Product Description

Music Composed and Conducted by ALEXANDRE DESPLAT Featuring World-Renowned Piano Virtuoso LANG LANG "Prodigiously gifted" (Gramophone) pianist Lang Lang is featured in Golden Globe nominee (Girl With A Pearl Earring) Alexandre Desplat''s evocative score for the new film version of W. Somerset Maugham''s celebrated novel, The Painted Veil. A turbulent romantic drama set in the 1920s, THE PAINTED VEIL, directed by John Curran and Caroline Link, follows a young English couple, a conservative doctor (Edward Norton) and a restless society girl (Naomi Watts), who marry hastily, relocate to Shanghai where they betray each other, and find an unexpected chance at redemption and happiness while on a deadly journey into the heart of ancient China.

The Deutsche Grammophon soundtrack will be released on January 9 and features music composed and conducted by Alexandre Desplat, the Prague Symphony Orchestra as well as solos by world-renowned pianist, Lang Lang. Lang Lang''s solo album, DRAGON SONGS (CD+DVD) will also be released on January 9; the DRAGON SONGS full length DVD will be released on February 13.

Amazon.com

While this soundtrack is very solid overall, it''s also rather subdued and perhaps not as immediately likable as composer Alexandre Desplat''s previous offerings (most notably The Queen and Syriana), so it could disappoint fans of the immensely gifted Frenchman. But a certain old-fashioned charm does operate after a while, which, after all, is exactly what you''d expect of the music for a movie based on a Somerset Maugham novel. Desplat set out to evoke 1920s romanticism with a series of brief vignettes, usually greatly enhanced by the sensitive playing of pianist Lang Lang. And considering that most of the movie takes place in China, Desplat has refrained from easy orientalism: "Walter''s Mission" is one of the few tracks to allude to Asian sounds. The only non-original tracks on the CD is Erik Satie''s well-known "Gnossienne No. 1," a slow piece that evidently served as inspiration for Desplat''s own "River Waltz." But who''s complaining? There are worse people to emulate than Satie. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

If Deutsche-Grammophon deems music worth recording, you know it is going to be good, and this CD does not disappoint. The Alexandre Desplat score for this beautiful 2006 film, adapted from the 1925 novel by Somerset Maugham and a re-make of the 1934 version starring Greta Garbo, is sweeping in grandeur with quiet and intimate moments. The celebrated Chinese pianist, Lang-Lang is the soloist for the Satie Gymnopoedie, which are lovely. The music is a haunting as the story itself. If you liked the film, having the score to listen to now and then brings back the excellence of this entire project.

I bought this CD because I wanted to collect some of Alexandre Desplat sound track music & I like what I heard on the Amazon "Listen to" section. I never saw any of the films with his music but an inward musical trip to China sounded nice. I first put the CD in the stereo & then went outside to do some gardening. From the outside I heard at times some Phillip Glass like rhythms & scales. I thought "Oh No, another follower of..." but after playing the CD 3 times the music is far superior than anything that Phillip Glass has written in years. The most Phillip Glass like song is #16 Cholera, while some other songs have only the rhythm effect. The highlights of the CD are the emotional & clean piano playing of Lang Lang who is one of the hottest Classical musicians today. There is also an interesting Electric Cello player named Vincent Segal who at times sounds like he a playing a Theremin, which was a 1920ish electromagnetic field generator that can be heard in 1950ish science fiction movies. The sound production is great & is produced by Deutsche Grammophon who used to make fantastic Classical 33-1/3 LP''s. The CD tells a very good story & holds its themes well with a somewhat Erik Satie charm. Why, there is even an Eric Satie Gnossienne on track 2...what do you know. Enjoy

I loved this movie...the early scenes set in the 1920''s were so intriguing and well done. Music was divine, acting by Naomi Watts , Edward Norton, and Liev Schreiber was superb...beautiful scenery, music, and romantic story- an absolute favorite of mine and I''ve re watched many times. Read the book years ago, and re read it after seeing this production...the movie is better than the book. Very romantic, but disturbing scenes of the cholera epidemic. Would not recommend for children.

Many readers have commented on the omission of the children''s chanson, "Jamais, je ne t''oublierai," sung at the end of the film (I would imagine that the omission had something to do with copyright.). Although I was as disappointed as other reviewers, the CD compensates for this lack with other delights, including Lang Lang''s lilting interpretation of Satie''s "Gnossienne #1" and Mr. Desplat''s haunting "River Waltz" which not only complements Satie''s composition but also evokes the ephemeral mood of this memorable film so beautifully.

Well worth having in one''s CD library.

Sumptuous and moody, the soundtrack to the movie, The Painted Veil, is one that I have enjoyed listening to over and over again. Having read the original novel by Somerset Maugham, a stark yet moving tale of a young woman''s re-evaluation of her life and values, the movie was a slightly more romaniticized version of the novel. Nonetheless, the vivid, languid photography and the powerful story of the two main characters, played convincingly by Edward Norton and Naomi Watts, hooked me. Part of this was due to Alexandre Desplat''s moving, atmospheric music--both urgent and searching. Thus, I happily purchased the soundtrack after seeing the film. I wanted to save, for myself, some of the powerful residue of the film and story, and the CD has succeeded in doing so.

Beautiful collection of melodies and very well played too. The satie track is slightly too staccato for my taste but never really irritating. A must-buy for anyone who has seen this film, which is also excellent. Only four stars because the recording level is so low. Rip it off to MP3 and you''ll have trouble hearing it. I have some upscaling software which has solved this problem for me but most people won''t know what that is or how to use it so beware.
