Winter's Tale: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Soundtrack

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.
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.Read more ›
