Cinemusical is hosted by composer, educator, and music critic Steven A. Kennedy. Steve's reviews appear in Film Score Monthly Online Magazine and at Film Music Review. Steve is a member of BMI, the International Film Music Critics Association, the American Composer's Forum, and the Dramatist's Guild of America. For information on his music, or to inquire about commissioning a work, visit his website. He has written two musicals: The Jurgens File (a contemporary work based on a true story that took place in MN in the 1950s-1980s); and The Magnificent Ambersons (based on the Booth Tarkington Pulitzer Prize-winning novel) with audio excerpts available at the site.
My Marian Sonata for Violin and Piano featured on the release In Tandem is now available for order.
The blog features reviews of releases of film, video game, and classical music.
There is a blend of contemporary and classic film scores that will appear here. Classical reviews focus primarily on 20th Century music as well as American music, however, occasional forays into previous periods appear as well to offer some variety.
Most of the reviews here will be of releases available in physical CD format. Reviews will be more infrequent (2020) due to less physical product availability and my own personal focus on composing this year. Reach out if you wish to have your releases reviewed here.
Please note that there are some formatting issues that may appear in older reviews possibly due to some overall design changes since the original post. Spammers be warned that all posts are monitored for approval and covert advertising is not allowed.
