Following their highly welcome CD Music from the Edge, which featured John Corigliano's rejected score from Edge of Darkness, Perseverance is set to release another, and much more famous, rejected score. Philip Lambro was the first composer on one of the most acclaimed films of the 1970s, only to be replaced by Jerry Goldsmith, whose classic score earned the composer an Oscar nomination and was recently picked in a poll of current composers as one of the greatest film scores of all time. For contractual reasons, Perseverance is not allowed to spotlight the film's actual title and are calling their Lambro CD (which also features concert pieces by the composer) LOS ANGELES, 1937, but let's put it this way -- forget it, Jake, it's... 


I am on vacation this week and had to upload this column early, so if anything noteworthy happens in film music between Monday, November 19th and Thursday, November 22nd, you are unlikely to learn it here.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC

ANNA KARENINA - Dario Marianelli

"But the film itself is the very opposite of stagy. The camera hurtles through the scenery as if in hungry pursuit; the lush colors of the upholstery and the costumes pulsate with feeling; the music (by Dario Marianelli) howls and sighs and the performances are fresh, energetic and alive. Compressing the important events of Tolstoy’s thousand pages into an impressively swift two hours and change, Mr. Wright turns a sweeping epic into a frantic and sublime opera."

A.O. Scott, New York Times

"Techinically, however, this ‘Anna’ is glorious, from Seamus McGarvey’s bejeweled lensing and Dario Marianelli’s delicate score, to Sarah Greenwood’s exquisite, Faberge-egg production design."

Leslie Felperin, Variety

BREAKING DAWN, PART 2 - Carter Burwell

"Like something out of a telenovela, [director Bill] Condon cuts between characters standing around staring at each other, the dramatic score punctuating each piercing look. Maybe they're reading each other's minds, sharing visions of the future or shielding each other from harm. Maybe they just can't think of anything to say."

Christy Lemire, Associated Press

SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK - Danny Elfman

"Danny Elfman’s music and the soundtrack supervised by Sue Jacobs (Stevie Wonder’s 'Ma Cherie amour’ has a key plot function) compulsively thread in and out of the action, always serving to reflect Pat’s heightened mental/emotional states."

Justin Chang, Variety
