Ben-Hur Sound Track Now Out

Ben-Hur
First to finish. Last to die.
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music by Marco Beltrami

Sony Classical is proud to announce the release of “Ben-Hur (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)”. The remake “Ben-Hur” is the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. The score was written by Marco Beltrami.

ABOUT THE COMPOSER
Beltrami is best known for finding a unique approach to scoring in each of his films. For the film “Scream”, he threw away conventional horror music clichés and instead called upon his concert music roots to explore a new sonic landscape. For “The Homesman” Beltrami constructed his own instruments that would meld the archaic and new. The creations were as tiny as a refitted lap steel guitar to giant, cross-ranch cables that could pick up wind and translate it into a haunting glow. Subsequently, his resume has expanded to include films ranging from epic drama to dark comedy. Beltrami has been nominated twice for Academy Awards for Best Score (“3:10 to Yuma” (2007) and “The Hurt Locker” (2008)).

ABOUT THE FILM
