The World's Greatest Music
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen enjoyed music. She played the piano every day, compiled her own albums of sheet music, and danced when others played. And music plays an important role in her novels and movie adaptations of her books.
For the 2007 movie about Jane Austen's early life, 'Becoming Jane' - starring Anne Hathaway - composer Adrian Johnston reviewed the Austen family's music books to inspire his own soundtrack. It also features 'Deh vieni, non tardar' from Mozart's 'The Marriage of Figaro'. The soundtrack received a nomination for Best Original Film Score at the 2008 Ivor Novello Awards.
