Sony Classical will release a soundtrack album for the period drama The Chaperone. The album features the film’s original music composed by Marcelo Zarvos (Fences, Wonder, The Affair, Ray Donovan, The Good Shepherd, Enough Said). Also included are tracks by The Sundown Stompers, Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks, The Hot Pennies, Adam Nielsen & others. The soundtrack will be released tomorrow, March 29 and will be available to purchase here (digital version) and here (CD version). The Chaperone is directed by Michael Engler, written by Julian Fellowes and stars Elizabeth McGovern, Haley Lu Richardson, Géza Röhrig, Campbell Scott, Andrew Burnap, Victoria Hill, Miranda Otto, Robert Fairchild, Matt McGrath and Blythe Danner. The movie is based on Laura Moriarty’s best-selling novel and centers on a woman whose life is changed forever when she chaperones a young and soon to be famous Louise Brooks to New York in the early 1920s.

    Can anyone tell me the name and composer of the first piece one hears during the closing credits? It is not listed in the soundtrack as far as I can tell. Seems to be a piano solo or duet. The other pieces by Zarvos all seem to have other instruments than the piano. And it may not be by Zarvos. Help. Thanks.

      The piano music in the dance theatre is mostly Chopin. Gorgeous piano. he was called the “poet” of the piano. no, they don’t acknowledge this music and it’s a shame.
