Title - 'Atonement' (Decca)
Artist - Dario Marianelli & Jean-Yves Thibaudet

Well, it's so good to know, that once the great composers, such as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Maurice Jarre, and so on, will be gone, the film music lovers won't be left with the void of silence. Dario Marianelli is one of the greatest hopes of film music today. His masterful Oscar-nominated score for Pride and Prejudice drew attention on him right away, and we are not dissapointed in him this time either.

Marianelli's music for the beautiful romantic drama 'Atonement' starring Keira Knightley and James MacAwoy, and directed by Joe Wwright(who directed P&P, as his brilliant first feature film) is nothing less than great. His themes are sweeping, and fluent, like a buquet of floating emotions. I particularly liked the use of an extraordinary percussionlike sound, a circa 1935-typewriter, which is, no dobt, a unique choice of the composer.

Altogether I can state without regret, that Dario Marianelli's own musical style and presence in the world of modern film music is firm as a rock, and his Gloden Globe-nominated score for Atonement can aspire easily for a well deserved Academy Award for best original score in 2008.
