Overview

Thomas Newman's score for Robert Redford's The Horse Whisperer walks the perilously fine line between mystical and mawkish. There's no denying the magical, larger-than-life sweep of Newman's majestic arrangements and stately melodies, but there's also no shaking the emotional calculation at work here as well. The music doesn't merely tug the heartstrings; it yanks them. Wrought from lush synthesizers, backwoods strings, and French horn flourishes, The Horse Whisperer nevertheless boasts a surprising affinity for nuance that makes its climactic moments that much more dynamic. For all its sentimentality, this is music of uncommon beauty and artistry.

I reach for this music over and over again. Even better if you have seen this movie. This soundtrack is more than good music it creates a feeling, a mood(good one). It's a perfect accompaniment for a ride through the ranchland and hills of TX and of course looking for Robert Redford.
