When I saw Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole at the theater, I was visually impressed with the animation and the tone of the story. I was even more impressed with the score, so impressed that I wished to purchase a soundtrack right away. I had not really heard of David Hirschfelder until I had seen this film. He has rocketed straight to the top of my list of "best modern composers", right past Howard Shore. I was more impressed with this score than I was for Lord of the Rings as, being a film based on young adult fantasy novels, the quality of the music was highly unexpected, but then, the film surpassed my expectations in that regard as well. If you have not seen the film you should do so at once.

Much of the tone of this soundtrack is very dark and moody, with heavy use of dissonance and pacing to communicate and relieve tension, but I'll point out some highlights. To the Sky is a happy jaunty piece by Owl City. It stands out in stark contrast from the rest of the soundtrack, which is entirely orchestral. Flight Home has a bit of a Celtic feel to it in parts, but also embodies the majesty of Ga'Hoole with its brass fanfare in full fortissimo. There's some wonderful use of the French Horn and Trumpet with choral backing in the fanfare portion. Taken to St. Aggeles is very tense and moody and makes use of 5/4 timing and tempo changes, which help to keep the pacing very edgy. A Long Way to the Guardians is very dark. There's more use of timing and tempo variations. You Know We're Flying is quite a bit lighter, which helps to relieve some of the tension of the previous pieces. It's the bright sunrise after a stormy night, though a brief one.

Australian composer David Hirschfelder was unknown to me until about thirty minutes ago when I was browsing new scores and came across a new release, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole. The film is based on the book series Guardians of Ga'Hoole by Kathryn Lasky. I started listening to the samples on Amazon, which really only teased of what I might expect. What the hay, I decided, I'll get this one blind. Right from the get go this score does not in any way suggest that it comes from an animated feature. The score opens in Flight Home with trumpets, and a harpsichord (?), backed with choral accompaniment, which builds to a brass fanfare of the film's heroic main theme. I really quite like the theme, but unfortunately it doesn't make an appearance in the same heroic form, excepting the conclusion of the final track, More Baggy Wrinkles. Several of the tracks have a brooding and/or suspenseful action tone, such as A Long Way to the Guardians, that would seem to support the movie's description by some as a darker child's fantasy. In fact, the demeanor of the majority of the score tracks would indicate a more serious, dramatic fantasy, which rarely gets into the realm of Mickey Mouse (perhaps the first part of You Know We're Flying and the quote of Les Toreadors from Bizet's Carmen at the end of Follow the Whales Fin). Most of the tracks employ choral backing and the finale of My Soldiers My Sons features an exciting choral chant. If only it lasted longer than twenty seconds. Legend of the Guardians wont endear quite so quickly as this year's earlier hit, How to Train Your Dragon. The main theme while heroic and memorable is featured far too little on album in contrast to the latter. The score also features much more dissonance and has a more serious tone throughout.Read more ›

The Guardians of Ga'Hoole series is a great one for kids. We learn all about standing up for what's right, even though it's inconvenient, the power of learning and knowledge, the power of honesty, and unselfishness. And it's a great, great story!
