Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Too many soundtracks feel interchangeable, and rare are the composers who really capture a movie's core. But Javier Navarrete has succeeded in his Oscar-nominated score for Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, a dark fantasy set in 1944 Spain. The first cue, "Long, Long Time Ago," sets the melancholy tone with piano and voice; the spectral piano pops up several more times, and the theme is more fully developed in "Mercedes Lullaby." But it's the second track, the aptly titled "The Labyrinth," that really gives the listener insight into the movie's tenebrous universe. While Navarrete can certainly do short, intimate pieces dotted with telling arrangements (like the few trumpet notes adding a subtle Spanish flavor to "Rose, Dragon"), he excels on the longer tracks, such as "Not Human," which goes through a succession of moods, each one increasingly scary, without ever going overboard into cheap, demonstrative effects. Navarrete has already had a long career as a film scorer in Spain, and this won't be the last American audiences hear from him. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting 16 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who's seen this movie must surely know that it's an instant classic, something which is carried over to this fantastic soundtrack. I'm not good with words, but this must surely be one of the most beautiful OST's I've ever owned, and will remain on my CD player for quite some time to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful score 4 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
Javier Navarrete's wonderful and haunting score for 'Pan's Labyrinth' will certainly please fans of the film. The disc itself is well presented with an illustrated booklet with a forward by both del Toro and Navarrete. I would definately reccomend this item. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Jewel of a Soundtrack (Muy bien!) 29 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
I first saw "El Laberinto del Fauno" ("Pan's Labyrinth", if you insist, although director Guillermo Del Toro has pointed out that the Faun in the film is NOT Pan!), in Spanish class at University, and the thing that haunted me most about the film was the music: in particular, the main theme.

Even so, buying the soundtrack to a non-Hollywood film was still unusual for me, but where I live, good film scores are hard to come by and this one just happened to appear in a local CD store, so I bought it, and boy was I glad that I did.

As is explained in the liner notes and in the DVD's special features, Del Toro wanted the main theme to be a simple lullaby melody, reflecting the fairy tale nature of the story. Javier Navarette succeeded not only in this, but also in crafting a beautiful score that seems to emanate from the main theme.

It is both enchanting when it accompanies the curiosity and mystery of the fairy tale, and harsh and disturbing when it conveys the evils present in both the fantasy and the reality. The main theme, the lullaby, permeates all of the music, but there are also other themes, like one that represents Mercedes' courage and another to reflect the tragic deaths in the story.

I find it difficult to describe the music as it is unlike anything I have heard before, but in a good way. Also, the CD does not suffer from the fluctuating recording levels that I always encounter in `Hollywood soundtracks': what I mean is, the sound is balanced and you don't have to keep adjusting it for loud and soft parts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fairytale of old. 12 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Javier's work on this soundtrack mixes fantasy and the harsh reality of conflict incredibly well. Using a child’s lullaby as the central theme weaves the story into a tale of fantastic beauty, touched with horror, like a true fairytale.
The music brings the final horrific and fantastical scene to life in the film, and brings a tear to your eye as you listen on the CD.
