their children and cheeses, when in reality they’re a
cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs. Focus
Features will release the film on September 26th, 2014. The teaser
trailer is already available:
10. 2013 Dario
Marianelli has been selected as one of the two composers to
participate in BAFTA's Conversations with Screen Composers series
hosted by Tommy Pearson. On November 25th he'll take the stage
at the Albert Hall's Elgar Room to discuss his career at an evening
event punctuated by live performance and film clips. More details at

06. 2013 New interview
with composer, orchestrator and
conductor Benjamin Wallfisch was released today by The Arts Desk and
you can listen to it here.

25th by UMGI/Fontana International and is currently available
to pre-order at Amazon UK . The tracklist is basically the same as
the promotional download listed in the post below with one
additional song not composed by Marianelli.
1. Chased (2:12) 2.

(2:32) 13. At The Ballet (3:54) 14. Hummingbirds
2013 Film music
publishing company Score Revolution is now offering opportunity to
listen to several tracks from Dario Marianelli's most recent score
for HUMMINGBIRD. The score is described as less percussive and
more overtly emotional than is typical for the genre. Tracks like
“Getting Better,” with its nervous yet soulful strings and
tentative, suspenseful bass highlight the film’s rich tapestry of
conflicted, constrained emotions. Even more traditionally percussive
and electronic-industrial tracks like “Do You Want to Work” and
“Joey’s Career” evoke a kind of colorful, interior melancholy
whereas “Nun in Red” and “At the Ballet” opt for the pure,
unreconstructed emotional power of the orchestra.. You can
check out the samples here. So far there is no news about possible
soundtrack album. Many thanks to FAbso for an
2013 New interview with Dario Marianelli has
been published recently by ClassicFM and it focuses mostly on his
collaboration with Dustin Hoffman on his score for QUARTET. You can
listen to the interview here.

with a concert, and starts Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Billy
Connolly and Pauline Collins. Although Hoffman has partially
directed Straight Time many years ago, QUARTET marks his first solo
directorial effort. Release date is planned for November 2nd, 2012
and you can watch the trailer below:
2012 Dario Marianelli has signed to
score upcoming thriller HUMMINGBIRD centered on an war veteran who

2012 SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN
samples are finally online. Check them out at the project page of
2012 Latest issue of Film Score
Monthly Online features interview with Dario Marianelli discussing
his score for SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN. You can read the
interview after subscribing here. Here is an
interesting quote from Dario about his latest score
incorporating wide range of scottish and arabic instruments and
merging them together with an orchestra and electronic elements:
"My very first idea, when I looked at the story,
was to try to subvert the expected sonic geography. Here you have a
Sheikh who loves Scotland, and a Scot who ends up having his life
shuffled up by meeting with a vision totally foreign to his world. I
thought the meeting and merging of those distant worlds should
somehow be reflected in the music. It is always quite a challenge in
any score, for me, to get the right balance between the various
elements. It’s not just the balance in sound levels: I would say it
is more a matter to find the point at which they are interesting and
relevant to what is happening in the story, and they do not become a
geographical shortcut empty of emotional meaning."
08. 02. 2012 CD and digital release Dario
Marianelli's score for upcoming SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN was
announced today by Lakeshore Records. The soundtrack album will be
available first as digital download on February 28th, with CD
release following on March 20th. Stay tuned for samples coming soon.
