Product Description

SOUNDTRACK CORAZON VALIENTE (BRAVEHEART)

Amazon.com

A 1996 Academy Award nominee for Best Dramatic Score, Braveheart is one of composer James (Titanic) Horner's most accomplished works. Utilizing the full range of the London Symphony Orchestra, the Choristers of Westminster Abbey, and a small ensemble of traditional folk instrumentalists, Horner largely eschews the bombast typical of the genre and cuts a more emotionally complex--and satisfying--musical course through this 14th-century tale of betrayal and rebellion. This album presents ample evidence of why Horner is currently at the peak of his profession. --Jerry McCulley

Arguably THE greatest movie score ever composed, and surely one of the best, James Horner's 'Braveheart' is a stunning, beautiful and haunting piece of music. Unfortunately words fail me, (and the superlatives run out, eventually) to describe the beauty and majesty of this score.
Mel Gibson's masterpiece, Braveheart, is my favourite movie ever, with a great story, awesome scenery, involving drama and acting, and wonderful action sequences. But all that would not, I believe, make such an impact were it not for the beautiful music that accompanies and enriches all the images on screen.
I have heard people describe the music in Braveheart as 'unbelievably beautiful', and assuredly it is that, and more. From the haunting, moving theme, to the pounding music for the action and battle sequences, the music is perfect. It perfectly captures and expresses the rugged beauty of Scotland, and the themes of freedom, love, and loyalty/betrayal. The theme itself is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever, perfectly encompassing all the great emotions, from love, to heroism unto death.
James Horner uses Celtic instruments like the Uillean Pipes, and the strings, to give a Scottish feeling to this composition, but without overdoing it. The strings are used very effectively, from the more 'active' scenes, to romantic and sad sequences, like "The Princess pleads for Wallace's life".
But the two tracks that most perfectly express all the beauty and majesty of both the score and the movie, are tracks 9 and 11. "Sons of Scotland" is the accompanying music to the scene in the film just preceding the Battle of Stirling.

There are two versions of the score. The original soundtrack (green cover with orange fireball behind Mel Gibson) and Original Motion Picture (darker cover with no fireball) - both have the same track listings, number of tracks and length of tracks. Both say '1995'. So I guess you're just choosing between the artwork.

I can't fault the 18 tracks included in the original score, they're all good and true to what's in the film BUT, why did they exclude the music we hear when William's dead father is brought home? There are echoes of this theme in track [18. End Credits: Braveheart - Original Sound Track] and at the end of [9. Son's of Scotland] - a real sore point for me, especially as it didn't make it onto the 'more music from..' disc. No excuse!

Also missing is the festival wedding music before prima noctre is demonstrated. (this however IS on the 'more music from...' disc, as is the london wedding choir music!)

COMPOSITION: 5/5 - Events unfold in the same order as the film.

CONTENT: 3/5 - Not all of the music from the film is here. There are at least 3 memorable pieces not included, which is a let-down.

MIXING: 5/5 - The way it sounded in the film as you watched it is near identical. Some themes absent from the score do echo naturally in other tracks, but this happens in the theatrical score as well and is intentional.

Overall: 85%

Listening to the soundtrack of 'Braveheart' regularly has made me realize just how powerful music can make a film. I firmly believe that Braveheart would not have been as great a movie were it not for James Horner's music.
This is a very moving soundtrack. While there is a common musical theme/or sound that runs through the entire soundtrack (which is typical of movie soundtracks), Horner's imagination gives each song a new twist, added verse, or slightly different melody that keeps the listener's attention. Moreover, I love the sound of bagpipes (despite the fact that I come from a Welsh background) ; )
The tracks themselves have many various textures from smooth melodious flowing music to gruff, fully orchestrated pieces that rattle your player until there is an abrupt stop in the music and you are left wanting more. The feeling of the movie definitely comes out in the music.
Having been an avid soundtrack collector for over 20 years now, I can safely say that this is one of the best sountracks out there. I highly recommend it.

To state it plainly, Braveheart is-- in my opinion-- the Greatest Movie of All Time. Mel Gibson told a timeless story in this powerful, insipiring epic film. However, no film can achieve a status of such greatness without an exceptional soundtrack. James Horner's accomplishment with this composition is nothing short of astonishing. The music in Braveheart corresponds perfectly with the action on the screen. You know a soundtrack is good when you can listen to it from beginning to end and virtually play the movie back in your mind. Every sequence of events is captured in music on this masterpiece. James Horner should have an Oscar statue on his mantle for this brilliant achievement, but he was wrongly overlooked. Add this soundtrack to your collection today!

As far as I am concerned, the best original scores ever written are 'Gladiator', 'Last of the Mohicans', 'Titanic', 'Star Wars', and of course, 'Braveheart'. This breathtakingly celtic score is sure to capture your imagination and take you away to Scotland. James Horner makes great use of bagpipes, harps, and some other folk instruments. 'Bravehearts' score has a wonderful natural feel to it, as if this music could have really been there during the story.
James Horner is most well known for his Academy Award Winning score for the critically acclaimed 'Titanic'. If you enjoyed the 'Titanic' score, you'll love this. The same drama and emotion is present and you may be faintly reminded of the 'Titanic' score after hearing this. Remember, 'Braveheart's' score came before 'Titanic's'!
James Horner creates some absolutely stunning and memorable themes here which are reused throughout the score. From the tender and emotional 'A Gift of Thistle' to the upbeat and dramatic 'The Battle of Stirling', James Horner manages to set the mood with his compositions. These pieces are all abosolutely stunning, you won't find yourself skipping over any of them as you usually must do with scores! I usually choose a few favorites when reviewing a score, but I find that I cannot with 'Braveheart's! If you have not seen the film, YOU MUST! And YOU MUST purchase this stunning piece of work, one of the finest scores ever!
