Only one Thing Missing
The capture of the moments that define the movie, whether it was a conversation, a lashing wind, or sailors lamenting their place on the opposite end of the Earth from their homes, the soundtrack could almost tell the tale of Capt. Aubrey and the Surprise all by itself. Rather than over-dramatic swashbuckling dance-alongs, the music here is well-thought out, able to convey a range of emotions with a single note, and then the exact opposite emotions within a second. There is one problem with the soundtrack, hence the loss of a star. The music I loved the most was that played by Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany, by themselves in the Captain's quarters. The score is included, but the truly amazing, and surpising music made between these two made the film for me, and I can only wish it had been included. For all the composing of a range of great musical talent, it was two actors who used their music to tell the tales of lonliness, terrible enemies, fear, and great storms.
The song at the end of Master and Commander
Quintetto Boccherini is the composer of the song at the end of Master and Commander that Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany play. The good part of the song is about 2 minutes long and I'm told it is in the middle of Song 14. Unfortunately iTunes (And Amazon) do not allow single track DLs from this album. This song is available (as a single track) on other albums however here on iTunes: Song Name: Quintettino per archi, Op. 30, No. 6 "La Musica Notturna di Madrid": III.
