The glorious world of Jane Austen was at last brought back to the big screen in all its romance, wit, and emotional force in 2005's Pride & Prejudice. Directed by Joe Wright, the classic tale of love and misunderstanding unfolds in class-conscious England near the close of the 18th century. The Academy Award-nominated soundtrack features an original score by Italian-born composer Dario Marianelli (The Brothers Grimm, Atonement) with performances by Decca artist and French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet.

The hauntingly beautiful and mesmerizing soundtrack exudes a feeling of empowering romanticism coupled with great emotional suspense builders. Music is an integral part of the film, with the main piano theme used as both background music and as source music when one of the characters plays the instrument on-screen. "Darcy's Letter" and "Leaving Netherfield" put forth a somber feeling, while "Meryton Townhall" is an uplifting jig providing a sense of whimsy present in the personalities of the film's younger characters.

Weaving piano melodies into the sweeping score enhances the beautiful cinematography and sweep of the love stories. In addition to the piano theme, Marianelli has also reworked the popular Rondeau from Purcell's Abdelazer to depict the dance scenes, and the overall effect fully complements the touching on-screen action.
