Product Description Product Description
The beautiful and moving score for John Adams is by composers Rob Lane and Joseph Vitarelli. The score is an exceptional and poignant work. John Adams is a seven-part epic miniseries event that explores American history through the eyes of one of the greatest of the founding fathers, John Adams (Giamatti), a fiercely independent spirit whose unwavering vision steered America through a tumultuous period. Based on David McCullough's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, the miniseries is produced for HBO Films by Playtone. John Adams taps into the uncertainty and intensity surrounding the birth of the American republic and its first 50 years. Directed by Emmyr-winner Tom Hooper.

one for the textbooksRob Lane and Joseph Vitarelli have not only written a reflective and shimmering work of music. They have provided a textbook example of how to write film music.The thirty tracks of this HBO Series soundtrack strike notes that are alternately noble, daring, pensive, and troubled. All of it is stirring in the way that one's soul is moved in proximity to great literature or the finest musical art. Yet, as is the nature of the case with a genre of music meant to frame a visual depiction rather than to publish its own grandeur, most viewers of JOHN ADAMS will fail to realize the degree to which the series' success has depended upon Lane's and Vitarelli's work in the shadows.The Hollywood Studio Symphony performs its 20th/21st century score with the panache of a great ensemble. The score references rather than revolves around period sounds from the American Revolution. Its gestures are knowing, sophisticated and nuanced. They successfully anchor the sound of this film series at a point more than two centuries ago, then develop it according to the aural canons of our own day.The result is not less than stunning. The score never turns mawkish, yet connects with the deepest emotions. I hope the next generation of film music writers learn their craft by listening over and over, as I will, to Lane's and Vitarelli's JOHN ADAMS.5Outstanding Mini-Series"John Adams" is an outstanding series. The acting is superb and the dialogue equally compelling. Every person who lives in the United States ought to watch this. It is reminder of what being an American truly meant. The series is stimulating, entertaining and inspiring. I rented the series first and I felt compelled to purchase it. Produced by Tom Hanks,"John Adams" is an extraordinary production!5Fine reflection of an ageWhile browsing a mass merchant's video department one day, I saw two Goths who were studying the JOHN ADAMS DVD set with rapt attention. With their shoe-polish black hair, facial piercing,enormous key rings and nail-head boots, it was an unlikely scenario, and even more surprising when the taller kid said, "Did you ever see this, dude?" then paused. "It was, like, one of the only times in my life I really GOT what this America thing is all about."Well, three cheers for that -- not only for the film to which he referred, but to the soundtrack which heightened the drama.Not since James Horners' epic score for GLORY have I enjoyed the score of an historical film as much as this. Like Horner,Rob Lane and Joseph Vitarelli draw on the period themes and harmonies of a revolutionary age to build their musical backdrop to this much-admired mini-series. Here, though, the composers infuse their work with a more expansive variety of melodies and little sentimentality. With its imaginative, heroic orchestration, the score for JOHN ADAMS -- clocking in at over 70 minutes -- is richly satisfying. I've played it more than ten times since receiving it and still haven't tired of it.The agitated fiddle dirge that forms the counterpoint for the main title is, perhaps, the most stirring, distinctly American title score I've heard since "Ashokan Farewell" in Ken Burns' THE CIVIL WAR. Reflecting the revolutionary fervor which inspired it so accurately, the piece rises in intensity until the listener's goosebumps compete with memories of Playtone's memorable production. It's rare to encounter such a varied and artful score on television -- although HBO had already broke the mold with Thomas Newman's score for ANGELS IN AMERICA.One possible reason the music is so engaging is that it is as episodic as the film itself. For these two composers, it would not have been enough to simply recapitulate the principal theme. Instead, there are freestanding compositions for individual characters, for land battles, naval incursions, births, deaths, the narration of of Abigail's and John's letters -- and the historic pinnacles of the Revolution. Given the wide sound-stage of the recording and and competence of The Hollywood Studio Orchestra, the soundtrack is burnished American music of the highest order. The composers have infused their work with the raw emotion of the time and the hopes of five three generations of a family.While such a frankly patriotic score beongs to a time other than our own, it reminds one of two founders' hopes and dreams and reminds us America is more than the sum of its parts. The fact that this project reached fruition during one of the two most politically oppressive periods of the past 100 years, this moving and intelligent work is worth its weight in gold.Five stars.5great listening more than onceThis soundtrack is one that I can listen to more than once and enjoy every time. While not a musician, I find myself fascinated by the various motifs that are introduced and then reoccur from time to time. I also enjoy picking out the different instruments and melodies they play as the soundtrack progresses. I would to know how the two composers decided to divide the different scores because to my ear they mesh together very well. One might complain that the music lacks the technical expertise of Mozart, but