Agony & The Ecstasy Soundtrack Product Description



Agony & The Ecstasy Soundtrack was released Sep 01, 1998 on the Varese Sarabande label. Alex North's best-known period-setting film score is the music he wrote for Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus -- understandable since that movie was a monster hit -- but his music for Carol Reed's The Agony and the Ecstasy may be his finest body of music for a period subject. North worked within the historical framework of the film's story -- the battle of wills between Michelangelo Buonarroti and Pope Julius II -- composing music that subsumed the musical influences of 15th century Italy within his own style. Agony & The Ecstasy Soundtrack contains a single disc with 12 songs.   ...See Full Description

Michelangelo in Music
Alex North's "Agony and the Ecstasy" contains cues that mesh well with the film and the film's emotional tone. Much of the music is in a square meter, so it sounds more or less like processional music, but within this basic framework North created a powerful and uplifting score. The opening cue accompanies the main title and upon listening to it without the movie, certainly still evokes the massiveness of Michelangelo's favorite mountains of Carrara marble. This cue is the most grand, but "Blind" and "Painting" also capture the expansiveness of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling. I think the film was great and the music is appropriate and at times inspiring.
