Buy it... if you appreciate well constructed but solemn expressions of orchestral romanticism against the backdrop of appropriately grim historical wartime restraint.

Avoid it... if you expect the performances of this score to evoke the same emotionally engaging appeal as Stephen Warbeck's Shakespeare in Love.

Warbeck
Warbeck
Charlotte Gray: (Stephen Warbeck) This adaptation of Sebastian Faulks' novel by Australian director Gillian Armstrong involves a title character whose double love interests during the height of Germany's aggression in World War II lead her into the depths of undercover danger in France. The harrowing realities of occupation and escape are balanced with the confused, but no less intense romantic involvement in the story. The grim circumstances in which she operates as a member of the French resistance leaves little hope of success by the end of the film, and this tense environment bleeds into Stephen Warbeck's properly trimmed and predictable score for Charlotte Gray. A veteran of a host of European films and television productions, Warbeck was quickly rising as a composer of fame in Western Europe and the United States. Even with his Academy Award win for Shakespeare in Love, his popularity elsewhere was finding difficulty gaining traction. For a project that was supposed to exhibit an original score that steals the heart of a film, Captain Corelli's Mandolin from earlier in 2001 turned out to receive a lower critical and popular response for Warbeck's score (and the film as a whole) than many had expected. Nevertheless, Warbeck's strong employment of a historically appropriate classical style of composition for considerable orchestral ensembles continued to hold the curiosity of those who were introduced to his energetic work for Shakespeare in Love and wanted to hear more of the same exuberant romanticism. Ironically, while that 1998 Oscar-winner had set a template by which American listeners might have wanted to hear more, Warbeck's best known scores since that entry hadn't allowed him to explore that same flighty line of writing.