who cares. At times the music is energetic and marshal and then very soulful and plaintive matching the episodes of the miniseries. Well worth the cost in my opinion .5Inspiring, Pensive. Melancholy. Superb.The John Adams soundtrack is, in many ways as mercurial as the moods of the man portrayed in the HBO series. The tracks include inspirational, quick paced pieces leaving the listener determined. Many others offer a mix of variations on classical works (Schubert, Piano Trio in E-Flat), to slow-paced, quiet, meditative pieces for thoughtful contemplation or as background to a good book or a lazy afternoon. Lane and Vitarelli have put together an original score, and the Hollywood Studio Symphony's execution does it considerable justice. While not getting what I expected, I was nevertheless enthralled and pleased with the surprises. You will be too.5Well done.....a wonderful addition to our library.......We started watching the series on TV, and, even though we actually purchase very few movies, we decided it was something we wanted to add to our movie library. The depiction is very well done. My husband is truly a history buff, and he describes the series as well done, also, which is truly high praise. We definitely give this 5 stars. In light of the political upheaval in our country today, and undeniable threats to our freedom, it has become even more important to share this historical information with our six grandchildren so they have a better understanding of how this great nation became great, how our freedom was won, the intricacies and difficulties of creating a new nation, and the sacrifices that were made by so many.5Great series, warts and allI started watching the DVD version and was so drawn in by the detailed movie sets, detail and acting that I bought the Blu-ray version. Perhaps a bit more detail than I was going for with teeth made up to be cavity-riddled and nasty, but that's just the visuals. All in all, great filming.I also upgraded because I had a hard time understanding the dialog. Blu ray was no improvement. Thank-goodness for sub-titles or I would have been clueless in some scenes.I cannot testify to how historically accurate the series might be - I only know enough of JA to be dangerous because I did not know the man's history, being far more familiar with Jefferson. President Washington treated his VP with contempt as did the senate. Adam's election to president by default was a low point: You won, you loser! I wasn't aware of that and if true, enlightening. The role of Thomas Jefferson was terrific, fairly close to what I've studied. Their sparring was educational, defining them as admiring ideological adversaries.It appears there was an unexplained gap in time: Abby Adams departed the Whitehouse, then later JA mourned her death. It seemed I missed an episode or it was deleted.Perhaps a bit off topic but the depiction of crude lifetyles and poor health of early American 'elite' is an excellent lesson for those who whine about today's amenities that are not fast enough, good enough, too fattening, too expensive or immoral. In JA's time, plentiful food, indoor plumbing, toilets, health and dental care or a simple pleasure like chocolate were unobtanium: Eyeglasses were coming available, ink and paper were plentiful as were turnips and manure. Lots and lots of manure.A great lesson of where we came and how we got here.5John Adams Soundtrack - Music that will move youMy wife and I rented John Adams through Netflix, after we had watched all the episodes we kept thinking about the great music. So, off to Amazon to find the soundtrack! The theme song alone is worth buying the soundtrack, but the rest of it is just as compelling. Absolutely perfectly matched to the movie, this soundtrack has been spending a lot of time in our CD player. We enjoyed the movie series so much, we decided to buy it for our collection. We don't buy many movies - much of them really aren't worth watching more than once, but this one was different. Paul Giamatti played the part so well, we can't think of another actor we've enjoyed so much in a long time. The rest of the cast is superb; David Morse as George Washington is brilliantly played, the first time he appears in the movie you think you're seeing the real Washington. He resembles every painting or photo you have seen of our first president. When you go back and listen to the music by itself, and remember the parts of the movie (the disc identifies each scene) - you realize how perfectly matched each piece was.The one major disappointment for us is the disc does not include the ending theme, which is an extended version of the main theme - and kind of leaves us wanting more. The disc plays everything in the movie from start to finish...well almost... as the actual ending music isn't there. Not sure what the producers of the disc were thinking - why not finish it???Still, this disc earns five stars.5Music for John Adams - the Movie - Stands on It's Own and MoreThis sound track the work of composers Rob Lane and Joseph Vitarelli really evoke the emotions of the era and the people in their works.Their work complements the efforts of David McCullough through his book and the people in the production of the movie, the actors, the cinematographers and all the others including Tom Hanks and the others in making of this series for which the soundtrack was created. John Adams (HBO Miniseries)The music truly honors and complements the Founding Fathers, Founding Mothers and Founding Children for the sacrifices they made. Not only does the music accomplish these things, but it truly stands on its own.5CD SoundtrackI watches the TV series "John Adams" via Netflix DVD and found myself spellbound by the music. I had to get the soundtrack. I'm glad I did! I love all the tracks - not typical with all music CD's. But this one...all the tracks are great!4
