Philip Glass, The Hours Original Soundtrack

01 febrero 2009 | |

For The Hours, Glass assembles an orchestra with an emphasis on five central performers: a pianist and string quartet. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Glass' approach to the timelessness of the story is his choice not use the musical styles of any of the three time periods actually depicted in the film for his score. One could very easily have expected a score in tune with Elmer Bernstein's Far From Heaven (another contender for music awards in 2002) for The Hours, and that kind of more melodic, but equally simple score might have served well. Glass, however, reaches even further back to his classical roots for the score, and it succeeds more because of its consistency in motifs and quality rather than style.
