Netflix is excited to announce the release of Persuasion (Soundtrack From the Netflix Film) by composer Stuart Earl. Coinciding with the release of the film, the album is available now, on all major digital streaming platforms and includes the single “Quietly Yours” by Birdy. Stuart Earl is an award-winning, Ivor Novello nominated composer. He’s based in London and works in film, television drama and theatre.
Living with her snobby family on the brink of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot (Dakota Johnson) is an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities. When Fredrick Wentworth (Cosmo Jarvis), the dashing one she once sent away, crashes back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances.
Regarding the score for Persuasion, composer Stuart Earl had the following to say:
“Composing the score for Persuasion and the creative process with [director] Carrie Cracknell was a complete joy. I was brought on relatively early in the process, which was great, as it allowed me to work on ideas whilst they were still shooting, including writing the music that they dance to in one of the scenes. But what was really creatively enjoyable, was that some of those very early sketches written to script, went straight into the edit and stayed there.”
He continues, “One of the real challenges with the score for Persuasion was getting the balance of tone between the lighter, comedic material alongside the more emotional journey that spans the film. This was something that definitely evolved over time during the editing process and swung between the extremes until we found a mix that seemed to sit well together and hold and deliver both of these tonal ideas together.”
