Soundtrack News: ‘Mr. Malcolm’s List’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to be Released July 1st

 Lakeshore Records is set to release Mr. Malcolm’s List—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring music by award-winning neo-classical composer Amelia Warner (Wild Mountain Thyme), digitally on July 1.  Warner is adept at creating timeless sounding scores for films with expansive stories and for this historical drama, she balances gravitas and grandeur with playful, energetic cues.  The Bleecker Street film directed by Emma Holly Jones and starring Freida Pinto Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù and Zawe Ashton exclusively in theaters on July 1st.

Says Warner about Mr. Malcolm’s List:

“I had an incredible time working on Mr. Malcom’s List and was so inspired and excited by Emma’s vision for the film. We wanted the music to feel classic and timeless. We hoped that it would ground the story and give the film weight and grandeur. I really enjoyed playing around with textures, using shimmering harmonics and woodwind trills to create a fizziness and energy. I wanted there to be a fun playfulness and mischief to the score which was achieved with characterful and expressive woodwind. I also wanted the score to feel romantic and sweeping and have hopefully achieved that with the main love theme for Malcom and Selina. I wanted this theme to feel like it was glowing and sparkling surrounding it with magical glittering harmonics and flute trills.”

Breakthrough neo-classical composer Amelia Warner is best known for her stunning soundtrack for the 2018 Irish-American film ‘Mary Shelley’, directed by Haifaa al-Mansour and starring Elle Fanning. It won Amelia the ‘Breakthrough Composer of The Year’ at the International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) Awards in 2019, and a nomination in the ‘Discovery of the Year’ category at the World Soundtrack Awards.

Mr. Malcolm’s List is summarized as follows:

When she fails to meet an item on his list of requirements for a bride, Julia Thistlewaite (Zawe Ashton) is jilted by London’s most eligible bachelor, Mr. Malcolm (Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù). Feeling humiliated and determined to exact revenge, she convinces her friend Selina Dalton (Freida Pinto) to play the role of his ideal match. Soon, Mr. Malcolm wonders whether he’s found the perfect woman…or the perfect hoax.

    There is also a classical piece of music played during their waltz and during the end credits. It is not part of Warner’s original score. I cannot find it anywhere, and it is driving me crazy. I would love it if someone could help me figure it out.
    Thanks!
