OST : Girl with a Pearl Earring (by Alexandre Desplat, 2003)


This is one of my favourite soundtracks from this decade. Actually, first I heard the soundtrack and after a time I watched the movie. If you have not seen it, doesn't matter, it's forgettable and unnecessary, because the music is so oneiric... Sometimes it can be sweet and lovely, and sometimes it can be dark and eery. Composed by Alexandre Desplat, it has a lot of similarity with the Philip Glass' scores. Mysteriously beautiful and touchingly intriguing, it is an awesome score I highly recommend.

Tracklist:

1. Girl With a Pearl Earring (Main Theme)
2. Griet's Theme
3. A New Life
4. The Master's House
5. Camera Obscura
6. The Birth Feast
7. Cornelia
8. Vermeer's Studio
9. Winter Nights
10. Van Ruijven
11. Home
12. Colours In The Clouds
13. The Master Is Painting
14. By The Canal With Pieter
15. Catharina's Pearls
16. Colours In The Clouds (Strings)
17. Girl With a Pearl Earring (Reprise)
18. Silence and Light (Piano Solo)
19. Griet's Theme (Reprise)
20. Griet Remembers

Forget about the movie, just listen to the music!

I just discovered your blog via Wierdomusic's link.
I have downloaded "Girl with a Pearl Earring" and it may be the score that finally sells me on Alexandre Desplat - some of whose music I have heard without becoming very interested.
Thank you.
