    Bravo For Casanova

    This soundtrack is great. It is composed of all Baroque music from the 1700's donce by the famous Vivaldi, Rameau, and more. It features Baroque instruements, and is a great addition to the movie. If you're looking for a modern sounding soundtrack, this isn't it. When listening to this soundtrack I feel I'm bvack in the 1700's in Venice or somewhere. It's a great soundtrack and is worth your money. Standout Tracks: (Track 1 and 25.) An Untold Story: This opens and closes the movie. It's a nice guitar song. I like how all the instruments come in at the very end. (Track 2.) The Legend of Casanova: A uptempo song. I love hearing the harpsichord clinking away and keeping the beat. (Track 4). Eternal Damnation: A rather dark Baroque piece of music. It's an uptempo song. I love the string arrangement here especially in the cello's and bases. (Track 6.) A Venetian Virgin: This piece is not written by a Barouqe composer but rather by Alexandre Desplat. He wrote this track and 15. I like the comedic layout of this song with the harpsichord. (Track 8.) A Lover's Duel: When I think of Baroque music, this is what I imagine it sounded like. This is another great uptempo song, similiar to track 4 "Eternal Damnation" (Track 9 and 11:) These two tracks are the same song from Concerto A 5, Op.9 No.4 In A Minor. In track 9 the theme doesn't appear until the very end, and continues into track 11. I think this has a very eerie sound to it. (Track 14.) Papprizio's Arrival: Similiar to track 2. (Track 16 and 21.)This track is interesting because instead of hearing this song in a minor key, we hear it in a major key. This song is from the same Concerto as tracks 9 and 11. (Track 23.) The Hanging: A rather sad part of the movie as well as the song. (Track 24.) The Escape: Another uptempo Baroque song. The string arrangement here again is great. You can hear a soprano singer in the background in the beginning of the piece.
