Overview

Oscar-winning composer Dario Marianelli is no stranger to English drama, as evidenced by his work on such anglophile fare as Atonement (2007) and Pride and Prejudice (2005). His rich, classically structured, emotive style lends itself completely to the genre, which makes his involvement with director Cary Fukunaga's 2011 take on Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre a real no-brainer. Marianelli teamed up with French classical pianist Jean Yves-Thibaudet for Atonement, a move mirrored this time around with his pairing with gifted British violinist Jack Liebeck. The music is appropriately dark and stormy, with long, drawn-out melodies that echo the foggy moors and wet dirt roads of the English countryside. Marianelli and Liebeck dutifully capture the Gothic undertones of Bronte's influential novel while maintaining a sense of the bittersweet sentimentality that drives the mismatched lovers to such lengths, resulting in the perfect soundtrack for the cold, gray rains of March.
