The World's Greatest Music
Get to know the facts behind the finest scores from the 2000's, including Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings trilogy, Hans Zimmer's The Da Vinci Code and Dario Marinelli's Pride and Prejudice.
Using the piano sonatas of Beethoven as his springboard, composer Dario Marianelli set about writing a soundtrack that sounds as if it could have actually have been heard by any of Jane Austin's characters. Indeed, given that several scenes involve some of the characters playing a piano, Marianelli found himself in the unconventional position of actually having to have music ready well before the film's completion. The soundtrack also features contributions from acclaimed pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet who was accompanied by the English Chamber Orchestra. So evocative is the music in this film that it_s difficult to shake the feeling that it would have met with the approval of Jane Austin.
