Panu Aaltio Tale Of A Lake
3-Feb-2016 - In 2012, MovieScore Media’s release of a Tale of a Forest by Finnish composer Panu Aaltio was voted as the Best Original Documentary Score by the International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA). 2016 sees the release of Tale Of A Lake where writer/director/producer Marko Röhr and editor/director Kim Saarniluoto return with another breathtaking overview of the country’s natural beauties. The documentary focuses on the world of rivers and the thousands of lakes of Finland with stories ranging from birds, fish and their spawn, to the lives of critically endangered seal pups. Featuring the narration of Samuli Edelmann, and Johanna Kurkela as the voice of the mystical water spirit Ahitar, Tale of a Lake is as much of an emotional journey and a breathtaking travelogue as its predecessor was.

Riz Ortolani's The Yellow Rolls-Royce
24-Jan-2016 - Disques Cinémusique has released the score for The Yellow Rolls-Royce. The movie tells three stories about the lives and loves of those who own a certain yellow Rolls-Royce: First purchased by the Marquess of Frinton for his wife as a belated anniversary present, the Marchiness finds her own use for the vehicle - one which prompts her husband to sell the car in disgust. Gangster Paolo Maltese's moll, Mae, thinks the Rolls is a "classy" car in which to tour Paolo's home town in Italy. By the outbreak of World War II, the car has come into the possession of socialite Gerda Millet. While on her way to visit Yugoslavian royalty, Gerda and the Rolls become (at first) unwitting and then (eventually) most willing participants in the Yugoslavian fight. The score is composed by Riz Ortolani.
Available for download from Disques Cinémusique.

Ennio Morricone wins Golden Globe for The Hateful Eight
10-Jan-2016 - The Hateful Eight writer-director Quentin Tarantino made a major flub when he took to the stage to accept the Golden Globe for Best Original Score on behalf of the film's composer, Ennio Morricone. The director said Morricone had "never won an award for any one individual movie at a U.S. awards show" - but as many film buffs were quick to point out on Twitter, Tarantino was wrong. The acclaimed composer has in fact won two Golden Globes, one for The Mission in 1987, and one for The Legend of 1900 in 2000. Although Morricone has never won an Academy Award for a specific movie.

Carter Burwell's Carol
22-Nov-2015 - Varèse Sarabande has released Carol, digitally and on CD. Set in 1950s New York, two women from very different backgrounds, find themselves in the throes of love in CAROL. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. The score is composed by Carter Burwell. The songs consists of Jazz and Pop gems of the era portrayed in the film; Billie Holliday, Les Paul and Mary Ford etc. “There is no widely accepted explanation for the importance of music to humans, but one possibility is its ability to express and relieve emotional tensions that can’t be put into words,” explained Burwell. “In CAROL, two women are romantically attracted to each other but the culture of 1950’s America hasn’t provided them with a language for this. Expressing these inexpressible feelings is one of the roles of the score in this film.”

Elmer Bernstein's Spies Like Us
14-Nov-2015 - Varèse Sarabande will release in the ENCORE series Spies Like Us, a wonderfully fun and over-the-top score from 1985 by the great and legendary Elmer Bernstein! This score has been out of print for decades, so the film's 30th anniversary seems the perfect time to bring it back for a new generation. Chevy Chase teams with fellow SNL alum Dan Aykroyd to play government desk jockeys who fake their way into becoming U.S. spies. The two stars share a gleeful chemistry as agents whose limitations are limitless, and director John Landis gooses along the antics of Spies Like Us, a funfest that plays like a Bob Hope-Bing Crosby road movie. "The movie has since become a cult classic; one that those of a certain age and gender have committed to near memory and can spout lines and scenes on command like a new Army recruit. " - Bullz-eye.

Harry Escott's River
8-Nov-2015 - From Silva Screen Records comes the score for River. Abi Morgan’s script focuses on the emotional repercussions of detective John River’s condition: the conflicts between the world as experienced by River and by those around him. These conflicts create humour, sadness and spirituality but also confusion and embarrassment. River attempts to deal with this, to function ‘normally’. Harry Escott reflects that in an intensely subjective soundtrack, refracted through River’s experience of the world. Says Harry: “I recall one of my first meetings when we were discussing a very brief scene in episode one. It was explained to me that the music needed to help the audience feel the shock of a revelation, whilst at the same time comment on the sadness River’s condition - but without being too sad or downbeat as the music also had to reflect the mundanity of this experience from River’s perspective. I knew I was in for a tough ride from that point!”
