2 New 2021 Recommendations   Sunday, November 7, 2021 (1:32 p.m.) 

I listened today to "The Electrical Life of Louis Wain" by Arthur Sharpe and "Napoleon-In The Name Of Art" by Remo Anzovino and these 2 scores surprised me a lot.
Both are very melodic, extra emotional in parts, with some particularly memorable cues and a kind of thematic material that is not heard much nowadays with some notes and harmonies wink
It is highly recommended to give both scores a try, Really beautiful stuff.

P.S.
I catched Craig Armstrong' "The Most Reluctant Convert" also and it was....very nice *** stars rating on first listen with 2 particular strong cues, but not on the level of the composr'best.

I just listened to "Napoleon - In the Name of Art" yesterday and really, really enjoyed it. I'll check out the other one you mention.

Yeah that was sadly a HUGE disappointment for me. I love love love Armstrong and listen to his music (scores and elsewise) all the time, but…yeah, this one just felt really insubstantial. Pleasant to listen to and some good cues but I was kinda bummed when it was done. Too high of expectations perhaps.

I’m sorry to say that I found both scores emotionally inert. The Sharpe score, while probably functional in context, really tested my patience. Any modern score that prominently features a theremin is usually an automatic skip for me.

^Agreed.
