Patrick Doyle: Ten Best Movie Soundtracks
Eragon has a huge, dramatic fantasy score with Patrick Doyle marshalling all the forces of the London Symphony Orchestra with impressive results. It was Doyle's most upbeat score since Much Ado About Nothing and it's grand stuff all the way - with trumpets, cymbals and flutes galore playing at full force. The film was no great shakes - and nothing compared to The Lord of the Rings saga which had captivated audiences at the time. But Doyle's score stands out as one of his finest achievements.
