Overall, the music is light in tone, never oppressive, which would have been an easy and obvious route for a movie about football. My favorite track is the "Main Title," which introduces the musical theme. It is hopeful, inspirational, and ultimately uplifting. Had I not first seen the movie, I could still gather this much about the film. Other tracks, such as "Waiting," "Tryouts," and "The Final Game" convey the spirited and triumphant atmosphere with a chorus of flutes whistling across strong, brassy undertones. I also liked the touch of nostalgia Goldsmith weaves in, cementing the hope and innocence of the story and era on film and CD.
The gentle theme is a great basis for the inspiring real life story of Rudy The music travels with Rudy as he tries to realize his dream and play Notre Dame football. The magic of the score is in its simplicity. The combination of flute, choral, strings and piano makes for great music that will be with you, long after you first hear it. The soundtrack is a great to listen to, as you try, and complete any task (like writing product reviews). It will make the job just fly by. The best part of the score is without a doubt the rousing cue called "The Final Game" The liner notes feature a word or two, from both the real life Ruettiger and Anspaugh, about Goldsmith's work; As well as photos from the scoring/recording sessions, and a few film pics
Under normal circumstances, my only complaint about the soundtrack might be its length, at 36:48. But the music is so good here...I can let that slide. The CD has 10 tracks and comes highly recommended.
Note: Folks who like the score to Rudy as much as I do, should also check out the film on DVD, it features an isolated music score track option. When used, you can hear the entire score, including music, not found on this CD
Goldsmith is a master of melody with shades of heartfelt feelings, not to mention he can swing the other way and give "dig your heels in" percussion, brass and power. From the opening track "MAIN TITLE", simply a sweet and beautiful theme, interwoven with musical underscoring in every cue. Many, not all scores can really get inside your head ~ "The Thorn Birds" (1983), by Henry Mancini comes to mind, he was one of the first composers to really give you melody within a score, complete and full, lots of heart and sincerity. Goldsmith proves without a doubt he's more than capable...just listen to "WAITING", slowly building with wind instruments, strings blending with tubular bells and brass answering the call..."TO NOTRE DAME", the irish will love this warm and tender almost sublime melody, the main theme once again faintly appears, you're drifting thoughts of the many students who previously occupied the halls of this great institution of education...Goldsmith's cue is arranged as a suite, combining all themes into one memorable experience.
Hats off to ~ Alexander Courage and Arthur Morton (orchestration), Robert Townson (executive album producer for Varese Sarabande), TriStar Pictures and our composer, conductor and producer...the legendary ~ JERRY GOLDSMITH!
Total Time: 36:48 on 10 Tracks ~ Varese Sarabande VSD-5446 ~ (1993)
