Composer Christophe Beck returns on "Muppets Most Wanted" after performing scoring duties on the previous film, "The Muppets".
With the European setting of this latest adventure, Beck was able to integrate various regional sounds into the score. It has everything: action, some Slavic, male-chorus sounds for the Eastern European villain, Russian marches and a myriad of other styles in this frenetic, colorful score.
Featuring around 75 musicians plus choir and regional instruments, Beck allows for the various parts of the orchestra to shine. In a time when brass and strings dominate scores, Beck allows the other sections to take center stage as well, particularly the woodwinds which are given little focus these days. As an added bonus, included here is the premiere release of Beck's score to the previous epic, "The Muppets".
