This is the score to the film "Kinsey", about the life and work of sex-researcher Alfred Kinsey. The film, written and directed by Bill Condon and starring Liam Neeson as Kinsey and Laura Linney as his wife, puts Kinsey's work in its mid-20th-century and mid-western American context. Carter Burwell's score weaves between Kinsey's life-long interest in nature - its grandeur and its limitless variety - and the intimacy of human sexuality which became his ultimate field of exploration. It's performed by a small ensemble of exceptional musicians, mostly members of the New York Philharmonic.
