Fearless...music from the original soundtrack...music by Maurice Jarre



The soundtrack to the Peter Weir movie, Fearless, has every piece of music on it that made the movie so good. Even better, these are the full versions, not the edited versions used in the film. The music fits perfectly and is a credit to the composer and editors. The way they kept only the music and no dialogue during the unbelievable plane sequences at the end made more of an impact than if we had heard the actual sounds in the plane. Most notable is the 3rd Symphony, which just makes your heart cry.

It's also a very relaxing soundtrack to listen to on its own with Maurice Jarre at his very absolute best. So, if you liked the movie, and thought the music helped the atmosphere, then this is worth adding to your collection.
