Director Martin Scorsese's Hugo, adapted from the novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick, presents composer Howard Shore, working on his sixth Scorsese film, with distinct requirements that he fulfills ably. The story is set in 1930s Paris, and it is concerned with magical and childlike elements, also taking in the early days of cinema. For this most lighthearted (and most Gallic) of Scorsese efforts, Shore appropriately suggests French moods everywhere. The basic way he achieves this is by using two different sets of musicians simultaneously on most cues. There is a full orchestra, to be sure, but it tends to occupy the background of the sound picture…

Cool disc for Jerry Goldsmith fans! World premiere release in any format of complete original soundtrack from 1968 mod-era spy tale set within British Intelligence, directed by David Greene, starring Dirk Bogarde, Susannah York, Sir John Gielgud. World of then-high tech computers, soaring IQ's, secret codes and staff of crackerjack decoders captured by composer with meld of snappy rhythm, cool melody. Main theme, rooted firmly in major key, remains one of Goldsmith's most infectious. In balance is richly expressive trumpet line for more romantic side of tale. Mystery, suspense also plays solid role, especially in latter cues. Entire score presented from mono elements as heard in picture, courtesy Paramount Pictures. CD also offers cool extra treat! After exhaustive search, actual multi-track stereo masters for original 1968 Dot label album surface, courtesy UMG and Geffen, allowing first ever licensed release on CD. Stunning audio quality allows terrific presentation of classic record made by Goldsmith (and Dot producer Tom Mack) way back when! While a mere 25 minutes long, their album encapsulated major thematic material beautifully. And another extra!
Marvin Hamlisch - The Swimmer: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1968) [Silver Age Classics, 2006]

Soundtrack, Score | Label: Film Score Monthly | # FSM vol.9 no.5 | Time: 00:35:58

Marvin Hamlisch's first feature film score – written while he was still a college student – remains one of the great debuts in soundtrack history: a work of remarkable maturity, 1968's The Swimmer is rich in contrast and scope, communicating the film's uncommon emotional complexity in stunningly clear detail. Hamlisch proves a master of both style and mood, shifting effortlessly from the poignant simplicity of the main theme to the effervescent jazz cut "Easy Four/Bubbles" to the soaring orchestral flourishes of "Hurdles." Like the new generation of filmmakers who redefined American cinema in the late '60s and early '70s, Hamlisch achieves a note-perfect balance between tradition and innovation, acknowledging the past masters of movie music even as he expands the parameters of the form. Film Score Monthly's superlative reissue includes excellent liner notes and a series of stills from the film. Highly recommended.

Composer Hans Zimmer's jaunty theme for Guy Ritchie's muscular 2009 re-imagining of the world's most recognizable super-detective, Sherlock Holmes, dutifully reflected the newly installed humor and 21st century action star pathos that the director brought to the character. For Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Zimmer once again infused the series with wit and wickedness, stacking his already established themes with an effusive Romanian flair, reflecting the addition of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace's turn as a Gypsy fortune teller.

Since The Big Chill, too often directors and film producers have taken the easy way out in creating soundtracks for their big-budget Hollywood movies by licensing a couple handfuls of hits either from the catalog of yesteryear's pop giants or from hungry up-and-comers. It's a formula almost. Thankfully there are still film scores, though they all seem to be written by the same five men. Both of these poles sees to lie in stark contrast to Robert Rodriguez's approach to creating an audio environment both to accompany and stand apart from his films. On Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Rodriquez took matters into his own hands and procured a series of rather obscure existing tracks that viscerally underscore defined themes in his movie – such as Juno Reactor's "Pistolero," Brian Setzer's ass-kicking "Malagueña," and Manu Chao's "Me Gustas Tu." He also commissioned several tracks to actors and wrote others for his players. Thus Tito Larriva's haunting "Flor de Mal," or Johnny Depp and friends under the moniker Tonto's Giant Nuts offer "Sands Theme," while Rubén Blades and Antonio Banderas helped to flesh out their own character's themes musically as well as dramatically.

Critics and fans alike have fallen in love with the film Philomena as well as its captivating score by Alexandre Desplat, which is now nominated for Best Original Score at the 2014 Academy Awards. Philomena is an emotional story inspired by true events, tinged with both tragedy and comedy, about two very different people who join forces for a remarkable journey. They are seeking to uncover the truth behind a heart-breaking story that has remained amystery for half a century. Legendary Oscar-winning actress Dame Judi Dench (Skyfall, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Shakespeare in Love) stars in the title role as Philomena Lee along side one of Britain's leading comics Steve Coogan (The Look of Love) as Martin Sixsmith, with two-time Oscar nominated Stephen Frears directing. Accompanying the film's remarkablestory of Philomena's extraordinary search for her long lost son, is composer Alexandre Desplat's emotionally riveting score which evokes the compelling narrative of human love and loss that ultimately celebrates life, showing thatthere is laughter even in the darkest places. Desplat's wide usage of instruments gives the film its emotional resonance with both enchantment and a beautifully touching heart.

No matter the lack of critical popular acclaim for director Akiva Goldsman's adaptation of Mark Helprin's novel Winter's Tale, the Hans Zimmer/ Rupert Gregson-Williams score is utterly worthy of the film, and also the novel itself. Full of classical and electronic textures, ambiences, and melodies that wed both the lyric themes of 19th century folk and classical music to the early 20th, these 14 cues are, by turns, delicate and dramatic, melancholy and romantic, spare and elegant. As a piece of music it stands on its own. The final track here is singer/songwriter K.T. Tunstall's "Miracle," written with A.R. Rahman specifically for the film. While it is dramatically different from the rest of the score, since it is the final track, it sums up the transcendent nature of the narrative.
