So I’ve finally gotten around to listening to “The Batman” original score soundtrack. I hardly ever buy soundtracks much but I bought this soundtrack to “The Batman” movie ’cause I liked the score.
Really liked the whole score. Michael Giacchino is a great composer and I’ve never heard of him before. He’s definitely very classical influenced… ’cause I’m sure all the music for the movie was written on piano first before the score.
“The Batman” soundtrack is over 2 hrs worth of music but I’ve listened through the whole thing. I would have to say though that the best track on the album is the final track “Sonata In Darkness”. Which you can hear some of that in the rolling credits at the end of the movie. This track is just piano playing and that’s it. No orchestration and no other instruments, just one person playing a piano and it’s very classical piano inspired. Kind of reminds me of stuff like Beethoven and Mozart.
That final track “Sonata In Darkness” is beautiful stuff, though. This score also has a gangster movie and film noir kind of feeling, ya know?
The ending of “The Batman” was very powerful and the credits needed a very powerful score and this piano playing fit that perfectly.
“The Batman” is an amazing and mind-blowing movie itself, though. Definitely the best Batman movie ever made and I definitely plan on re-watching it on HBO MAX this weekend.
