Music from the HBO Film


Composers: Evgueni Galperine and Sacha Galperine
Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 27 April 2018

Lakeshore Records release Evgueni Galperine and Sacha Galperine's score for Paterno. The film centres on Penn State’s Joe Paterno in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. After becoming the winningest coach in college football history, Paterno’s legacy is challenged and he is forced to face questions of institutional failure in regard to the victims...

Evgueni Galperine and Sacha Galperine deliver some interesting themes across this score's 11 tracks (31 min, 31 sec). While it's mostly an atmospheric offering, there are some impressive tracks to discover, including the slow building 'And His Life Flashed Before His Eyes' which is echoed in the closing 'The Game'.

It's a powerful little score that packs quite a punch. It's a major step forward for the Galperine's (Loveless; The Wizard of Lies).
