Master and Commander

A trio of noted Australian musicians--Iva Davies, Richard Tognetti and Christopher Gordon--composed the film's score. They previously collaborated on "The Ghost of Time," a piece commissioned for the Millennium celebrations in Sydney, which came to the attention of Peter Weir. The director was so impressed, he played the piece on the Master And Commander set throughout production, and he asked its creators to write the music for his movie. The score interweaves "Old World" and "New World" music, reflecting the talents and backgrounds of its composers. Iva Davies hails from both pop and classical traditions Richard Tognetti, one of the world's great violin virtuosos, taught Russell Crowe the ins and outs of the instrument and film/television composer Christopher Gordon brought orchestral texture to the project. Given the period, it comes as no surprise that the score is infused with source music from Bach (Cello Suite) and Mozart, among other great classical composers. Percussion dominates portions of the score."Drums signal the forward movement of the ship," says Davies,"that it's on a mission. It brings you back into the action." The score's biggest surprise comes with its use of synthesisers."Peter doesn't make films in the expected way," says Davies,"and for that reason we wanted the score to be not what everyone expected.

Performer Notes
  • Full Title: Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World.
  • Original score composed by Iva Davies, Christopher Gordon, and Richard Tognetti.
  • Producers: Iva Davies, Christopher Gordon, Richard Tognetti.
  • The original score for the film MASTER AND COMMANDER is the result of a collaborative effort by three composers: Iva Davies, Christopher Gordon, and Richard Tognetti. Their music matches the movie's epic scale and effectively conveys the exhilaration of adventure on the high seas during the Napoleonic wars. Tracks such as "The Far Side of the World" and "Smoke N'Oakum" are panoramic soundscapes full of dramatic themes and evocative motifs, while "Into the Fog," "The Doldrums," and "The Battle" utilize propulsive rhythms and atmospheric sound effects to create an ambiance of mystery, danger, and suspense. Arrangements of traditional folk tunes such as "The Cuckold Comes Out of the Avery," "O'Sullivan's March," and "Nancy Dawson" serve to lighten the mood. The soundtrack also includes music from the time period the film is set in such as Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3, Boccherini's "La Musica Notturna Delle Strade Di Madrid," and the Prelude from Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 as performed by Yo-Yo Ma.
