    This 1997 release of the music for PATTON features composer Jerry Goldsmith conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. The performance is a robust reading of the score, giving breath to Goldsmith's sweeping, martial themes. Naturally, given the film's subject, much of the music has an overt militaristic flavor. Various battle sequences in the film are represented by processionals, marches, and bombastic swells of sound characterized by ruffling drums and brass fanfare (one figure in particular--a series of triplets played on a trumpet--is the score's most consistent leitmotiv).
    But much of the score is surprisingly meditative, with lush orchestral passages that evoke the complexities of Patton's personality (including his religious devotion). Goldsmith's mixing of stately themes (which repeat and vary throughout), introspective moods, and galloping energy perfectly complements the film and makes for an intriguing independent listen as well. Also included here is the score to TORA! TORA! TORA!, a documentary-style recreation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, for which Goldsmith wrote an compelling, dramatically rich five-part suite (complete with the use of Japanese instruments and musical phrases).
