Shakespeare In Love

Stephen Warbeck

John Madden’s Elizabethan comedy drama follows William Shakespeare as a new love affair inspires the creation of Romeo and Juliet, and won seven Oscars, including best soundtrack.

Stephen Warbeck’s score is as light, fleet-footed and optimistic as the movie itself. Though his orchestration is more contemporary than period-specific, it occasionally evokes the work of Elizabethan composers like William Byrd and the more baroque Henry Purcell, while the romantic themes are carried by the lute, the key stringed instrument of the era. Organized around recurring motifs - chipper and bouncy full orchestrations ("The Beginning of the Partnership"), lute-based romantic interludes ("Greenwich") and somber strings ("The Prologue") - the result is heady and spiritedly romantic.
