Editorial Reviews

The Golden Globe nominated music from Madonna's upcoming film W.E. composed, orchestrated and produced by Abel Korzeniowski , which also includes Madonna's Golden Globe award winning song "Masterpiece". W.E. was directed, co-written and produced by Madonna and distributed by The Weinstein Company.

The score was recorded in April 2011 at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London with a 60-piece orchestra conducted by Terry Davies including piano, violin and viola solos.

The Polish born Los Angeles based Korzeniowski previously wrote the original score for the Tom Ford film A Single Man for which he also received a Golden Globe nomination.

"The prevailing sense of obsession was what inspired me in W.E. -- the irrational compulsion to sacrifice everything and anything for love - a love that could easily be just an illusion. In my music, I wanted to reflect those powerful and conflicting emotions through a web of melodic themes, which relentlessly repeat and constantly swing between despair and sorrow, and hope and joy," commented Korzeniowski.

"W.E." tells the story of American divorcee Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and England's King Edward (James D'Arcy) who abdicated his thrown to be with the woman he loved. It is considered one of the greatest love stories of the 20th century. The story is told through the eyes of a modern day New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Abby Cornish). Composer Korzeniowski masterfully and seamlessly bridged the two unique worlds of Europe in the 30′s and 40′s and the contemporary Manhattan environment of a woman lost in her dreams of the perfect love.

In addition to Korzeniowski's magnificent score, the soundtrack includes the original song "Masterpiece" composed by Madonna, Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry and sung by Madonna which is played during the end credits of the film. It will also be included on Madonna's upcoming solo album for Interscope, MDNA, which is scheduled for release in spring 2012.

I just received my copy of the W.E. soundtrack and I have to say that it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL relaxing music that I could listen to over and over again. One of, if not, the most beautiful soundtracks that I've ever heard from beginning to end and the last song on the cd by MADONNA is a beautiful ballad by her. Totally satisfied with my purchase. I will probably wear this one out and have to buy a new one soon. Also this soundtrack should win an Academy Award if it is nominated.

Beautifully crafted melodic score for Madonna's W.E. I was surprised by the movie (Contrary to haters, it's quite good) and by the score, It's not in your face overly produced. Haunting at times but always beautiful!

Have you ever cried when you heard music?

As I was watching this movie, I got on Amazon and immediately ordered a copy of the soundtrack. The first time I heard it, I was driving down ethereal St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans, and it made me cry because of the sheer beauty of the music. I am going to order another copy so I will have a back up. Although I am a die-hard Southern rock and blues and zydeco fan, I find this kind of music deeply touching. I love listening to this CD and cannot recommend it more highly. I have a great sound system in my car, and when I am driving, I turn this on and it takes me to a higher plane. As the reader can guess, I am reaching for sufficient words to describe the experience this music brings.

This soundtrack is enjoyable from beginning to end. It's perfect for a dinner party, or if you need music while still focussed on other work. A great buy!

Loved the movie and the soundtrack is wonderful. I was disappointed that several other period pieces from the movie were not on the soundtrack and I can't find them. But I wouldn't miss this music for anything!

I saw the movie W./E. and loved the music, which I found to be evocative and beautifully written and performed. I was a little disappointed that not all of the musical selections played in the movie were included, only those of Korzeniowski, but all in all, I have enjoyed the CD and listened to it many times. I find it enjoyable to listen to in my car, especially when stuck in traffic!

Just the score or soundtrack songs as well?
Most sites seem to agree that the album will consist of Korezeniowski's score, with "Masterpiece" concluding the collection. I haven't seen or heard anything to say that any of the other songs featured would show up (which seems weird, honestly, as "Pretty Vacant" was pretty...
