The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (2001) by Bernard Herrmann, performed by Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by Joel McNeely

Categories: 1960, 2001, and Music.

This is among the most traditional scores of Herrmann’s I’ve heard. It’s downright classical in its overture. I mean, shockingly traditional music for Herrmann. Not having seen this particular film, I don’t know how deliberate this is (I assume, because it’s Gulliver’s Travels that the music is trying to sound like 18th century music). But as a standalone score, it’s really conventional, even when it begins to resemble more of a score later on.

Don’t get me wrong, the music is fine, but it’s so conventional as to not be worth your time if you’re looking for landmark scores.

6/10
