master composer by Roland (March 10, 2004)
For a while i had the score for Ruby in my possesion of this composer but it didn't do that much to me, but recently i bought the scores of the final countdown and this one; antony and cleopatra.
This is the score to the little known film by charlton heston, one of my favourite actors, and tells the story followed by the book of shakespeare.
The score is as good as the film would want to be. It's the ill-fated love story expressed in music.
The orchestra sounds big like john williams with his best works, but scott makes it all sound very intimate.
Several themes appear already in the long overture of the first track . In the second track we get the love theme and it's wonderfull. The rest of the tracks will keep you hooked up all till the end of the over an hour long score.
This is really on of the big works and John Scott has got me hooked.....
