5.0 out of 5 stars Like a great bottle of wine, John WIlliams only gets better, 5 Dec. 2011
This review is from: The Adventures Of Tintin (Audio CD)
The first track on this CD would be enough to make the purchase worthwhile. The inventiveness of the orchestration, the development of the opening thematic idea, plus the way in which John WIlliams presents all the major motifs with sleight of hand is mesmerizing. This is a master craftsman and major intellect at work. The rest of the score is just as stunning. Brilliantly conceived, the usual colorful orchestrations, amazing turns of melody. There are overtones of Harry Potter, but the material can only be described as Harry Potter on steroids. What always amazes me is the unexpected harmonic shifts I've come to know and love in John's music. They are ALWAYS surprising. The pirate music in particular is extraordinary. The restraint he gets out of the orchestra on the final track is magical. And yet it still delivers a punch. This was worth every penny, as is the War Horse score. If only the majority of contemporary film music were this well-conceived. It's thrilling to have the Maestro back in full swing!
