The King's Speech: Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack

Books | Piano

Publisher: Wise Publications
Format: Sheet Music | Songbook

The King's Speech, starring Colin Firth, has won both public and critical acclaim for its enchanting story of an unlikely King's ascension to the throne, and the unorthodox speech therapist who helped the King find his voice. Alexandre Desplat's soundtrack perfectly complements the events portrayed in the film and the emotional journey of George VI, going so far as to use the original Royal microphones in the orchestral recording. Capturing both the resplendent grandeur of the King's royal duties, and the somber mood that featured both in his struggle with a speech impediment and the looming threat of war.

This album features all fourteen songs from the film soundtrack, including the emotionally complex theme which mixes a light-hearted feel with an equally tangible sense of melancholy. Also featuring arrangements of classics from Mozart and Beethoven, this collection is perfect not only for fans of the film, but also for those who simply love great music.

        Excellent score - about a grade 4/5. Well worth it if you love the music from the film.

        A wonderful selection of piano solos from the award winning film, this book would be suitable for pianists from early intermediate level onwards, some pieces being rather more challenging. Very enjoyable music to play and to listen to.

        Lovely arrangements - more demanding than intermediate standard, but challenging in a good way!
