W.E. Music From The Motion Picture

‘W.E. Music From The Motion Picture’ Composed by Abel Korzeniowski to be Released Digitally on Interscope Records Jan. 31st

Soundtrack Includes Golden Globe Award Winning Madonna Song “Masterpiece”
 

NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The Golden Globe nominated music from Madonna’s upcoming film W.E. composed, orchestrated and produced by Abel Korzeniowski , which also includes Madonna’s Golden Globe award winning song “Masterpiece”, is scheduled to be released digitally on Interscope Records on January 31st, it was announced today. W.E. which was directed, co-written and produced by Madonna and distributed by The Weinstein Company is scheduled to be released in February.

The score was recorded in April 2011 at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London with a 60-piece orchestra conducted by Terry Davies including piano, violin and viola solos.

The Polish born Los Angeles based Korzeniowski previously wrote the original score for the Tom Ford film A Single Man for which he also received a Golden Globe nomination.
 

The prevailing sense of obsession was what inspired me in W.E.—the irrational compulsion to sacrifice everything and anything for love—a love that could easily be just an illusion. In my music, I wanted to reflect those powerful and conflicting emotions through a web of melodic themes, which relentlessly repeat and constantly swing between despair and sorrow, and hope and joy.

commented Korzeniowski.
 

“W.E.” tells the story of American divorcee Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and England’s King Edward (James D’Arcy) who abdicated his thrown to be with the woman he loved. It is considered one of the greatest love stories of the 20th century. The story is told through the eyes of a modern day New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Abby Cornish). Composer Korzeniowski masterfully and seamlessly bridged the two unique worlds of Europe in the 30’s and 40’s and the contemporary Manhattan environment of a woman lost in her dreams of the perfect love.

In addition to Korzeniowski’s magnificent score, the soundtrack includes the original song “Masterpiece” composed by Madonna, Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry and sung by Madonna which is played during the end credits of the film. It will also be included on Madonna’s upcoming solo album for Interscope, MDNA, which is scheduled for release this spring.

  4. niewiarygodne jak muzyka ta uwodzi, jak dogłębnie przenika ciało i umysł, w żadnym z języków nie znajdę tak wyszukanych słów, które mogłyby sprostać tym dźwiękom czy dać wyraz uczuciom, jakie muzyka ta wyzwala…

  12. Please tell me the title of the song (near the beginning of the movie “W.E.”) where the Duke and Duchess met for the first time and danced to this lovely and old musical arrangement.

    It was not mentioned in the Soundtrack credits and it’s driving me crazy because I can’t think of the title.

    Thank you for any help in recapturing my memory.
