By all means,East West is a symphonic score with no muted and distorted instruments,no extreme synth effects - it strenght lies in the excellent orcestral solutions that are made by the extremely talented composer called Patrick Doyle.There are many orchestral solutions.The use of piano,strings and brasses at the same time to illustrate when the lovers (a physician and a French actress) try to escape from the power of the mad dictator Stalin (who use the father,who is the physician,and took them as captives,for his purposes and to help him at his desired war).The chase music is intensive,exciting,moving and colourful to illustrate when the lovers are chased by the KGB.Soft and gentle brasses and strings made tracks emotional in tracks accompaning scenes where the physical and mental hardships that are suffered by them are shown.Being a film concentrate to Russia and to Slavs,there are some Russian and Slavic folk music which features the throaty voices of the Ukranian Army Choir and the excellent symphonic music by Doyle.There are also tracks which are full of tension.These are haunting,elementary sad,dramatic and ominous at the same time to illustrate the dangers that are lurking near and the uneasiness and fears that are felt by the chased lovers.All in all,a sure buy.You can rarely hear such excellent symphonic music.
