's before and during "Anschluss" when the Nazi's annexed Austria, is based on the romantic true story of Maria von Trapp, an aspiring nun who leaves the abbey to become a governess for the widower Capt. von Trapp's seven children. She soon finds herself falling in love with her employer and questioning her religious calling.
