Thanks to pleas from many aficionados, Criterion is releasing on July 19, 2011 the Blu-ray and DVDs of THE MUSIC ROOM. They will include the following :

•New digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
•Satyajit Ray (1984), a feature documentary by Shyam Benegal that chronicles Ray’s career and includes interviews with the filmmaker, family photographs, and extensive clips from his films
•New interview with filmmaker Mira Nair
•New interview in which Ray biographer Andrew Robinson discusses the making of The Music Room and the film’s cultural significance
•Excerpt from a 1981 French roundtable discussion with Ray, film critic Michel Ciment, and filmmaker Claude Sautet
•New and improved English subtitle translation
•PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Philip Kemp as well as reprints of a 1963 essay by Ray and a 1986 interview with the director about the film’s music

This clearly calls for a celebration. Let's hope Criterion will also release other films by Ray.

Blu Ray is good quality.

Yes. Thanks to Criterion for releasing this classic! The transfer is superb for a film from 1958.
