What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Pride and Prejudice / Jean-Yves Thibaudet
Pride and Prejudice is a story of the late 18th or early 19th century. Thank goodness the makers of this latest adaptation left both story and music in that time. As universal as its themes may be, its themes need to be of a piece with Austen's sparkling dialogue. The music is new, but it belongs to the story. It doesn't call attention to itself, except in rare cases like The Militia Marches In, where it's supposed to. I love Austen, I admit; I'm a sucker for a good romantic tale. The best compliment I can pay is to think that the author herself would have approved of the score. Pride and Prejudice
