Album Notes

Audio Mixer: Dennis Sands.

Editor: Jeff Carson .

The 2015 biopic The Walk, about the high-wire artist Philippe Petite, marks the 15th collaboration between director Robert Zemeckis and film composer Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, The Polar Express). Sometimes low-key and tender ("Two Loves") or jazzy ("Spy Work"), the score also soars at times to reinforce the visual power of the film, which was released in theaters in multiple formats including IMAX 3D. The tense, thrilling "We Have a Problem," for instance, uses pounding tympani and other percussion, striding brass, and shuddering strings to dynamic effect. The diverse score also offers "Young Philippe," with Parisian accordion and circus-like fare, while "I Feel Thankful" quotes Beethoven's "Für Elise" before morphing into a whimsical, comic book action hero-type piece. While stylistically fickle, it will likely appeal to viewers of the film and collectors of the composer, himself a career-long musical acrobat -- so to speak. ~ Marcy Donelson
