I have not a single complaint about this soundtrack, save for the fact that much of the festive ball music is missing. Upon much research, I've discovered that many of them were authentic English Country dance tunes that can probably be found online or off another CD. For those interested, here's a listing:

1. Black Bess - Jane and Mr. Bingley's first dance at the Meryton Townhall and when Elizabeth asks Mr. Darcy if he dances ("Not if I can help it")

2. The Young Widow - Major ensemble dance at the Meryton Townhall while Mr. Darcy and Caroline Bingley stood watching. Included is when Charlotte was dancing with Mr. Bingley and when Mr. Darcy watched Elizabeth.

3. Wakefield Hunt - After Elizabeth tells Mr. Darcy that the way to encourage affection is through dancing, and she turns and walks away.

4. Duke of Gloucester's March - The arrival at the Netherfield ball when Elizabeth is walking through the house looking for Mr. Wickham.

5. The Bishop - Elizabeth's dance with Mr. Collins at the Netherfield ball.

Hope this helps anyone interested in the festive numbers, aside from these missing pieces, the score included on this soundtrack could not be any better!

Although I initially expected a much stronger score for the new "Pride & Prejudice", and was a bit surprised by the softer side it seems to take, I do really like the score. Having bought the soundtrack from Amazon UK over a month ago, and having seen two screenings of the new "Pride & Prejudice" film in the last two weeks, I can rightfully say that the music really flows well with the film, and never overpowers it. It circles, entwines, prods, calms and flows: always appropriate and always divine.

The beautiful tracks like "Meryton Townhall" or "Another Dance" where they dance a lively tune, or the aptly named "Militia Marches In" with a nice military feel..."The Secret Life of Daydreams" is beautiful: the wonderfully haunting "Your Hands Are Cold," and "Mrs. Darcy" has a nice build and feel...for those of you who do English Country Dance/Regency Dance like me, you find yourself looking for the tune for "Mr. Beveridge's Maggot" (which is what Elizabeth & Darcy dance to in the 1995 version), instead you will find "A Postcard to Henry Purcell", which is haunting, mellow & beautiful in its own right.

My favorite tracks, "Liz on Top of the World," builds to a more strong tone, and has a gorgeous feel and "Your Hands Are Cold" is both strong and soft, loving and harsh, and is I feel, the best track in the film: the imagery in the film that goes along with it is beautiful, and complements each other well. All in all, a highly recommended score to go along with a highly recommended film!

Just as the new film of "Pride and Prejudice" stands in stark contrast to all previous adaptations, so does its score break away from the mold of all previous Austen-adaptation scores. Oh, yes, there's the familiar trilling piano we've grown to expect, but this score is more along the lines of a Merchant-Ivory film; aching, moody, and transcendent.

Written by Dario Marianelli and performed by pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the brief score only clocks in at forty-two minutes and twenty-two seconds, but that is plenty of time for some great music. From haunting violin work ("A Postcard from Henry Purcell") to the beautiful theme for Lizzy herself ("Liz on Top of the World"), the music is rich and varied. "Arrival at Netherfield" has a jittery sense of excitement, and all the tracks composed for the dances in the film ("Meryton Townhall" and "Another Dance") are lively and joyous, as is "Can't Slow Down". "Your Hands Are Cold" is the true standout, however; sweeping, beautiful, and, like the scene it was written for, unforgettable.

The only element I think lacking is a stronger main theme for Darcy himself, which would have been nice. Really, other than that, I can find no fault with Marianelli's work. If you are a fan of the new film (or a writer looking for background music), this is a must-have.

GRADE: B+

I was wondering how many period pieces had been worked into the musical score for the latest theatrical version of Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" and discovered the answer is none. Composer Dario Marianelli ("The Brothers Grimm") is working with the same instrumentation that Austen would have been familiar with, which would be a chamber orchestra and works dominated by the piano and/or strings. The result of this approach is simply to wish that more historical films employed the same approach. Marianelli also gets credit for developing his score in reaction to the novel itself before the screenplay was really developed (at least that is what I hear, and if true it deserves to be mentioned). I find the score somewhat reminiscent of Michael Nyman's for "The Piano," although that is more because of the use of the instrument, played by Jean-Yves Thibaudet most notably on tracks like "Dawn," "The Living Sculptures of Pemberly," and "Arrival to Netherfield," than on the type of piano music. There is certainly not a dominant theme to the "Pride & Prejudice" score as we have for "The Piano." Often the music is more simplistic, but this suits the purpose of finely etching out the character of Elizabeth Bennett on the piano.

The tracks are not really arranged in order of the film's chronology; for example, "Georgiana," the piano piece played by Darcy's sister that is developed into fuller concerto, comes later in the film but appears here as the sixth track, sandwiched between "The Militia Marches In" and "Arrival to Netherfield." However, by the end of the disc the final scenes of the film are played out in the established order, with "Your Hands Are Cold," "Mrs.
