The Magic & Majesty of Alexandre Desplat
Posted By: Tim Burden 11/30/2014 - 9:00 PM

One of the perks of working in the cinema industry is the opportunity to hear multiple new film scores each week. Some good, some bad, some inaudible. Girl with a Pearl Earring was the first time I heard Alexandre Desplat's music and, like many others, I was suitably impressed and looked forward to hearing more from this composer.

Desplat's output didn't disappoint and he continues to deliver the best that music has to offer for film. It is well time
