This music is soothing, relaxing and somewhat whimsical. It's perfect for the movie or just to listen to while relaxing. It definitely evokes thoughts of oceanic themes.
Original music from Season Two of hit ABC TV series! Following in footsteps of Season One music (also available on Intrada), Isham expands upon ideas, styles established earlier, adds dynamic new themes into mix. Sequences grow larger, more expansive. Action, magic, darkness, romance, fantasy all part of composer's musical realm. As stories bring in new crossovers between worlds of Storybrooke, Neverland, Enchanted Forest and others, Isham develops new material with keen sense of melodic, dramatic flair. He even creates new musical language for post-curse magical Storybrook. Music plays strong role throughout ABC series, often becomes another character in each episode. Season Two CD also premieres short but imposing main title. Album produced by composer. Michael Nowak conducts Hollywood Studio Symphony.
Intrada is proud to announce the release of Mark Isham's score to the hit ABC TV series Once Upon a Time. Isham needed to come up with a score that spanned the entire spectrum of emotions – not only breathing life into quieter moments, but also being romantic, sweeping, and epic. The result was a score for the series that is both beautiful and heartfelt and has become integral to the fabric of the show. For this release representing music from various episodes, Mark Isham has compiled over an hour of music carefully produced to provide listeners with a musical journey that captures the essence of the show.
Considering the fraught circumstances in which this album was recorded, it's a miracle it sounds as serene as it does. Originally, this was planned as a collaborative project between Krause and his musical partner, Paul Beaver, for Columbia, but that deal collapsed when CBS executive Clive Davis was fired. Then Beaver died of a brain hemorrhage in January 1975, leaving Krause to record it for Takoma as a solo artist, albeit with the help of numerous side players (including a young Mark Isham, who plays flügelhorn on "Heights of Machu Picchu") and arrangers. Then the record wasn't released for another four years.
