Take a musical journey through some of the 90s finest moments in film music including The Piano by Michael Nyman and John Williams’ Schindler List and Saving Private Ryan.
This Sam Mendes directed, Kevin Spacey-starring 90s satire on the ‘American Dream’ followed office worker Lester Burnham (Spacey) as he becomes infatuated with the beautiful teenager next door. Thomas Newman’s eclectic, minimalist, spacious score was the perfect accompaniment to this cynical, clever film and helped lift that ‘rose petal scene’ to ironic heights. Like the movie, the soundtrack was a critical and popular success, but missed out on an Oscar – a disappointment Newman found difficult to hide on the night.
