Editorial Reviews

Following the much acclaimed-animated feature FANTASTIC MR. FOX, Wes Anderson returns to live-action filmmaking with MOONRISE KINGDOM. Set amongst the widow's walks and Yankee traditions of 1965 New England, Anderson and co-screenwriter Roman Coppola create an incomparable tale of romance between rogue Khaki Scout Sam and the beautiful and troubled Suzy.

Grounded in the elegiac compositions of classical composer Benjamin Britten, whose majestic choral NOYES FLUDDE ignites the film's young lovers, MOONRISE KINGDOM features masterworks performed by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic as well as popular gems performed by French chanteuse Françoise Hardy and the legendary country troubadour Hank Williams.

As in all of Anderson's previous films, music is an essential element and once again it is used to masterful effect. MOONRISE KINGDOM includes an original suite by renowned film composer Alexandre Desplat as well as percussion compositions by longtime Anderson collaborator and Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh. This soundtrack promises to be one of this year's most interesting and compelling releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music - full of imagination June 18, 2012
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is full of great music - Britten, Saint-Saens, Schubert, Francoise Hardy, Hank Williams, ... Period and classic music blend in a whirl of imaginative ideas. The mixture makes it very special and great to listen also apart from the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Movie Music that's good even without the movie July 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My wife and I see a lot of movies. This is the first one in a long long time that we've both gushed over. So, I bought the CD. I've done this before, and found that the music without the pictures is just so-so. But here, both the older music (Hank Williams, etc) and the new are so good, they need no pictorial accompaniment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music from a great movie July 25, 2012
By T. Dahl
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Not much to say but this music perfectly compliments the movie. A touch of indie, a touch of classical/film score, and a few oldies mixed in. Just get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magical Journey, Revisited February 8, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure I was going to like the soundtrack as much as I liked the movie, but I bought it anyway, and I'm glad I did. As much as the music compliments the scenes it's used in, it easily stands alone as well. The classical pieces run the gamut from mystical to spectacular, and the tracks by Hank Williams have given me a new respect for his work. If you haven't seen the movie, this is a good introduction to it. If you have seen it, this is a neat reminder. And either way, it makes really good listening.

I REALLY like this soundtrack, especially the closeout with the child's voice describing the instrument(s) being played. This is something that you can listen to over and over

5.0 out of 5 stars Alexandre Desplat honors Benjamin Britten December 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
It is rare when a film of the sensitivity of MOONRISE KINGDOM is coupled with a composer of the stature of Alexandre Desplat and the feeling of simplicity finds such a fine union with the musical director incorporating classical musical that delivers the same level of caring. In the film the young actors speak about music - the final music in the film is an imprint created by Desplat of the Britten `Young People's Guide to the Orchestra' in that the voice announces the entrance of each new instrument about to be added to the orchestral fabric. That is exactly what Benjamin Britten did in his earlier piece: according to Wikipedia, `The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, Op. 34, is a musical composition by Benjamin Britten in 1946 with a subtitle "Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell". In the introduction, the theme is initially played by the entire orchestra, then by each major family of instruments of the orchestra: first the woodwinds, then the brass, then the strings, and finally by the percussion. Each variation then features a particular instrument in depth, in the same family order, and generally moving through each family from high to low. So, for example, the first variation features the piccolo and flutes; each member of the woodwind family then gets a variation, ending with the bassoon; and so on, through the strings, brass, and finally the percussion. After the whole orchestra has been effectively taken to pieces in this way, it is reassembled using an original fugue which starts with the piccolo, followed by all the woodwinds, strings, brass and percussion in turn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, can be used in a learning setting as well July 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Our family happened upon the "coming of age" movie and fell in love with it AND the accompanying soundtrack. We bought one for ourselves and one as a gift for our Elementary music teacher. I have two daughters, 9 and 6 and they adore this soundtrack!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music for music teachers May 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very impressed by the music when I saw the movie. I thought it would be great for music teachers. Usually, they bring up the old "Peter and the Wolf" when they want to teach children about musical instruments. But Moonrise Kingdom beat "Peter and the Wolf" by a long shot. So I bought this CD as a gift to share with my music teacher friend who's running out of ideas.

Moonrise Kingdom Soundtrack - help on first song!
"A Postcard To Henry Purcell" is based on a theme from Henry Purcell's incidental music for Abdelazar, that was also used by Benjamin Britten in The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra.
