Dario Marianelli's Everest
25-Sep-2015 -

          Varèse Sarabande has released the score for Everest,
             digitally and on CD. The album features the original                    
                     music composed by Dario Marianelli.
          "My initial instinctive approach to the score, which our          
           director, Baltasar Kormákur, liked and encouraged me          
            to follow, was to have a calling voice, a distant siren        
         call," explained Marianelli. "It is at the same time a voice        
          that represents the ancient goddess-like mountain, but       
        also a luring and irresistable calling to one's own destiny."

Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world's highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encontered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.

"The opposite point of the musical compass is the 'conquering' attitude of the mountaineers, a kind of macho, gogetting approach to nature," Marianelli continued, "which is reflected in a much more propulsive, percussive and energetic musical idiom."

Available digitally and on CD from Varèse Sarabande and, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
