Rise of The Guardians Movie Suite

Rise of The Guardians Suite
Music by Alexandre Desplat

This recent movie suite from a 2012 animated adventure takes us on a turbulent journey into the realm of fantasy.  With only a tiny use of synthesizers to fill out the orchestra, we can hear elements from past suites by Mr. Desplat such as Harry Potter, but he continues to hone his craft to excite the listener with majestic sound. The main theme is repeated enough to connect the various cues, but so many are almost snippets that give a feeling of frequently stopping and starting. Could be a personal problem? With a timing of 23:11, you will want to make space for this in your library, to be enjoyed time after time.  -MJ
