Lilting Melodies

Emma CD coverDoes the constant noise of modern life rumple your spirits? Let Emma: Music from the Miramax Motion Picture transport you to a quieter time. This 1996 Academy Award winner for Best Musical or Comedy Score lightly trips along with soft, delicate melodies and the occasional touch of drama. Whimsical string arrangements and romantic woodwind solos dance airily, providing the perfect background for moments of relaxation and daydreams. With this recording, composer Rachel Portman became one of only three women to win a Scoring Oscar, triumphing over frequent nominees Alan Menken, Randy Newman, and Hans Zimmer. Jane Austen would certainly approve.
