Howe Records release Howard Shore's score for Denial. Based on the acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, the film recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, in cases of libel, the burden of proof is on the defendant, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team, led by Richard Rampton, to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred...
Howard Shore weaves an intricate score for Denial, which at times musically reminded me of his previous work on The Silence of the Lambs (most notably on tracks like 'Denial' and 'The DIshonest Waiter').
The score contains 18 tracks (39 min, 22 sec) and represents Shore at his most melancholic and moving. It's a beautiful album that see him going back to the style of his earlier scores - this is most evident on tracks like 'The Judgement'.
An impressive, and well rounded collection of beautiful themes.
