Title - 'Flesh and Bone'
Artist - Dave Porter
After a long career as an acclaimed dancer, Paul Grayson founded the American Ballet Company, and he's determined to make it rank among the world's best artistic institutions. The key, he believes, is Claire Robbins, a transcendent ballerina, capable of reaching the sublime, but her inner torment and aspirations drive her in compelling, unforeseeable ways, especially when confronted with Paul's ping-pong fits of ebullience and rage.
ABC's mercurial leader requires his dancers' abject devotion ... to an extremely unhealthy degree. Infused by New York's inherent drama, "Flesh and Bone" is a gritty, complex series that steadfastly explores the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world whose score was composed by David Porter (Breaking Bad, The Blacklist and Better Call Saul). [The show is currently in its first season on Starz.]
I'll be very honest here, if you're looking for any of the beautiful scores heard for the final ballet in Scorched Earth episode, you will find none of that music on this disc, sorry! Clearly the most beautiful music for the last 20 minutes of the show, and not even a single piece of it is on this CD. Highly disappointed is an understatement, but what we are left with are 27 cuts that although give a highly detailed musical outlay of the TV show, are sorely missing those aforementioned missing moments.
Apparently, Varese Sarabande is only releasing Adam Crystal's original score for the ballet itself thru iTunes! I don't know why, save for them making more money double-dipping on our pockets, but if you love this TV show, and love Dave Porter's work also, then you will obviously have to go to iTunes next to purchase this secondary, and yet truly amazing other piece of work.
