Conan the Barbarian (1999) Retail CD
Based on the pulp tales of Robert E. Howard, John Milius's Conan The Barbarian (1982) is a sword-and-sorcery epic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a warrior who seeks vengeance on a cult leader (James Earl Jones) who massacred his village. Still his finest effort to date, Basil Poledouris's sweeping, thematic score functions as a continuous music drama, covering Milius's visceral film from beginning to end. Written for 24 French horns, strings, and percussion, the opening "Anvil Of Crom" features a noble theme for Conan and a melodic bridge emblematic of his quest. To represent the cult leadermore…'s twisted misanthropy, Poledouris composed a massive choral piece (inspired by Orff's Carmina Burana) adding Latin verses and Eastern elements to denote the Russian locale. Other highlights include a strong love theme for the physically well-matched pair of Conan and Valeria ("Wifeing"), a graceful, folk-influenced melody evoking medieval codes of honour ("Theology/Civilization"), and "The Orgy", in which Poledouris uses thematic repetition and melodic counterpoint to cast an obsessive, hallucinatory spell over Conan's assault on Thulsa Doom's chamber. A modern film-music classic, stunningly recorded and performed. --Kevin Mulhall
