The Film Music Of Thomas Newman
26-Aug-2008 - Silva Screen Records has released The Film Music of Thomas Newman. This excellent collection features Newman’s scores from the 1990s, when he matured as a composer and formed his own recognisable music language. Featuring highlights from seven of Thomas Newman’s Oscar nominated soundtracks including Tte now cult status theme for American Beauty, Six Feet Under, Shawshank Redemption and his latest score The Good German. Newman’s scores for The Player, American Beauty, and Erin Brockovich exemplify his more percussive, "experimental" sound, while his scores for The Shawshank Redemption and Road to Perdition use conventional orchestration equally effectively. The music is performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic and the London Music Works.
