Featuring Original Music Composed By Maurizio Malagnini

(August 12, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA) – Silva Screen Records will digitally release the Emmy-nominated score to THE PARADISE Season 2 – Original Television Soundtrack on August 14, 2015. The album features the original music written by Maurizio Malagnini (CALL THE MIDWIFE, THE BODY FARM).

When starting to compose the score for the first season of THE PARADISE in 2012, Maurizio took a classic approach for creating the tonal palate for the series. “The producer, Simon Lewis, contacted me very early in pre-production to invite me to compose the music for the adaptation of Zola’s novel,” Maurizio said. “He suggested that I be inspired by James Tissot’s paintings, representing the costumes and the art design of that time. They looked very colorful and lush and this made me think immediately that woodwinds would have to play a prominent part in the score and a large orchestral sound would be perfect.”

Following the success of the first season, Maurizio was commissioned to compose the second season of THE PARADISE to transport the audience back in time once more. He studied LAKME by Leo Delibes (1883) and CARMEN by Bizet (1875) to incorporate some of the elements of the French Opera into the TV Show. The soundtrack was recorded by the BBC Concert Orchestra.
