The Soloist [Music from the Motion Picture]

The Soloist [Music from the Motion Picture]

by Dario Marianelli



Based on a true story, The Soloist is the amazing tale of an unlikely friendship and the redemptive power of music. LA Times reporter Steve Lopez (Robert Downey, Jr.) befriends homeless Juilliard-trained cellist Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx) while looking for a new article for the paper. Lopez discovers that Nathaniel was once a promising classical musician at Juilliard, but various pressures and mounting schizophrenia caused him to drop out. Lopez attempts to help Nathaniel regain his dignity, develop his musical talent, and free himself of his demons.

The Soloist features original music by Golden Globe® and Academy® Award-winning composer Dario Marianelli, as well as popular and powerful works by Beethoven (Eroica, Ninth Symphony). It is directed by Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice).

The music wasn't as appealing to listen to on the CD as it had been in the movie. Although I enjoyed the music it doesn't have the flow I had expected. Wouldn't be a soundtrack to have without seeing the movie first.
