Bruc (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)


Composer: Xavier Capellas
Moviescore Media
RRP: £13.99
Available 07 December 2010

Spanish composer Xavier Capellas's score for Bruc is a large, epic score which combines the forces of a large orchestra and choir with ethnic instrumentation (duduk, bouzouki) and ethereal solo voice. Bruc takes place in the early 19th century and tells the story of the manhunt for the hero who single-handedly put a stop to Napoleon's victorious march across Europe...

The soundtrack to Bruc is a mixed bag of styles and themes, ranging from the conventional classically scored tracks (such as 'A Defeated Empire' and 'Building a Dream') to the more modern, haunting offerings (as heard in 'Enter the Dark' and 'Where is He').

There seemed to be a slight flavour of Hans Zimmer's score for Gladiator peppered around this album, most notably in tracks like 'A Defeated Empire', 'Secret Memories' and 'Birth of a Legend'.

Overall I enjoyed this album, which is littered with interesting beats and themes.
