Rachel Portman

A British born (December 11, 1960 in Haslemere) composer, Rachel Portman's biggest claim to fame was being the first woman to win an Academy Award (an Oscar, that is) for Best Original Score. The award, which came about due to her work for the film Emma in 1996, wasn't her only chance at the coveted prize, as she continued her streak of well-respected and well-received works by earning nominations in 1999 and 2000 for Cider House Rules and Chocolat, respectively. Her first score, for the film War of the Buttons, appeared in 1994, and since then, Portman worked on and composed scores for more than 20 films, including the aforementioned box office hits, as well as Home Fries, Hart's War, and the remake of the Manchurian Candidate. She also composed the score for the 2008 film The Duchess, starring Keira Knightley. ~ Chris True, Rovi

What? No mention of her beautiful OPERA, The Little Prince, in her bio?

I love everything Portman does.
This was a great movie. It's weird how the girl who came from the poor family ended up being rich, on the other hand the girl from the rich family ended up being poor. All this was based on how small their feet were. But this song is really beautiful.

This music is.... incredible, to be honest. The perfect balance of pure emotion of varying degrees creates an elaborate mood that can be interpreted on so many levels of consciousnes s . Despite this effect, the music flows smoothly and is not to jarring to the mind and other senses. Wow.
I can only describe her music as purely majestic

Rachel Portman's film scores are uniformly wonderful. My introduction to her work was the score to an Australian film called Sirens, but Chocolat, Nicholas Nickleby, and countless other movies are much richer for her contribution s .

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

This sounds like the soundtrack from Pride and Prejudice? I think perhaps it has been either mislabled or on this movie as well.
She's so inspiring! :)
I love her work. She is magnificent.

nikibelkowsk i , I totally agree - I was aghast when I read Rachel Portman's biggest claim to fame was being the first woman to win a .... What condescendin g nonsense!! Chris True, get a life!

Natalie Portman was born in Israel in 1981. Rachel Portman was born in 1961 in the UK. The two are not related.

So glad to be introduced to Rachel Portman because I have loved her music without knowing about her. Thanks for the bio but would like to know more about this fine artist.
Natalie Portman was not in The Duchess. That was Kiera Knightley.
Does anyone wonder if Natalie Portman and Rachel Portman are sisters? Because Natalie was in the duchess and Rachel played music...
The biography presented here is pitifully inadequate for such an amazing talent as Portman. Funny how the biographies of the male contemporary composers are so much more in depth - even for those whose talents and accomplishme n t s pale in comparison to Portman. Shame on Pandora for this atrocious oversight.

Portman is a great artist
Would love to see mention of Nicholas Nickleby score by Rachel Portman also. It's fantastic!
Maybe John Williams? I can see that... if you just look at John Williams' more contemplativ e music, like say Empire of the Sun or Seven Years in Tibet.
Hey, Mike, I guess you wrote this 2 years ago...but which John are you referring to? Did someone make a comparison? I love Rachel Portman's work and was curious.
Um, Pandora? Rachel and John are nothing like each other. Honest.
