Editorial Reviews

John Barry seems to have that unique ability to transform the genres he tackles; for Dances with Wolves , he brought to the Western epic a voice of romance, drama and moments of melancholy. The beauty of his Oscar-winning score is enhanced here with unreleased music and bonus tracks, bringing you Barry's complete score for the first time!

Customer Reviews

You must have this score in your movie music collection.

This is one of John Barry's masterworks - if not indeed his magnus opus - and we've waited much too long for a comprehensive reissue. Whatever you think of Kevin Costner's film (and I'd hate to base a friendship on whether or not someone loved "Dances with Wolves" as I did) it would be a far less exciting movie without Barry's magnificent score. Eschewing the more traditional Western sound pioneered by Jerome Moross and Elmer Bernstein, which eventually descended into rank imitation and self-parody, Barry went for a lush, poewerful symphonic rhapsody. While avoiding ethnic cliches in his music for the Native American characters, he found expression for the more violent aspects of tribal warfare through a stunning, resonant, absolutely plangent use of percussion that quickens the pulse and suggests menace without going into histrionic overdrive. Barry's melodic work is no less impressive: in his justly famous "John Dunbar Theme," for example, there is a weird, majestic inevitability to the notes - they seem to flow into one another in exactly the right way; you can't imagine a single cadence being any different. This new release restores much that was truncated on the original release of the score. "The Buffalo Hunt" - which accompanies one of the most original and exciting set-pieces in recent American movies - is given the full treatment here, and is therefore twice as satisfying. My only cavil: Barry wrote an hour and 40 minutes worth of music, so even this lovingly restored version is shorter than it might be in a perfect world. And I'm not sure why the producers added the film version of the Dunbar theme as a bonus track rather than reordering it to replace the album version within the score itself. Still, this disc is a major cause for celebration, an essential element for the shelves of any true lover of film music.

I am reduced to a blubbering fool listening to this. I remember seeing this in the theater way back in 1990 and realizing that the music I was listening to at that time was gutwrenching, endearing and lump in the throat forming. John Barry captured the feel of Dances With Wolves to a tee. What a breathtaking journey he takes us on through this soundtrack. I am a fool for not buying this music until 2005. I have watched my copy of the movie over the years and now have this CD. The John Dunbar theme touches my heartstrings like no other song. Amazing how music can touch the soul. If you don't have this in your collection, do order it. You will be transported to a world that no longer exists. Excellent!

John Barry's masterpiece is simply one of the most breathtaking, moving film scores of all time. The rich variety of themes, and his trademark sweeping orchestration are unforgetteble. Most stunning, perhaps, is that the music that captures the epic grandeur of the American West better than any other was written by an Englishman, albeit one who has adopted the US as his home.

This CD does not present the score "in its entirety," as the liner notes claim, but there is a huge amount not available until now, and at the low list price, this is a must have for anybody who enojys film music.

First, be aware the SACD CD's may not play in older CD players, unless they are specifically labeled that they will play SACD media. (Has nothing to do with this review, but many are confused on this point.)
Very succinct review:
Each main character (including the calvary) in the movie has his own theme music. As the character's development on film continues, so does the embellishment in the score.
The masterful touch is the blending of each themes as the film characters compliment or conflict with the other. As you listen to the music over and over, these subtleties come across. The cd can be played many times over, each time one discovers nuances not discovered before. It's as though Mr. Barry has discovered new shades of color never seen before. These are insinuated in the orchestration of the score.
I also love the "Great American West" feel of the music, similar to Copeland and evocative of a Charles Russell painting.
It is a symphonic dream, and one of the relatively few pieces of music that justifies the cost of a good stereo system.

Format: Audio CD
The score to Dances with Wolves portends like a tragic Greek chorus the fate of a doomed people. Yet it also charts the inner life of the film's central character, John Dunbar, as he progresses from civil war soldier to member of a Lakota Sioux tribe. The tension between these dual aspects of the score is tapped to maximum effect by composer John Barry, with magical results. "Journey to Fort Sedgewick" and "The Buffalo Hunt," for instance, are rousing, majestic tracks which transcend the constraints of the movie's somber theme. The cruelty and mayhem which pervades the film also heightens the score's tender moments (eg. "Two Socks--The Wolf Theme"; "Kicking Bird's Gift"). At its best, the music transports the listener to the world depicted on the screen; it situates us in the vastness and beauty of the Great Plains, before it was trammelled with the accoutrements of modern culture. John Barry's work in Dances with Wolves is his crowning achievement in a stellar career. He garnered a richly deserved Oscar for best original score in 1990. Perhaps in time the critics will tout it as one of the finest ever recorded.
