Quarterly Meeting: Jane Austen Soundtracks

June 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Quarterly Meeting: “The World of Jane Austen Soundtracks” by Ruth Mudge

Soundtracks are one of many vehicles used to portray the emotions, tone, era, comedy, and more within films. In listening to and comparing musical themes, particularly from adaptations of “Pride and Prejudice,” this session will uncover the variety of ways that soundtracks interpret Jane’s stories. A few of the musical choices includes exploring instrumentation options, staying in the classical era or radically departing from it, the use of character themes vs. emotional swells, even the use of a pianoforte vs a modern piano, to uncover how music powerfully impacts the telling of these beloved stories.
