Marc Timón Barceló
COLISEUM (Original Soundtrack Recording)
Jerry Goldsmith Award winner Marc Timón Barceló, who previously had his score for The Little Wizard released by MovieScore Media, resurrects the spirit of Hollywood Golden Age legends such as Miklós Rózsa, Alex North and Alfred Newman with this stunningly colorful, large canvas orchestral/choral score for the live show event Coliseum: Games of Rome, which premiered in Barcelona in early October. Orchestrated and conducted by the composer, this soundtrack will blow fans of epic adventure music away – its thematic richness (including rousing, brassy Roman fanfares, heroic scherzos and a sweeping theme for Cleopatra), its sheer emotional qualities and the extremely well executed composition, orchestration and recording makes this one of MovieScore Media’s most exceptional albums in recent time. We do not often release albums which are not presenting actual film scores, but sometimes rules are there to be broken and in here – as was also the case with Andrew Pearce’s concert work Cinema Symphony – we had every reason to do it!
