This wonderful Soundtrack to a equally wonderful production is no longer available here in Australia. I was so happy when I found that Amazon still had it.
Rachel Portman is an amazing composer. I have and enjoy listening to the Rachel Portman's 1996 Soundtrack of Emma and this Soundtrack does not disappoint.
This Sondtrack is a must have for anyone who enjoy's music by Rachel Portman and/or the production of Douglas MacGrath Nicholas Nickleby.
Trust me you will not be disappointed.

A GOOD QUALITY CD OF A WELL PRODUCED, ACTED FILM. THE MUSIC IS SUPERB COMPOSED BY RACHEL PORTMAN, ESPECIALLY, THE OPENING AND CLOSING THEMES

Nicholas Nickleby

Why? Well, this CD claims to be the "original soundtrack", and it isn't. Tempi are slower, and the orchestration isn't quite the same. The music accompanying the opening credits (possibly the best music in the film) is missing, and the end title music isn't nearly as joyful, or as vigorous as that played in the original film, and subsequent DVD issue. I awarded this 3 stars which, I think, is very generous, all things considered.

Great score...wish it were longer! 20 May 2004
By A reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really liked the score just from hearing a clip of it played at the opening menu on the 'Nicholas Nickleby' DVD. Very pleasant, easy listening. It immediately caught my ear and I knew I had to buy the CD.
I am a tad disappointed in the soundtrack though. I don't mind that the main theme repeats itself most of the tracks. My main problem is that the tracks are too short! There are 22 tracks in all, but at about 40 min. worth of total music, quite a few of the tracks hover at the minute mark, which seems rather silly. Only the first and last tracks are of substantial length. Although they seem to follow their appearance in the movie fairly accurately, I would not have minded if perhaps a 'suite' had appeared.
I know it's unlikely, but I would dearly love an expanded release. Overall however, it's a good score.

Another gorgeous score from Portman 21 Mar 2003
By North Idaho Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When you first hear this, you'll know it's Rachel Portman. Reminiscent of "Cider House Rules" and "Legend of Bagger Vance", this score confirms that Portman is one of the best. Romantic, uplifting, melodic, nostalgic. She brings all of this to every score she writes, and if her different movie themes end up all sounding a bit similar... well, that's fine with me!

Excellent Work Rachel Portman! 9 Mar 2003
By Maureen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The score to this amazing movie mirrors the emotion and beauty of every scene. Ms. Portman can capture love, peace, suspense, and pity in a simple alteration of one tune in one track. Her interpretation of characters onto the music staff is incredibly vivid, leaving the listener's imagination to recreate some of the most memorable scenes in the movie. Especially the first track which is the opening of the movie. The music grabs you and holds you there until the last second of the last track. Fantastic heart-warming score! You must hear it!

Magic--wish it were longer! 15 Oct 2004
By Greg Vogel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was greatly moved by this film; Nickleby's story is an inspiration for our times, and I thought it was well produced on screen. But I forgot about how much I liked the music until an Amazon review popped up accidentally in some web search or other. I rushed out to buy the CD, and thanks to the reviewers here, I was prepared for the fact that it's awfully short. Even so, the music is so charming and the main theme so sweetly uplifting, it's all forgivable. Thanks to Ms. Portman for a wonderful score, and yes, I'd love it if she would compose an entire suite.

Motion Picture Soundtrack : Nicholas Nickley 16 Dec 2009
By Hector Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
About three or four years ago during the Christmas season, I was switching TV channels on a Sunday afternoon when I happen to catch the beginning of the movie Nicholas Nickleby. The musical score just swept me away. The music was composed by British female composer Rachel Portman. It's beautiful ,lively melody has a way of leaving one feeling uplifted with a joyful heart.Some parts of the musical score is like a delightful folk dance. Rachel Portman's theme music from Nicholas Nickleby is one of the best I ever heard as well as John Barry's John Dunbar Theme from Dances with Wolves. If you are feeling the "blues" or feel dishearten about life, this is the music to listen to.
