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

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire / Patrick Doyle
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire I don't envy Patrick Doyle's challenge in composing music for this fourth Harry Potter film. Following in the footsteps of John Williams would be hard, but creating a score that uses Williams' themes but sounds fresh and new; that's a frightening task. As I wrote in my other blog, I think Goblet of Fire is easily the best of the films; where the first two were reverent to a fault, and the third took some tentative steps, here we finally have a film that's as exciting and disconcerting as J.K. Rowling's books. And Doyle's music is a big part of that. Somehow he makes a full orchestra sound just a little bit irreverent. Just the thing as Harry and friends embrace teendom.
