What Is The Last Score You Listened To? (older scores)


Recommended Posts

All the three scores recorded with Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman will always be special for me and related in a certain way. I love them very much.

- Schindler's List

- Seven Years in Tibet

- Memoirs of a Geisha

Here's my "Remembrances" playlist (made with the OST):

01 Theme From Schindler's List

02 Jewish Town (Krakow Ghetto - Wint

03 Remembrances (track 13)
04 Seven Years in Tibet from Seven Y

05 Young Dalai Lama and Ceremonial C

06 Leaving Ingrid

07 Sayuri's Theme

08 Going to School

09 The Chaiman's Waltz

10 Brush on Silk

11 Chiyo's Prayer

12 Becoming a Geisha

Powerful stuff. My favourite track is definitely "Saw Bitch Workhorse". The way the music supplements the Nebuchadnezzar's ascent and descent through the clouds...honestly, Don Davis did a terrific job not just for this film but throughout the entire Matrix trilogy as well.

It's a very necessary part of the Christmas season. The Nexus sequence in particular obviously. The only thing I don't like about the score is the somewhat claustrophobic recording, and that synth-timpani thing that McCarthy uses. That has an association, for me anyway, with low-budget TV scoring. I don't think it's a good sound.

I do like it. And I don't like it. Hard to explain.

But this is one of my favourite Christmas pieces ever:

I like the score, but I've never particularly liked that cue. To me it sounds overly saccharine and artificial. And I always thought that was the point - I'm surprised nearly everyone else seems to love it. Do people also consider Picard's Christmas vision desirable?
