I was in the cinema watching this film last weekend and about half way through I noticed the violin parts in one of the songs and thought..."That's a Marianelli piece" I love this man, his score for Pride and Predjudice (2005) was fantastic and is still on my Ipod now, I am now buying this one to add to my list.
I know i know...knowing the composer by one piece of music is very geeky of me but that's why you should buy up all of his soundtracks, he has a style which is an absolute joy to listen to, it enhances whatever scene it is paired with but even on its own it is fantastic, the emotion is right there even without a visual aid. I cannot name another modern composer who matches Marianelli's talent. I've passed his CDs around my friends and I have decided that we like films based on his contributions... I never would have picked up V for vendetta for example if I hadn't seen that he wrote the score.
So...I have waffled on a bit haven't I? Key points: 1) Dario Marianelli=Awesome, 2)buy thic CD!
