The weird, eclectic score+song soundtrack for MOONRISE KINGDOM is one of my top 2 or 3 favorite film music recordings of 2012. I love Desplat's "Heroic Weather Conditions" cues, and particularly Part 7, After the Storm which pays homage to Britten's "Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, Opus 34: Themes A - F" by elucidating the orchestral components of Desplat's score, and plays over the end titles. The young boy who narrates it does so with magnificent intelligence and enthusiasm. I also found myself chasing down the recording of Britten's cycle of practice exercises for boy's choir entitled "Songs From Friday Afternoon" (available on Amazon), a couple of which are featured in the soundtrack. Don't know if Desplat chose the Britten and other non-original score materials but the choice of music for this oddly loveable film was inspired, IMO. I definitely plan to see GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL with an ear open to the music.
