Behind the Scenes: On Chesil Beach & its Gorgeous Soundtrack

Saoirse Ronan plays a gifted violinist in On Chesil Beach

Music is important to almost all films, but when one of your two leads is a gifted violinist, trained in the classics, the score is all the more important. In On Chesil Beach, Florence plays a violin student who falls in love with Edward, a rock and roll fan. 

The following video takes a look at how the film’s composer Dan Jones approached the music including what he describes as how Florence experiences the feeling of falling in love and “carrying this music in her head.’’  

I hope this doesn’t ruin the film for you but it will be Esther Yoo, not Saoirse Ronan, you’ll be hearing play the violin throughout the movie. But you knew that, didn’t you? As genius as Ronan is, our young three-time Oscar nominee really can’t do everything. I’m looking forward, though, to seeing what she does in this film.

Both the movie and the soundtrack from Decca Records are set for release May 18th. You can pre-order the soundtrack on Amazon now. It sounds like the kind of music that swells and envelops you.
