Format: Audio CD
This original soundtrack ranks among the best by French composer Desplat, and certainly among the best of such genre, the Schindler's List included.
The music as well as the performance were superb. Too sad that the sound engineer passed away shortly after this track was being completed.
While Chinese pianist Lang Lang is not known primarily for playing French repertoire, his interpretation of Desplat's score and the Satie piece are totally in sync with the style.
Especially enchanting are the predominantly watery images employed in the music.
It would have been perfect if the French song was being included, as well as the Chinese opera excerpt.

This is a beautiful sound track. Lang Lang plays piano and it is lovely. My only disappointment was that the song the children sing in the orphanage was not on it, "A La Claire Fountaine". The album is light and flows well, although some may find it 'samey'. If you enjoyed the film and the soundtrack, its worth the buy.

A beautiful soundtrack to a beautiful film. It has both piano performance by Lang Lang, one of the leading pianists of the young generation, and orchestral arrangements to set the mood. I enjoy listening to it both to relax and to be inspired. Highly recommend it even to the lovers of the classical music.

After listening to this motion picture soundtrack, I was disappointed that the children's chanson, "Jamais je ne t'oublierai," sung at the end of the film, was not included. Nevertheless, the CD compensates for this lack with other delights, including Lang Lang's lilting interpretation of Satie's "Gnossienne #1" and Mr. Desplat's haunting "River Waltz" which not only complements Satie's composition but also evokes the ephemeral mood of this memorable film so beautifully.

Well worth having in one's CD library.

Admittedly I only bought it for the Ylang Ylang tracks as they are just amazing but the rest is worth a listen I think though really it's only for anyone that has seen the film so you can relate to the tracks.

Basically, if you enjoyed The Painted Veil, then the soundtrack is definitely something you should buy. I'm not generally interested in film sountracks, as they're often pretty bland, but The Painted Veil is definitely an exception. It captures the romance, death, passion, and bleakness of the film.

The best tracks are (in my opinion) River Waltz, Kitty's Theme and The Painted Veil.
