Soundtrack Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

UPI

Rating: ★★★★☆

Het bekendste werk van Tolstoj Anna Karenina zorgt opnieuw voor een samenwerking tussen componist Dario Marianelli en de Britse regisseur Joe Wright. Het resultaat van dit  kostuumdrama is alweer een prachtig staaltje van muzikaal genot. Marianelli vond deze film een van de moeilijkste die hij tot nu toe heeft gedaan:

“There were huge opportunities by the film not being literal. But because those opportunities were opened up, they had to be taken, and that’s hard work. I can’t remember a film where I worked so hard and so long. For more than a year, on and off. It was a lot of work up front, written before the script was even finished, particularly the two waltzes. I had to write them first, then adjust them when they were shot and then adjust them again during the editing. It was an inordinate amount of work, but all worth it.”

De passie en romantiek druipt van het scherm en dat dankt Wright vooral aan de prachtige muziek. Het is een soundtrack waar allerlei elementen met elkaar in contact komen. Dat vertelde de componist nog aan AwardsLine:

“The folk music, the earthy music toward which the character of Levin (Domhnall Gleeson) is attracted, and then the more sophisticated music of the aristocracy and also the pretense, the life on a stage. Then gradually more ideas came in, and they started interbreeding. We ended up with a lot less folk music and more of this new entity of the bands—rougher sounds coming into the sophisticated orchestra but still very pure high violin over simple piano or music-box notes.”

Deze score verdient op zijn minst een Oscarnominatie.
