Tale of a Forest - 10/10 - 评论 John Mansell, 提交于 (英语)
Panu Aaltio is a young composer who has in a relatively short time period established himself amongst his peers and also film music collectors and critics as a music-smith of considerable talent and worth. His music for film and television and even games is infectious, emotive and original, one of his scores for a feature length documentary has been recently issued onto compact disc by the ever industrious recording label Movie Score Media, METSAN TARINA or TALE OF A FOREST is a delightful work and also a soundtrack that contains so many themes that it is hard to believe all of this comes from just one movie. The composer has created a sweeping score that gets straight to the listeners emotions, its poignant and delicate themes are haunting and refreshing with effective use made of solo piano, strings both as solo performances and as a section of the orchestra, also woodwind is in abundance as we hear plaintive, mischievous and intricate tone poems that seem to skip, hop and run as animals would in the wild. There is an air and a presence to this work that just attracts and entertains the listener. I think one of the most attractive cues is SNOWFALL, it begins with solo piano supported by woodwind, and if one closes ones eyes it is easy to imagine the snow falling, there is a kind of serene and gentle atmosphere to this music, solo violin is added mid way through the cue just fleetingly and as this rises and then again fades harp moves to centre stage and continues to elegantly relay the gentle and soothing atmosphere that has already been created, solo piano seamlessly segues back into the composition just delicately picking out a four note motif that is enhanced by flute and gracefully plucked strings bringing the cue to its conclusion. LOVE, CARE AND RESPECT is another wonderful cue from the score and also the longest on the compact disc, this seems to be a culmination or gathering of all of the score prominent themes which are laced together and performed beautifully, it is an emotive track that is graceful, heart warming, majestic and just so pleasing, piano again is one of the main components of the composition, with strings and woodwind bolstering and underlining its performance, the piece moves into a near adagio for strings part way through but this is interrupted by a crescendo of sorts performed by brass, piano then returns underlined by a sorrowful sounding solo violin the two instruments complimenting each other perfectly as the cue draws to a close. Overall this is a breathtaking score and one that I am sure will be honoured in the up and coming Awards season, Panu Aaltio is a composer to watch and maybe collectors should check out his other scores asap.

Tale of a Forest - 09/10 - 评论 Guy Verfaillie, 提交于 (荷兰人)
Metsän Tarina (Tale of a Forest) is een documentaire over de fauna en flora in het Finse woud.

De begeleidende muziek is van de componist Panu Aaltio. Ondanks het kleine budget die hij mocht spenderen, slaagde hij erin om een krachtige en kleurrijke score neer te pennen. Hij kon slechts beroep doen op een klein orkest, maar de kwaliteit die wordt geleverd is meer dan uitstekend.

Vanaf de eerste track ‘The Tale of a Forest’ toont Aaltio zijn kunnen. Een prachtig thema waar de hobo een belangrijke rol speelt. De wondere wereld van het Finse dierenrijk wordt aan de hand van strijkers, piano, fluit en blaasinstrumenten levendig geportreteerd.

In ‘A Midsummer Treasure’ krijg je een mooi samenspel tussen fluit en violen. Misschien wel de mooiste track van dit album.

Ook de duistere kanten van het dierenrijk komen aan bod in onder meer ‘Days Gone By’ en ‘Ant Kingdom’. In de eerst vernoemde maakt Aaltio gebruik van een koor om de donkere sfeer weer te geven.

Panu Aaltio werd voor deze score terecht bekroond met de IFMCA-award 2013 in de categorie ‘Beste score voor een documentaire’. In het verleden wist deze componist me al te bekoren met “The Home of Dark Butterflies”. Met “Metsän Tarina” bewijst Aaltio dat hij geen eendagsvlieg is. Tot op heden was George Fenton de referentie voor begeleidende muziek van natuurdocumentaires. Aaltio zou wel eens een stevige concurrent kunnen worden. Een score die vanaf de eerste track weet te boeien en die je zeker in huis dient te halen.

SCORE NOMINATED FOR TWO ‘SOUNDTRACK GEEK AWARDS’ (“Best Original Score” and “Best Documentary Score”)


“A real gem of a score by anyone’s standards, one of the most impressive of 2012.” – Movie Wave

A strong contender for the title ‘Best Documentary Score’ of the year 2012, Panu Aaltio’s original music for the first Finnish feature length nature documentary to receive a wide domestic theatrical release is a also one of the most beautiful soundtracks of the year. Following the example set by composers such as Bruno Coulais (Oceans, Winged Migration) and George Fenton (Planet Earth, Life), Aaltio underscores the drama and emotions of this wildlife adventure with broad but sophisticated brush strokes. Several themes are heard throughout the score, and the sheer beauty of these tracks are contrasted by playful scherzos showcasing inspired writing for flutes, woodwinds and pizzicato strings and majestic fanfares for brass, strings and percussion.

MovieScore Media’s releases of Aaltio’s scores for The Home of Dark Butterflies and Dawn of the Dragonslayer has already established the composer as one to watch – with the arrival of the music for Metsän tarina, there is no doubt that he is one of the most talented of his generation!
