This score is unique because of it both use eastern and western instruments.The eastern instrument,called duduk,and the Egyptian choir illustrate the sexual prowess of Cleopatra,namely,that she can temptate men with her beauty,and she does so to protect her country(sorry about being so naturalist),and the exotic Egyptian landscape.The heavy percussion,excellent brass and dissonant string section symbolizes the power and might of Rome,and also the fears of those Romans (namely, members of the Roman Senate,who disagrees with Julius Caesar' s high poitical influence,and his idea about an alliance with Egypt).To illustrate the united powers of Egypt and Rome,Trevor Jones' mixes eastern and western instruments.There are some suspenseful cues performed mainly by strings,and a beautiful love theme of Caesar and Cleopatra,which is playful,exotic and relaxing at the same time.Love theme also contains some suspenseful parts to illustrate the fears and doubts of the two lovers about the future.The album contains some superlong tacks,but even none of those,and none other tracks ever get boring.
