Great music - very uplifting!

Isn't it lovely when you can listen to a sound track from a movie and be right back there in each scene!

Format: Audio CD
Granted the music by Dario Marianelli composed for this film is very fine and the excerpts from the `guests' as singers who could fill the roles suggested and portrayed in the film are quite fine, but so many wonder who we actually were hearing in the movie. Thus the following is offered for enlightenment and curiosity.

"Quartet" is a movie that real adults can love. At both screenings I've seen, the audience applauded as the credits rolled which is highly unusual for a motion picture audience. The story line is simple: Residents of an English retirement home for musicians must raise money to keep their home open in spite of the difficulties resulting from simply growing older and not being at their peak in terms of performance. To achieve their goal, they decide to participate in a performance even though some of them fear performing in public again. The musical score soars and provides beauty to the film and brings that beauty back when the film is long over. The music on the soundtrack is comprised of classic music from Verdi, Haydn and others as well as original music by Dario Marianelli who also created music for the movie "Atonement."

Isn't it lovely when you can listen to a sound track from a movie and be right back there in each scene! Such was the case with Quartet. Beautiful sound quality and just lovely to listen to over and over.

The movie was amazingly good, and the soundtrack, of course, was incredible. Some of the greatest artists of our time perfroming some of greatest music from another time. It is wonderful to have this music collected on one CD. And if you are new to this type of music, you could not get a better introduction.

I should have realized that some of the music is background music (chamber like) - not enough of the music I loved during the movie.

The movie was wonderful - and the score is simply lovely. Listening to the score really evoked the scenes in the movie.
