Alexandre Desplat’s ‘Little Women’ score out in December (listen to “Plumfield”)
Greta Gerwig’s upcoming big screen adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women is one of the most buzzed-about films of the holiday season. The movie’s not out till Christmas Day, but the score by Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Tree of Life, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Pt. 2), will be out December 13 via Sony Masterworks. “To capture the life of these four young girls on their path to adulthood, I have called in the four hands of two pianists,” explains Desplat. "They are surrounded by a chamber orchestra, which keeps us in the intimate world of these ‘little women.’ We recorded the score in New York City with the most wonderful musicians whose musicality and virtuosity went beyond my expectations.” Listen to “Plumfield,” which has those pianos complimented with harp, from the score now.
Little Women stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, and Eliza Scanlen, as well as Meryl Streep, Laura Dern and Timothee Chalamet. You can watch the trailer below.
