TREVOR MORRIS - the borgias (2011) (cd)

Original Television Soundtrack


Music Composed by
(The Tudors)

Oscar®-winning actor Jeremy Irons stars in the epic drama series as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of the Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power in Renaissance-era Italy. The series is created and executive produced by Oscar®-winning director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game), who is directing the first two episodes.

THE BORGIAS is a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as Rodrigo schemes his way into the position of Pope, causing him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.

Composer Trevor Morris, fresh from four seasons on The Tudors, weaves a thrilling sonic tapestry for another notorious European family.

THE BORGIAS premieres Sunday, April 3rd with a special 2-hour pilot, only on SHOWTIME®.

BRIAN TYLER on Sounding Off: Video Interview with FAST FIVE composer Brian Tyler

FAST FIVE has been burning up the box office as the original crew comes together in this fifth film in the series to reestablish old relationships, create new ones, pull off a high stakes heist and, well you know, race cars . Unlike the previous four films, FAST FIVE has started moving further away from its origins as an almost music video set to car races, with the story evolving and the stakes in both their personal and business lives getting raised at every turn. To that end, the music in this installment in the franchise was much more score-heavy, relying on full orchestration to support the story and action scenes rather than just utilizing songs from various artists.

To bring this world to life, director Justin Lin turned to composer Brian Tyler (BATTLE: LA, EAGLE EYE) who had also scored the past two films (and possibly a bit of the first...) in the series, THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT and FAST & FURIOUS, to create the high drama, high action score for FAST FIVE.
