"Frozen" (2013) - Original Medley and Film Review

Yesterday I was able to watch the film "Frozen" for the first time on DVD (I mean Blu-Ray, cos it's so much better!), and it has become my favorite film -- all because of the score! Christophe Beck did a wonderful job incorporating the great songs of "Let it Go" and "Do You Want to Build A Snowman" into the actual orchestral score of the piece, and it all builds with that Disney magic an orchestra only produces for a Disney film. I enjoyed it so much, I spent about six hours today writing a short four-minute medley of music from the film for string orchestra, which was a lot of fun. I basically took each song or section of music I liked from the soundtrack and built them into the piece like motives, rather than going through and playing each piece one after the other. It'll be fun to play through one of the violin parts either on my own or possibly with the orchestra at the end of the year after our concerts are over... We'll have to see. Anyways, I would definitely recommend this film to all music-lovers, as I believe the score does live up to its expectations.

I wrote a review on IMDB online, so be sure to check it out! Thanks for reading!
