Love this music,
This review is from: John Barry: Playing by Heart [SOUNDTRACK] (Audio CD)
I had heard John Barry interviewed on NPR online in 1998 and he played the theme song to this movie. I was just blown away. I had to download the file, I remember, so I was able to play it many many times, but this was way before mp3 files were popular, so the only time I could listen to it was when I was at the computer.
I thought about it for years, really. Silly, I know-- but I really loved the music and I imagined that I could play it on the piano well if I could just find the sheet music to it, too (I can't play by ear :( ). I looked periodically over the years but could never find it. And, when I actually did find it, I was very confused because I found the OTHER soundtrack-- which was not what I was looking for.
So, finally, several years ago, I found this cd. And, the whole thing is superb. I don't listen to it every day nor every week, but when I do, I am completely transported-- it's a perfect evening cd or rainy day cd. Or, actually, anytime, if you have some quiet time that isn't constantly interrupted.
I reviewed this today because I came upon the listing when I did my periodic search for the sheet music. That is still unavailable and I'm still disappointed!
