5.0 out of 5 stars Listen with all your heart, December 14, 2011
This review is from: War Horse (Audio CD)
John Williams is perhaps the most relentlessly creative, relentlessly talented film composer of the last 25 years, and that is saying a lot, as there are a number of very fine composers working in the genre today. What sets Williams apart is to use his chosen idiom--lushly romantic writing--and make it sound fresh over and over again. You know what you are going to get with a John Williams soundtrack: memorable but non-saccharine melodies, perfectly orchestrated, and true and fascinating development of themes. He taps into emotion as if plugging into the power plant of the heart, connecting us directly to the characters. His music stands alone as pure music as well, functioning as a carefully crafted tone poem. War Horse is all these things--stirring, beautiful, heartfelt music. When I listen to this score, it is immediately apparent that this is a Williams score in the finest sense of the word--it immediately sucks you in, wraps you up in this beautiful sound world, touches your intellect, your heart, and your soul, and makes you want to hear it again. It is hard to believe that so much good music has been written by one man, but here it is as proof. If you love Williams, then check out his Tintin score as well--also released around this same time. You will be amazed at the variety in the two scores, both of which are absolutely wonderful.
