The composer managed to write original music that sounds as if if could have been written in the mid-19th century by an gifted, highly original, yet still Scottish woman, and make it sound contemporary at the same time. I don't know how he pulled it off. It worked wonderfully with the film and conveyed a sense of passion, fun, tragedy, and romance. Do yourself a favor and see the video or listen to this.

I think there are very few film scores that make a lot of sense without the movie. This music is beautiful and timeless whether you have seen the movie or not. But you should see the movie!

The music is a delight to the ears and soulfully touching. Listening to this, it's hard to not have mental images floating around. I love all the songs. There are few cds I can listen to that I love all the songs but To the Edge of the Earth, Heart Asks Pleasure First, Here to There, and Promise are some of my favorites on this cds. I highly recommend this soundtrack and watching the movie.

The movie was dark and depressing, but two of the piano songs are great. "The Heart Asks Pleasure First" and "The Promise" are outstanding piano compositions. The other songs on the album are what I call fillers. I don't play the piano, but if I did I would love to seat down at a party and in a relaxed way, calmly play these two songs with great expertise. These two numbers take your mind off into another world. They are memorizing.

Excellent work. However, at times (especially when you are listening to the album in its entirety) the music can get somewhat repetitive (this is coming from a Philip Glass fan) in the sense that Nyman was repackaging the same compositions in order to give the film enough music for the entire run time. By themselves, the melodies are fantastic. But I believe that there is simply too much fluff in this album.

I fell in love with the movie so the music was a great addition. Every song is amazing and beautiful to listen to. If you're the type of person to like Piano music then this is a must. You can almost picture the emotion and feel it without watching the movie.

If you are looking for the original movie soundtrack of piano music, this is not it. This is a recording of chamber music. I was dissapointed, played it once, and I doubt it will be played again.

For the piano players it contains haunting music i myself have the sheet music & the mood that passes through you is my favorite not to mention the first Big My Secret which is magnificent in that it is 100% pure diatonic masterpiece which i think involves considerable difficulty in construction of an uncanny caliber!
