Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Mark Herman's tragi-comedy set among the fictional coal-mining community of Grimley revolves around the exploits of the local colliery's brass band and its struggle to survive imminent pit closure. Among the film's virtues are a bitter-sweet (with an emphasis on "bitter") script, strong performances all round--including Pete Postlethwaite, Tara Fitzgerald and Ewan McGregor--and a superb soundtrack. Grimley's real-life counterpart is the Penine town of Grimethorpe, and, entirely uncoincidentally, the Grimethorpe Colliery Band were chosen to perform the music. Having themselves survived pit closure to become one of the top brass bands in Britain, the Grimethorpe band know all about playing from the heart. But the script's subject-matter aside, the album is actually an uplifting, entertaining selection of classic "lollipops", including the Floral Dance, Colonel Bogey, and a meltingly good arrangement of Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez ("That's Orange Juice to you", says Postlethwaite in the movie) for solo flugelhorn. Trevor Jones contributes an attractive and pleasingly low-key score, but it's the band tracks that are the real selling-point here, making Brassed Off an ideal introduction to popular brass band music. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars A Moving soundtrack equal to the film 22 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you have seen the film then you will understand where this music comes from, the heart and soul of those involved. You may think that the music echoes back to grim days in Yorkshire with flat caps and fish and chips, with chirpy little ditties to keep your spirits up. You will be disappointed, the music is much more than that, it is beautifully performed and executed and moving to listen to, especially when you know the background to the Band is similar to that in the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully evocative soundtrack ! 11 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
The Grimethorpe Colliery Band has always been one of my favourites, and this soundtrack 'hits the bulls-eye'. As far as I'm concerned, music is primarily a story telling tool, and this score certainly captures the tragi/comedy atmosphere of the film 'Brassed Off'.

5.0 out of 5 stars OST - Brassed Off 7 May 2004
By N. Wilson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a beautiful cd, to accompany the film brassed off.
The film is one based on the mining era in briton, and tells how brass brought people together.
This is a brillient collection. The music is stunning, the pieces are riviting and the instruments are spin tingaling.
Whether Brassed Off is one of your film collection of not, you want this lovely album.
10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting 8 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
I wouldn't say I was a brass band fan, but I bought the soundtrack after watching a repeat of Brassed Off and seeing the Grimethorpe Colliery band in concert. I have the CD in the car and play it loudly - the only way to listen to this uplifting and inspiring music. A couple of tracks are my favourites - "Orange Juice" and "William Tell" - they make the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. I recommend this soundtrack to anyone - you can't help conducting the orchestra!

Grimthorpe Colliery Band are absolutely phenomenal on this track! Brassed Off is one of my favourite films, it is so inspirational. I played in a brass band for about 5 years, and I miss it so much, so listening to this helps me remember. Highly, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 5 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
Great set of numbers from the film. But whatever you do don't miss Trevor Jones'snippets of incidental music from the film. If you play them sequentially, without the main tracks, they form a coherent threead, with the theme developing through subtle change from bright and whimsical, through wistful, through to dramatic and doom laden. Those incidental snippets actually move me more than the main pieces, perhaps except for the masterful d'Oranjuez.
