Music recommendation this week is the Original Motion Picture Score for Atonement.
The marching click of typewriter keystrokes finds itself right at home amidst ominous piano pieces and symphonic heartbreak in this alternately tragic and lush score. Ironically, Dario Marianelli's compositions shine brightest in the darkest spaces of war; there, sweeping violins evoke the eerie isolation of post-battle carnage and survival. Meanwhile, piano solos by Jean-Yves Thibaudet reek of romantic havoc. The theme throughout is longing, a concept which, in the end, makes Atonement wrenching aural proof that parting is indeed such sweet sorrow.
