The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is this summer’s Disney fantasy-adventure film, featuring the wonderful Nicolas Cage and delightfully awkward Jay Baruchel. The soundtrack for this film contains 22 scores, conducted and recorded by Trevor Rabin, which follow the main events of the film with an exciting orchestral sound.
If you haven’t seen this film, I would compare it to the National Treasure series – its relatively easy to follow, and fun to watch. The soundtrack is pretty standard for Disney, and very reminiscent of Nation Treasure, which was also conducted by Trevor Rabin. The tracks are all orchestral, with the addition of electronic instruments to give the songs a more modern edge and really seemed to catch the moods of the characters at each part of the film, from awe and curiosity to fear and anticipation. I really enjoyed this soundtrack even without the film playing, and am looking forward to hearing more from Trevor Rabin!
Check out the soundtrack on iTunes.
Apart from the main soundtrack, this movie also features 12 popular songs which I have yet to find compiled onto a CD. The most significant of these (due it its reappearance in the movie) was OneRepublic – Secrets, which has quickly become one of my favourite songs.
