TROY (2CD) (CD)
Composed by: James Horner

Epic James Horner soundtrack gets expanded 2-CD premiere! Inspired by Homer’s The Iliad, vivid telling of events surrounding the Trojan War brings alive many iconic characters and images so well remembered even today: Helen Of Troy, “the face that launched a thousand ships”, Paris, Hector, that infamous Greek gift, the Trojan horse, Agamemnon, Priam, Menelaus, Odysseus… and towering above all, Achilles, immortal warrior born of Thetis and Peleus, invincible in battle save his one vulnerability: the heel. Prestigious actors bringing everything to life include Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Peter O’Toole, Sean Bean, Orlando Bloom, Garrett Hedlund, Brendan Gleeson, Brian Cox, Diane Kruger, Rose Byrne. David Benioff provides literate script, Wolfgang Petersen directs with visual flair. Customary for composer James Horner, the musical approach included massive (and lengthy!) action sequences, richly harmonized main themes plus moments of great subtlety, while remaining anchored with the emotional core of Petersen’s film, illuminating the fact that this was surely “Greek tragedy”, with characters on both sides of the legendary conflict worthy of our concern. That said, when the dust does settle, massive battle cues do take center stage if only for their sheer weight and rhythmic energy! Warner Sunset Reprise label issued album in 2004, containing 75 generous minutes of score, including “Remember” performed by Josh Groban with Tanja Tzarovska. While 2 tracks from that album were unavailable for licensing, happily a veritable treasure chest of previously unreleased music was available, including both the album and film versions of “Remember”. Highlights from the new material are voluminous but deserving a spotlight are: rousing “Never Hesitate” training scene between Achilles and beloved cousin Patroclus that introduces Achilles’ heroic theme in action fanfare fashion, complete nearly 11-minute version of powerful “The Myrmidons” for initial grand battle between Greeks and Trojans on the beaches of Troy, complete “Temple Fight” for scene that follows aforementioned battle, complete nearly 10-minute “Trojan Victory” cue, dramatic “Achilles Saves Briseis” sequence, intimate sequence “Hector Instructs Wife” prior to his emotional single combat with Achilles, complete 9-minute “The Wooden Horse” music, many others! Entire 118-minute 2-CD set presented in crisp stereo from digital scoring session mixes made by Simon Rhodes at Todd-AO Scoring in Studio City, California, all courtesy WaterTower Music and Warner Bros. Colorful booklet design by Kay Marshall, literate notes by John Takis. James Horner composes, conducts. Intrada Special Collection 2-CD set available while quantities and interest remain! -INTRADA
