CD Reviews

One of the best soundtracks of the past ten years
Edward Aycock | New York, NY United States | 04/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Blending an original score by Wojciech Kilar with complementary pieces by Schubert, this recording creates a definite mood. One of my favorite original pieces is the opening track, "My Life Before Me" which is so evocative that it's hard not to be touched by it in some way. This is not a sountrack full of generic, John Williams-like orchestrations; rather, each piece stands on its own.

It's not necessary to be familiar with either the film or Henry James' original novel to appreciate this great soundtrack; while I may have some problems with the creative choices made by the director of the film, this disc is one of my all-time favorites of any genre.
One of the most beautiful soundtracks I've ever heard

"The moment I first watched the movie, I was spellbound by the beautiful music accompanying it. It is wondrous and moving complementing the movie perfectly!"
One of the best film scores in 1996
Lilien Runje | 11/01/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wojciech Kilar has composed one of the best and most beautiful film scores of 1996 with "Portrait of a Lady" whose main title came to him on a plane from Australia back to Poland. If you love exquisite flute and string writing then this one is for you!"
