The Age Of Adaline: An Interview With Composer Rob Simonsen | Film Music Magazine

Rob Simonsen-Scored Film ‘The Age Of Adaline’ Opens In Theaters Nationwide On April 24


Simonsen responds with a beautiful, longing score that proves to be his most sumptuously traditional work yet. Beyond-lush romantic strings, angelic voices, gossamer bells combine for a gloriously thematic tapestry that’s nothing less than heaven-sent music. It’s longing beauty as the height or irony for a woman who’d like nothing better than to once again be touched by the hand of age – anxious music conveying a constant navigation of identities to hide her true self.  -Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine


Film music critic Daniel Schweiger recently interviewed Rob Simonsen, the composer of The Age Of Adaline.  The score album is out now via Lakeshore Records, and the film opens this Friday nationwide.  See below for more on the interview.
