Sydney Pollack's 1995 remake of the classic romantic comedy Sabrina may have proven a commercial and critical failure, but John Williams' charming score boasts an intimacy and refinement that beautifully complement the film's nouveau riche ambience. Drawing upon Williams' formative experiences as a jazz pianist, Sabrina eschews the widescreen theatrics of his most famous scores in favor of tuxedo-tailed sophistication. The music is feather-light and profoundly romantic, painstakingly evoking the sound and spirit of golden-age Hollywood. Only Sting's banal performance of Williams' "Moonlight" breaks the music's spell.

Beautifully romantic and relaxing, great for a bubble bath.
Jason Ankeny got it almost right ~ along with the rest of Hollywood. I agree that the romantic musical ensemble of John Williams' work is soothing and provocative all at once. But I wholeheartedly disagree with the comment about Sting's performance on the Moonlight track ~ this was a perfect combination of ingenious classical/jazz scoring and contemporary touches (Sting's voice). Hollywood missed the boat ~ at least in this version of the story, Sabrina isn't in COOKING CLASSES and Linus isn't some old cigar-chompin' good ol' boy. It was nice to see new life breathed into what was a "dying story". This is one instance where the re-make film was far better than the original. With all due respects to Audrey Hepburn fans, Julia Ormond finally did Sabrina Fair some justice.
Along with Accidental Tourist, this is Williams' finest score (outside of the familiar space'n'action zone). A must for any score collector.
An excellent combination, ''Sabrina'' provides soft and easy listening through a combination of instumentals and singing. It's a great CD to add to your collection!
