MovieScore Media release Robin Hoffmann’s music for the Danish romantic drama, In Love & War. Co-written and directed by Kaspar Torstig, the film tells the story of a Danish soldier, named Esben, who has escaped from the hell of war to return to his beloved wife and son. The home front however has changed and a dapper German officer has gotten close to Esben's wife and son - trying to be the best replacement he could be. Based on a true story, the film follows Esben’s journey as the hell of war rips his family apart in more than one way...

Robin Hoffmann delivers some beautiful themes with his score for In Love & War (26 tracks - 1 hr, 12 min, 57 sec). The composer takes a traditional approach, using only the sound of acoustic instruments. Here he pairs a large symphony orchestra with four solo string players to cover the complete emotional range of the movie.

Discussing the music, Hoffmann said: "The score weaves around a main theme portraying the bond of the protagonist family. This theme keeps reappearing throughout the score in many different emotional stages to correlate with the quite dramatic shifts of this relationship happening in the movie."

Overall, a beautiful and rich score that you should get hours of listening pleasure from. This is the sort of soundtrack that you'll also revisit for years to come.
