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.

Soundtrack Dreams Gives Rob Simonsen’s ‘The Age Of Adaline’ A Perfect Score
So if Brian Tyler is the new Jerry Goldsmith and Michael Giacchino is the heir of John Williams, can I dream about Rob Simonsen someday taking over the emotional scepter form James Newton Howard? 10 years from now we will be regarding this composition as a classic. Do yourselves a favor and rush to get it. And if the movie is half as good as the score, it will be amazing. –Soundtrack Dreams
It’s a lot of talent on one track, and the result is something stirring and beautiful, well befitting the film’s complicated themes of love and time. Pulsing synths lend an ethereal tone that is tethered gently by slow-drawn strings. Tonra’s voice rings clear and slightly sad as she entreats a lover, “Speak slowly/ Savor every word/ So we won’t forget that time/ Won’t wait for no one.” She reaches new heights on the words of the title as triumphant drums beat upward in an arc of hope. –Consequence of Sound
