    How does it compare with other Portman scores? To be honest, it's been many years since I bought a new score by her - most of them are so similar to one another I didn't see the point in buying any more. Does this have something extra to offer? There's no denying the appeal of her melodic music, but I don't need another variation on Cider House Rules (etc).

    It's the same like anything else in the genre she's written. Solemn, melodic, calm.

    Yeah, it doesn't do anything new and if you weren't into Portman before, this will not convert you. If you want something like that, listen to Beloved, her best work to date (and with no strings or anything resembling a traditional orchestra in sight).

    I detested Beloved! I love her warm, summery things, I just don't know if I need any more of them.

  1. Counting the assignments not listing, coming up, in that listing, she's got like nearly ten or more scores coming. Hollywood seems to sudenly have gone Portman crazy. I'm not complaining. :-)

    Now if only they'd go Shire crazy, Barry crazy, etc...

    Interesting take-over of another classical-oriented film composer, by the Zimmer camp wink

    Rachel Portman and Lorne Balfe have composed the score for the documentary Girl Rising

    Presumably they didn't actually collaborate, but Balfe was brought in to write additional music perhaps?
  5. I thought the same thing and started loooking around, but I found the websites of a couple people who worked on the score, and they claim both composers. Further investigation is required besides an internet search.

    One was a vocalist, an attractive brunette lady. I can't recall her name at the moment.

    Hoping the score will be enjoyable 'cause the movie looks like a flop.
