Jon's review makes me definitely want to hear the whole score. Thanks.

You can stream the entire score on Spotify.

Any hope for Horner's score?

They're going to include Horner's score as bonus material on the Abel Korzeniowski CD. Oh wait -- Strike that! -- I got this discussion confused with the one asking us to to post lies about the previous comment. Sorry about that.

Quick update

IF LLL releases this score on cd it will NOT include Horner's music. Those rights are not available (as to who owns what it's anyone's guess).

We are still waiting to see what is going on. Apparently Sony Masterworks released it in Europe and are selling it stateside, even though they are not allowed to (it happens). It's all very muddled at this point. We hope to have something worked out shortly. If it comes out, it will most likely be late Nov/early Dec giving us another release we didn't plan on having. lol

Ironically, we might be doing John Debney's Bonnie and Clyde at the same time. Just trying to hash out the details of that deal as I type.

Considering we still do not have a sign off on ANY of the planned BLACK FRIDAY titles we might just release these two and call it a year. lol

Gotta love show bidness!

Thanks so much for the update, MV. There's been enough back and forth, I was losing track!

Was just joking -- that's why I wrote "Strike that!" Of course, with false rumors spreading like wildfire, it's probably best that you do stop it before anyone else picks it up! Sorry.

I confused -- I'm hoping you can clear it up, MV -- how could the nobody know who owns the rights to Horner'sscore? This is fresh off the press, only a few months ago. Either the studio owns it or he does, right? They know they own Abel's -- how could they not know about Horner's? Just seems odd.


Any possible additional hints at the mystery set from a TV series that you hinted at months earlier?

Its not odd, it's none of any ones business outside of Mr. Horner and the production co.
In other words -- move along there is nothing to see here. smile

Aaaaahhhhh, I see now. I remember Intrada saying Horner diodn't want "Young Guns" out. I remember one time them mentioning he didn't want a score of his paired with another.

So, in fact, the rights issue is known, to the contrary, but there's one person holding this up.

Back to the original topic of this stream: the release of Korzeniowski's music for "Romeo and Juliet," now available at iTunes. I'm torn, because while it has grown on me after listening to all the music (rather than just the samples) to the point that now I want to buy it, but still prefer having the CD, although I have certainly left a lot of money at iTunes over the past few years.

Flash: On tonight's "Jeopardy!," we found out that writer Joseph Conrad ("The Heart of Darkness") was born Jozef Korzeniowski.

How similar does it sound to A Single Man or W.E?

Re: How similar does it sound to A Single Man or W.E?

Kevin: Just follow some of the links and listen to it yourself and you be the judge. A week ago I listened to the entire soundtrack, cue by cue, and it was then that my original so-so dismissal was ratcheted up and I decided that I would buy it. Hope you like it too.

I've seen Middle School girls give better line deliveries than the gal playing Juliet. Sheesh.


Except that the gal is a Academy Award nominee (for her first role, which she won against 10.000 people) and already did 4 films starring with some of the best A-List talents in Hollywood.

Re: "Except that the gal is a Academy Award nominee (for her first role, which she won against 10.000 people) and already did 4 films starring with some of the best A-List talents in Hollywood."

Alas, that isn't saying much! When we see Sharon Lawrence beating the transcendent Emmanuelle Riva, I rest my case -- and I happen to like Sharon Lawrence and was happy for her that she won. But it essentially made the case for the embarrassingly atavistic provincialism of the Oscars!!! I was very embarrassed by some of the People's Choice-like votes that night!

[My mistake of Sharon Lawrence instead of Jennifer Lawrence would later be corrected below.]

A similar melody (if not the same melody) as the one used during the piano passages of W.E.'s finale (i.e. "Dance for Me") can be heard quite extensively throughout R&J.
