Album Review

Largely overshadowed by The Shawshank Redemption, Thomas Newman's other Academy Award-nominated score from 1994, Little Women nevertheless remains one of the finest efforts of the composer's career, its unsentimental pastoral beauty vividly evoking Louisa May Alcott's indelible frontier world. Employing period instruments including piano, flute and strings, Little Women boasts a homespun charm that wonderfully complements Newman's warm, lilting melodies — perhaps the most telling tribute one can pay this music is that the original compositions fit interchangeably with the soundtrack's public domain entries from Francis Johnson, Claudio Grafulla and Conrad Kocher, capturing the sound and spirit of early Americana to perfection.

so beautiful and moving

this is so amazing and inspirational this movie and book is the best story ever. i love it so much. i'm 15 and i wish my age group could appreciate movies and books like this more.

A beautiful score

Thomas Newman's score for Little Women should be right up there with the best film scores of all time. The music is so evocative of the time period (Civil War) and of the myriad of emotions in this film. It's a beautiful, haunting score and frames the story perfectly.

Too beautiful for words

There are no words to express how beautiful and moving this soundtrack is. I usually don't like listening to plain instrumental music, but this soundtrack is like listening to a story, and the emotions evoked through this music are so pure and true to the book itself. I absolutely love it!
