The official soundtrack for The Virtuoso was written by film composer, Tim Johnson and performed beautifully by violinist, Adelia Myslov as a totally unique, contemporary classical music theme to accompany my debut novel.
It’s the musical equivalent of the story, encompassing elements of Isabelle’s character and her virtuosity, whilst also giving readers a musical experience of the essence of the novel. The music theme aligns with the themes in the book.
Music is an incredibly powerful portal to our emotions, memories and imagination; perhaps in a way that can be felt more deeply than through language alone.
I hope you’ll agree that it’s also gorgeous to listen to as a stand-alone piece.
I talked about the story behind the music in a recent blog post – #TheVirtuoso – First the Book, Now the Music! http://wp.me/p4F0sV-wT
For any violinists out there who want to try their hand at playing the theme, here is the The Virtuoso music score.
If you want to listen to the music on your computer, MP3 player, iPod or via your streaming service, here are the links:
