Product Description

DreamWorks Pictures’ War Horse, directed by Steven Spielberg, is an epic tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War.
War Horse begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the story follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of those he meets, British, German and French alike, civilian and cavalry, before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.
Continuing their long-standing collaboration, Steven Spielberg chose the celebrated composer John Williams to create the score for War Horse. “The dramatic countryside of Dartmoor has inspired John Williams to compose a score of such beauty...it affected me deeply, as have so many of John’s scores during our nearly 40-year collaboration. I feel that John has made a special gift to me of this music” Steven Spielberg on John Williams’ score for War Horse.

War Horse is the latest soundtrack by veteran composer John Williams, and yet another colaberation with director Stephen Spielberg - surely the best double act in Hollywood history. After impressing me with his score for The Adventures Of Tintin last December, I was eagerly awaiting this latest effort. I can say right from the outset that War Horse does not fail to deliver. I might even go as far as to say that it could be my favourite John Williams score ever.

I won't run through every track (there's 16 in total). But just to mention a few, the main theme is heard in full glory in the opening track "Dartmoor, 1912". As theme, it isn't one of Williams' catchiest but is very sweeping/patriotic without being saccharine. Track 12 "The Death of Topthorn" contains some brilliantly emotive writing for strings and clarinet. There are few action based tracks on the album. In the tracks that did, they are some of the finest I have heard from Williams. In particular, Track 13 "No Man's Land" is simply sensational. It hits its stride just after the 2 minute mark and the next two minutes is just stunning. For me though, the pinnacle of the album are the final two tracks, "Remembering Emilie, and Finale" and "The Homecoming". I can't say anything more other than for fans of orchestral music / film scores, this showcases the best of Williams' writing and ends the album on the best note possible.

From a production side, the mix is absolutely wonderful. The whole orchestra comes through with fantastic clarity, whether it's the brass, woodwind or string section. Simply masterful. In addition, the album runs at an hour exactly.

Being a huge fan of John Williams, I knew before seeing the film that this was going to be a sweeping, epic score of multiple dimentions and emotions. From the sleepy village in the middle of Dartmoor to the charge of the cavalry, to the slaughter on "no mans land" it envokes every feeling that one has for a film of this scale. To call this vintage Spielburg is one thing, I reckon to call this classic Williams doesn't do it justice. This film is stunning and I emplore everybody (young and old) to go and see this film, you may require a tissue!

After being starved of new scores from John Williams for several years, he returned with the fun and jazzy Tintin. With War Horse however, he brings back his sweeping epic orchestrations, reminisant of scores such as Far and Away and The Patriot.
The main theme is beautiful and by the end of the score, I am not ashamed to say, I had a tear in my eye. There is no one quite like John Williams and although he turns 80 this year, the quality of his work shows he is by no means tiring. May he continue to produce such fine work.

Firstly, this music is very different from that of the National Theatre Stage Play.
It is different, but nevertheless superb. Each track is evocative of the period, and captures the atmosphere of the film brilliantly.
Buy this, you won't be disappointed.

Love this soundtrack! John Williams doing the same old thing he has done so well for decades! A very sensitive soundtrack to the moving story of War Horse - I felt the setting was well captured through the music. John Williams deserves more credit for this soundtrack!!

I am not a fan of classical type music but my Lord this is out of this world. A jopurney through a rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish. Following hearing this sountrack I watched the film and it becomes all the more special. A journey through every human emotion imaginable. Sadly can only give it 5 stars.

John Williams' lush orchestral style is perfectly suited for this romantic score. The album opens and ends with a gentle flute, evoking a pastoral landscape. In between, an emotional story unfolds without words. The richly thematic music is warm, romantic and sweeping. It is certainly one of the best movie scores in a long time.
