Product Description

George Fenton's career is littered with awards, multiple Ivor Novellos, BAFTAs, Emmys, a Classical Brit and five Oscar nominations. With 100 film and TV scores to his credit the breadth of his composing is simply breathtaking. Films include Gandhi, Cry Freedom, The Fisher King, Groundhog Day, Shadowlands and an array of timeless TV music such as Shoestring, Bergerac, The Jewel In The Crown and Newsnight. In the past two decades his work with the BBC Wildlife Unit has seen enduring scores for acclaimed hit worldwide series such as The Trials Of Life, The Blue Planet and Planet Earth which have been performed in concert by many of the world's leading orchestras. Frozen Planet originally shown in 2011 continues to underline his remarkable skills of matching the movement of the natural world to music. 'One of the key challenges we face as wildlife filmmakers is to try and transport our audiences to the wonderful wildernesses we experience first hand. George Fenton's wonderful score was a vital tool to help us take people to the poles - a place beyond imagination' - Alastair Fothergill, Producer of Frozen Planet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music That Reflects The Wonders Of Nature 18 Oct 2013
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While the height of BBC's nature docs came to mass popularity with Planet Earth, they had been actually producing some great work beforehand. The Blue Planet actually came before Planet Earth and George Fenton has always been the go-to composer for David Attenborough and the BBC team. His impressive filmography has established himself as one of the great British composers, and he literally changed the way nature documentaries were scored. Frozen Planet is not as widely scattered as say Planet Earth was. We are dealing with certain climates and wildlife specific to those regions so the music takes on a more steady identity. There is an overarching feel that encompasses everything yet it still has little moments that separate themselves from the rest. The result is a splendid one.

The music, like in Fenton's past work, guides us on a journey while introducing us to new animals. Fenton does score the moments in their pure essence, be it "Surfing Penguins" or "Elephant Seal Duel". These moments definitely stand on their own but still feel like they're part of the big picture. It's an interesting effect that is happening. Music is our own emotional tool. It connects us humans emotionally to whatever is going on. So in a way Fenton is translating animal behavior into emotional movements for us to connect to. That is why his work is so essential to the success of all the BBC produced nature docs. Most nature shows have some generic stock music in the background, but when you hear something like Frozen Planet you will understand the amazing results of a masterful structured approach to the music. At times this listen feels like a film score with rousing action, character quirks, building tension and believable atmosphere. All of these characteristics help make Frozen Planet another memorable journey into the natural world around us.

George Fenton's talent for taking us around the world to see and feel animals in their natural habitat is undeniable. He also does all of it with music. His music must share the speakers with David Attenborough's narration and in the final mix the full effect is still there. Fenton is a genuine talent when it comes to his approach for all of his BBC Earth scores. Frozen Planet is another wonderful journey worth taking.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another George Fenton documentary triumph 3 Jun 2013
By Jon - Published on Amazon.com

Frozen Planet finds Fenton returning to the comforts of The Blue Planet and Planet Earth and continuing to produce tremendously evocative listens. The warmth and consistency with this album matches its predecessor's high standards. Whether you gravitate more towards the powerful brass statements in Elephant Seal Duel or the serene tones of the Scott's Legacy, this is an absolute must-have.
5.0 out of 5 stars Frozen Planet - Original TV Soundtrack 21 May 2013
By JMM - Published on Amazon.com
"Frozen Planet" is one of my favorite nature programs. Anyone who has seen the program on television (or on the stunning blu-ray disc) knows that the filmmakers captured amazing footage of our planet's icy areas and it's inhabitants. But the images are only half the experience - it's the music that helps make the show a truly powerful experience.

With 32 tracks totaling nearly 75 minutes of music, this soundtrack is loaded with the extraordinary music from all 7 episodes the TV series. The soundtrack was composed by BBC regular George Fenton, who also composed for the popular nature series "Planet Earth" and "Blue Planet".

The opening titles theme starts things off in an impressive way, and the rest of the album follows suit. There really isn't a dull track on the album, it's fantastic from start to finish. I like the mix of music - some tracks are playful (Cub's First Hunt); others are suspenseful (Battle of Wills); and some are just plain epic (Scott's Legacy).

The music in this series is every bit as awe-inspiring as the imagery. I highly recommend this album to fans of "Frozen Planet" or anyone who likes movie soundtracks.
