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 bought this because I had seen the film and because it had a wide selection of music, of different types, just right for leisure listening on a long trip, or an overnight sail on the Chesapeake Bay. Look at the music listed. There's a good mixture of classical and popular (from the 30's or 40's I think) and the excerpts from long operas or symphonies are just right for someone (like me) who's not a classical afficianado. I suppose there are ways to listen to some of the tracks before you buy it. It may not be right for everyone, but we're certainly glad we bought it.

I saw the movie Quartet recently, and fell in love with it - the actors, the story, the music, the setting - the whole package. When I saw the music from the movie, I knew I had to have it, so purchased it immediately from Amazon.
If you love classical music (and possibly even if you don't), this is an exceptional selection of music you will know, from Gilbert and Sullivan, to Verdi, Haydn, Rossini etc. In my car the other day, I heard Marianelli and Wilf's Descent; it immediately brought a smile to my lips. If you haven't seen the movie, see it, then buy the soundtrack. You won't regret it.

Even if you didn't see the movie, you will love this collection of popular classics performed by legendary musicians. Familiar artists play or sing music from the film and conjur memories of both the movie, Quartet, and of real life experiences linked to the music. It is an eclectic collection which includes opera and operetta, jazz and swing.
