Music (Score)

Stephen Warbeck

Stephen Warbeck is the King Composer of British dramas. 

He got his start on the Helen Mirren drama Prime Suspect. Shakespeare in Love is a decidedly lighter fare, with its frothy duels as opposed to hard-hitting police interrogations. Because this is a romantic comedy, and not a Shakespearean tragedy, Warbeck's light-hearted score helps keep the tone bright. No one is going to lose a hand and no blood-spraying arteries will be severed in these sword-fights.

Warbeck won an Academy Award for his score, and he later worked again with director John Madden and Gwyneth Paltrow in the 2005 math drama Proof. 

Warbeck + Madden = a winning combination.
