Da Vinci's Demons (Original Television Soundtrack)


Composer: Bear McCreary
Label: Sparks & Shadows
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 28 May 2013

Bear McCreary’s sweeping orchestral score for Da Vinci's Demons was meticulously researched to accurately represent the time period, without being bound to it. His score combines full orchestra, Renaissance instrumentation, choir and ethnic soloists with the renowned Calder Quartet and surging contemporary synthesis...

Whenever we receive a score composed by Bear McCreary a smile always comes to my face - for a I know I'm in for a quality soundtrack. As usual, like with all of his work, I spent almost a week listening to McCreary's music on this release. And every time, I found something new that I liked.

Personal favourite tracks include 'Da Vinci's Demons Main Title Theme'; 'Flight of the Columbina'; 'Story of the Shield' (which is a reworking of the main theme); 'Vlad The Third' (which reminded me of the start of John William's 'Indy's Very First Adventure' from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade; 'The Astrolabe'; and 'Da Vinci's Demons End Credits'

The album contains 26 tracks and lasts for 1 hr, 30 min, 34 sec. It's an enjoyable score and certainly one worth picking up if you're a fan of the TV series or McCreary's work.
