Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë's timeless tale of love, madness and female empowerment, has been brought to life several times on the big screen, and inspired some excellent scores, most notably by Bernard Herrmann and John Williams. This new film, directed by Cary Fukunaga, stars Mia Wasikowska as the eponymous heroine, who was mistreated and downtrodden as a young girl in 17th century England, but eventually grows up to be the governess of a young girl at the rambling, imposing Thornfield Hall. Jane falls in love with the dashing master of the house, Rochester (Michael Fassbender), but as her relationship with the raffish gentleman develops, increasingly strange things begin to happen during the night in the dark and dusty corridors of Thornfield, testing Jane's nerve, and her sanity. The film also stars Jamie Bell, Sally Hawkins and Judi Dench, and features a sumptuous, utterly beautiful score by Dario Marianelli.

Since winning his Oscar for Atonement in 2007, Marianelli's output has been generally high quality, but surprisingly meager; The Brave One, Everybody's Fine, the wonderful Agora, and last year's Eat Pray Love were all fine works, but other than Agora none of them really came close to recapturing the refinement and elegance Marianelli showed in his earlier works for British period films - until now. Jane Eyre inhabits the same intimate sonic world as Atonement and 2005's Pride & Prejudice, and as such will appeal to fans of his style in that genre, but where Jane Eyre excels is in its emotional impact. This is a score which gets under your skin, makes you feel the nervousness and uncertainty Jane feels during her time at Thornfield, before exploding into rapturous romanticism.

There's 19 tracks of varying lengths, most short, the longer ones 3-4+ minutes composed and produced by the quite capeable Dario Marinelli. It features violinist Jack Liebeck and to a lesser degree John Alley on piano. A light orchestra backs them up, and the ensemble does a fine job of conveying the darkly romantic and tragic themes.

I have not seen the movie; therefore, I reflect simply on the music and not about remembering the scenes that go with them- although I can kind of guess from the titles and image them. Of course, we know the story- the grandaddy of all gothic romances, and I thoroughly enjoy the soundtrack from the Franco Zeffirelli's film starring William Hurt and Charlotte Gainsbourgh, music by Alessio Vlad and Claudio Capponi.

This version is very subtle and quite different than the other with it's violin focus. For the most part the pieces are meditative and relaxing, sweet and forlorn. They're simple and similar- not a whole lot of rousing action.

I like the tune "The Wedding Dress": starts extremely basic with piano, followed by the violin and develops into plain and rich counterbalance between the two- may I say, much like Jane and Rochester.

If you like what you heard in the movie or like reflective, peaceful violin work, you'll love the CD.

After watching Jane Eyre, I found myself longing to hear "Awaken" over and over again. So much so that I bought the CD and have been listening to it over and over. And yes, the overall mood or tone of the soundtrack is sorrowful, but the beauty of the music shines so much that it leaves you longing to hear more. The violin solos have on more than one occasion brought me to tears. The film was a good one, but I'm so much more thankful that the soundtrack was created because of it!

Dario Marianelli's score to "Jane Eyre" is, like everything else about this production, exquisite and communicative of depth of feeling. The music beautifully evokes the film and it's various sequences, yet totally holds up on it's own as substantial music that has an overall continuity and thematic development, but is comprised of distinctive, individual pieces. I've listened to this cd many times, in my home and in my car, and it never fails to transport me into the haunting, gothic, romantic world of Charlotte Bronte. What a beautiful, memorable film, and this music is a vital part of creating the spell.

I love Dario Marianelli. He is one of my favorite soundtrack composers. This soundtrack is beautiful, but the quality of the recording was very distracting. When tracks like "A Thorough Education" or "Mrs. Reed is Not Quite Finished" there is a high pitched ringing in the background that sounds like the result of bad sound engineering. It was so bad that I had to turn off the music and write this review. The last five tracks do not suffer the same problems. It seems like the ringing is associated with the violin track. I only notice it when the violin is playing. I wish that I didn't get a headache because of this noise because the soundtrack itself is truly beautiful.

I hope that this is helpful. I am curious if anyone else has noticed similar issues.

ACCORDING TO ME DARIO MARIANELLI (EVEN IF HE LIVES IN LONDON HE'S ITALIAN LIKE ME!)IS ONE OF THE MOST SENSITIVE COMPOSER THAT WE HAVE (REMEMBER EVEN THE SOUNDTRACK OF OTHER MOVIES, FOR EXAMPLE PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ATONEMENT). IN JANE EYRE'S SOUNDTRACK THE SOUND OF MUSIC, AND ABOVE ALL THE VIOLIN, ARRIVES SO MUCH IN THE DEEPER PART OF MY SOUL, THAT I FEEL VERY TOUCHED. AND THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED TO ME EVEN DURING THE SIGHT OF THE FUKUNAGA'S MOVIE.
