Editors’ Notes

Director Joe Wright gave Italian composer Dario Marianelli the not inconsiderable task of conjuring a score that evoked the various classical compositions in vogue at the time of the story's early-19th century timeframe. The range that gambit requires encompasses everything from obvious homage ("A Postcard to Henry Purcell") and period dance conceits ("Another Dance," "Meryton Townhall") to the martial music of "The Militia Marches In."

Customer Reviews

Pride & Prejudice soundtrack

To enjoy a movie soundtrack, it is often necessary to have seen the film, and have associations to go with the music. The music doesn't always stand on it's own merit. However, the Pride & Prejudice soundtrack can be enjoyed whether or not you have seen the film. The music is alternately stirring, delicate, playful, thoughtful, and really a pleasure to listen to. I find myself repeating a track over and over, because it simply isn't long enough to absorb! A great listen, if you like a classical style, with a leaning toward the romantic. (By the way, I loved to movie, too.)

Lush and romantic

Like the candlelit, sunlit richly textured look of the film, this is a score of quite remarkable beauty. Richly accented with rolling flights of piano fancy, the music for this film really grabbed my ear when I saw the film and listening to it on its own did not dissapoint. Truly a lovely soundtrack for anyone who loves the sweep and romanticism of another era.

Soulful and simple

Gorgeous score for a gorgeous film. Simple but intelligent, and hits you right in the heart and soul. This emulates the Romantic Era musically: it evokes beauty because it is beautiful, stays simple, and it escapes the usual mold that film scores typically strive for by creating a period sound. I was driving to this music this afternoon, looking out the window, it lets me relive the film, and makes every day life a painting.
