Salmon Fishing in The Yemen by Dario Marianelli


Right next to Life of Pi, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is the other Best score of 2012.  One of my very favorite composers of the last five years has been Dario Marianelli.  He writes beautiful lyrical scores with class, elegance, and emotional depth.  Atonement and Pride & Prejudice are both excellent results of his collaboration with director Joe Wright.  This Lasse Halstrom film starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt was an unexpected surprise.  I loved both the film and the score, which evokes a bright sun and a cool breeze mixed together.  Best of 2012.
