Original score from the 2005 drama feature film directed by Arthur Allan Seidelman, starring Elizabeth Banks, Maria Bello and Erika Christensen.
THE STORY: Based on Anton Chekov’s “The Three Sisters” about siblings living in a college town who struggle with the death of their father and try to reconcile relationships in their own lives.
THE SCORE: With the sensitive and emotional orchestral score for Arthur Allan Seidelman’s ensemble piece The Sisters, composer Thomas Morse emerges as a new major film scoring talent. The music for this film, which was inspired by Anton Chekhov’s famous novel The Three Sisters and stars Erika Christensen, Maria Bello, Mary Stuart Masterson, Chris O’Donnell, Eric McCormack and Rip Torn, shows that there is still room for such novel things as melody and confident thematic writing in modern cinema!
THE COMPOSER: Composer Thomas Morse, whose previous credits include The Big Brass Ring (based on Orson Welles’ last script and starring William Hurt), the thriller Michael Angel (starring Dennis Hopper) and Jerry Bruckheimer’s TV series The Amazing Race, has crafted a very emotional and sophisticated score for The Sisters. Recorded with a first-rate orchestra in Seattle, Morse’s music is built around strong thematic material and well-tempered orchestrations focusing on strings, piano and woodwinds. “Thomas’ work is always true to the artistic intentions of the film, yet entrancing on a purely aural level,” comments director Arthur Allan Seidelman.
