Editorial Reviews

New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a young girl, who is dying. Soundtrack features music by Hans Zimmer and Rupert Gregson-Williams and the song Miracle performed by KT Tunstall

Gregson-Williams and Zimmer have crafted a truly touching score. The score is subtle, drifting onto the scene with "Look Closely" with lush string-work and delicate piano. The work has a very pleasant tone: understated, but immensely pleasant to the ear, punctuated by moments of stunning beauty. "What's the Best Thing You've Ever Stolen" is delightfully romantic, and "I Love Blood on the Snow" will catch you by surprise with sudden but beautiful urgency on the strings, before exploring the complex main theme.

This main theme is curious, particularly coming from the RC school of scoring. It exists in two parts, first on strings, which then pass to a simple but pleasant piano melody. The theme's best performances come in a quiet and subtle form in the second half of "Can You Hear Your Heart?" (the highlight of the work) and a full ensemble performance at the end of "Becoming Stars". "The Girl With the Red Hair" is also noticeable for an inspiring orchestral outburst, accompanied by some gleefully fluttering woodwinds.

"Winter's Tale" is a delightful and fanciful romantic score that doesn't have a single distasteful cue. The only thing holding it back from a full 5 star rating is the fact that some segments, though still immensely listenable, are not particularly interesting or unique. Also, a few of what I assume to be action cues are a bit standard. For its beautiful highlights, though, "Winter's Tale" is worth a purchase for fans of scores.

The most romantic CD in a long long time. I rest with this beautiful music CD. Sometimes at night I watch the stars and wonder if I will be one one day. The last song MIRACLE is absolutly beautiful. The words and singer make you feel so good about being alive. Buy the CD and go see the MOVIE, you will fall in love all over again and again. This is a music love story.

Winter’s Tale is a film that has all the ambition but none of the execution. Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman makes his directorial debut with this fantastical fairy tale misstep, and he enlisted Hans Zimmer and Rupert Gregson-Williams to craft the lush score that accompanies it. Hans and Rupert have worked together in the past on many projects, and honestly this was a breath of fresh air to hear Rupert behind something other than an Adam Sandler vehicle. What we have here is a score that has tons of wondrous elements. There are delicate nuances of budding love, deep lush strings, impending danger and is all wisps together for a wonderful journey. However there just seems to be a lack of focus behind it all that prevents it from really pulling together a meaningful emotional journey. The film does have a truly fantastical plot that includes Lucifer, Lucifer’s henchman, a guardian angel horse, reincarnation and love to weave it all together. So this is indeed a “tale”, and I think Hans and Rupert successfully approached it that way.

You can almost imagine the music saying “Once upon a time...” as we get the story under way, and what follows is a story that will take you to some wonderful places. The music has a gentle side to it, but at times can be harsh and aggressive. The piano is featured prominently in the score, and the melodies do a wonderful job of painting the characters in the music. The score contains some big swells and large moments as we move along the journey, which do a great job of pulling you in. Since this story is in an essence a fairy tale, the music does tend to get melodramatic. At times the music pushes extremely hard, and then at times pulls really far back.

I bought this score mainly because of the names of the composers. I have great faith in Hans Zimmer's ability to create music for a wide variety of genres. This score further solidified faith in his scoring abilities. Zimmer and Gregson-Williams created a very powerful, beautiful score for this film. The score has a simple, elegant theme played with piano and strings or even the full orchestra. Like all scores, it has its more tense pieces, but like "I Am Legend" or Lady In the Water's" scores, it is focused on the simple, emotional, beautiful aspect of music. I expected a good, quiet score, but this one exceeded my expectations, becoming one of my favorite quieter scores. The theme is beautiful, even though it is not extremely memorable, using mainly piano and dustings to convey elegant beauty. This is an excellent score for those who love the softer side of instrumental music, and a great way to diversify a soundtrack collection for film score lovers.

It's Hans Zimmer, what's not to like? I have read the book many times over and was reluctant to see the movie. The movie captured the essence of the book in that it focuses on the love story between Peter Lake and Beverly - the few new elements introduced in the movie worked well (otherwise the movie would have been three times the length - although what's the downside to that? actually, I'd like to see it as a TV series something along the lines of Once Upon Time.........or Bitten......). The sound track is subtle and captures the romance of the movie.
