W.E. music from the motion picture by Abel Korzenowski

Il y a quelques jours, je me demandais quelle prochaine musique de film allait composer Abel Korzenowski (le même qui a composé la musique de l'excellent film A single man dont nous avions beaucoup parlé ici). Et le hasard a fait que hier, Bruno a eu la bonne idée de m'envoyer un lien pour écouter une nouvelle bande originale d'un film...heureuse coïncidence...Alors merci m'ssieur !

Dès les premières notes, on reconnaît la touche du compositeur, ses musiques évocatrices, empruntes de nostalgie et de mélancolie et bien d'autres émotions encore...


The Golden Globe nominated music from Madonna’s upcoming film W.E. composed, orchestrated and produced by Abel Korzeniowski , which also includes Madonna’s Golden Globe award winning song “Masterpiece”.

The score was recorded in April 2011 at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London with a 60-piece orchestra conducted by Terry Davies including piano, violin and viola solos.

The Polish born Los Angeles based Korzeniowski previously wrote the original score for the Tom Ford film A Single Man for which he also received a Golden Globe nomination.

“The prevailing sense of obsession was what inspired me in W.E. — the irrational compulsion to sacrifice everything and anything for love – a love that could easily be just an illusion. In my music, I wanted to reflect those powerful and conflicting emotions through a web of melodic themes, which relentlessly repeat and constantly swing between despair and sorrow, and hope and joy,” commented Korzeniowski.

“W.E.” tells the story of American divorcee Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and England’s King Edward (James D’Arcy) who abdicated his thrown to be with the woman he loved. It is considered one of the greatest love stories of the 20th century. The story is told through the eyes of a modern day New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Abby Cornish). Composer Korzeniowski masterfully and seamlessly bridged the two unique worlds of Europe in the 30′s and 40′s and the contemporary Manhattan environment of a woman lost in her dreams of the perfect love.(source)
