While not being the most conventional orchestral score, the mastery of James Horner's abilities to carefully, intricately orchestrate a very minimal ensemble are on full display here.
Vadim Perelman's "The Life Before Her Eyes" is a beautiful and depressing film, never really moving to anything positive, except perhaps in some of the subtle ways the dialogue is spoken, and what is said. James Horner's score could be described as the same, in that it's very quiescent, tristifical and even morbidly haunting at times... but never short of gorgeous.
In its running time of around 54 minutes, you will hear mostly the piano, an odd guitar here and there, and synthesizers. James decided to play all the piano parts himself, which is something I've enjoyed in his most recent scores. It somehow brings you as a listener, closer to the composer. Also, the way he plays the piano, sounds vastly different to anyone I've ever heard play. I don't know, I think I just feel...
this is a nice return to the simple king of score without alot of the borrowed ques that james horner often turns to.this is a very piano driven score with great vocal work aswell highley recomend this for anyone who enjoys mellow music ideal for relaxing.well done james!!
