Comments about the soundtrack for The Red Violin (John Corigliano)
Screw it! It's still technically outstanding.

Screw it! It's still technically outstanding.   Saturday, September 17, 2011 (9:49 p.m.) 

Yeah, yeah, we all know it's the concert Chaconne adapted to scenes of the movie.

Even as such, one can't deny the fact that the orchestra and Joshua Bell's performances are incredible and the resulting music is something few composers recently can churn up on a work day.

So, say what you want about the music not sounding too mainstream, it's still quality work and impossibly complicated to perform.

If only more film scores today had this level of detail and complexity.
