Snow White and the Huntsman Movie Suite

Snow White and the Huntsman Movie Suite
Music by James Newton Howard

In this new movie suite from the recent 2012 motion picture release, Mr. Howard has given us a much needed discourse on the latest way to compose for a semi-scary version of the children's much loved fable of Snow White. Taken as a movie suite, this music resembles a tone poem. The opening French horn cascades through an orchestra into a single piano before the strings warp the orchestra into full speed. There is the intro, the escape, the hunted, the magical interlude, the tides of war and the conclusion neatly wrapped up in a bow. Those are my interpretations. I cannot say much about the picture, but this movie suite is an excellent way to spend one's listening. With a timing of 26:31, I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. -MJ
