SCORE: War Horse

3 posts in this topic

A great review KK. Very well put together. I really enjoyed reading it and it offered further interesting analysis and observations on the musical tapestry of this beautiful score. Well done. :)

P.S. A minor criticism. The second to last paragraph: I would not call Williams' music stale as you say: The music is cold, stale and more tragic to reflect the horrors of war. I know what you are trying to say but you could also interepret it meaning that the music is boring and the same-old, same-old.

Thanks Incanus for all the kind words! Really appreciate it!

As for the use of "stale", I meant to use it a sense to describe the cold and more detached nature of the music. I was actually debating whether "stale" would be the right word because I knew that it could definitely give off the wrong vibe. I've changed it now though, thanks for the advice!
