Title - 'Loveless' (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Artist - Evgueni Galperine and Sacha Galperine
'Loveless' is this year’s winner of the prestigious 2017 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize.
From Oscar nominated director Andrey Zvyaginstev, the story follows a married couple in the midst of obtaining a divorce when their 12-year-old son vanishes. After appeals to the police to help find the boy go nowhere, the couple find volunteers for a search and rescue.
The intensity of the drama is captured perfectly in the prepared piano-based score by up and coming composers, Evgueni Galperine and Sacha Galperine.
Now Varese Sarabande have released this intrepid, cautiously dynamic soundtrack (November 10th, 2017), and although it only features just nine tracks, once heard, this soundtrack score will stay with you for a long time; trust me.
1. 'Drops and Iron Nails' (2:21)
2. '11 Cycles of E' (6:04)
3. 'Trouble' (2:40)
4. 'The Search' (1:48)
5. 'Snowstorm' (4:02)
6. 'The Cry' (1:58)
7. 'Alyosha' (3:29)
8. 'The Song' (3:45)
9. 'The Toy Train' (3:39)
We begin with the exact sounds you would expect to hear from sturdy musical droplets via the stirring, haunting 'Drops and Iron Nails', before the building single key piano work of '11 Cycles of E' comes to the fore. The longest track on the score at nearly seven minutes, it is also one of my own personal favorites.
Next comes the steel-eyed reach of 'Trouble', the purposely cold and mournful violin work of 'The Search' - the shortest track at just under two minutes - and then the magnificent building euphoria of 'Snowstorm'.
The poignant piano work coupled with the dull plucking of violin stings of 'The Cry' is next, with the searching 'Alyosha' following. The score then rounds out with the classically beautiful, heartwarming even 'The Song', before warmer piano work welcomes us into the cinematic memory that is 'The Toy Train.'
