Format: Audio CD
Since the very first years of cinema Romeo & Juliet, William Shakespeare’s timeless story of passionate doomed love, has been a well of inspiration for filmmakers, ranging from George Cukor’s 1936 film starring Norma Shearer, the classic Franco Zeffirelli version from 1968, and Baz Luhrmann’s revisionist interpretation from 1996, as well as the popular musical West Side Story, which replaces Montagues and Capulets with Sharks and Jets, and moves the story from Verona to New York City. Director Carlo Carlei’s new version was written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes and is a comparatively straightforward re-telling of the story, with Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth in the lead roles as the star cross’d lovers, and a supporting cast that includes Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgård, Ed Westwick and Kodi Smit-McPhee. The film is visually sumptuous, with opulent production design and costumes, and features an equally sumptuous and opulent score by Polish composer Abel Korzeniowski.

Korzeniowski was a fairly late replacement for the film’s original composer, James Horner, who had written and recorded his entire score several months previously; the exact reasons for Horner’s music being rejected are as yet unclear, but whatever the case may be, Korzeniowski was brought in just weeks before the film was due to be released. In these circumstances, scores often go one of two ways: either the new score is rushed and perfunctory, a testament to the short timescale given to the composer, or the new score is absolutely inspired, with the composer seizing his opportunity with both hands and excelling under pressure. Thankfully, Korzeniowski’s Romeo & Juliet is the latter – a sweeping, soaring, romantic masterpiece that is easily one of 2013’s finest musical achievements.

I have so much music I will never be able to listen to it all, BUT this CD is the most beautiful music I have in my library and I listen to it every
day. I fell in love with the score while watching the movie and couldn't wait to order it. Fortunately, it came quickly and it will always remain
my favorite. It is all instrumental and romantic and very relaxing. I can't describe it, all I can do is say that if you enjoyed the movie and
remember the background music this is just an expansion of that music and I can't imagine anyone who likes this type of music not to like
this. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

I love classical/movie theme music. I haven't heard a good classical movie song in a while, let alone a whole soundtrack.
This whole soundtrack is really beautiful. While composers like Hanz Zimmer try to give an epic sound that accompanies action movies, this feels more personal and fitting for this movie (and much prettier in the end).
I guess I have to watch the movie now that corresponds to it :).
