Did anyone on this forum hear this piece premiered last month? I'm very curious to know how it sounded (and whether there's a recording I might hear?)

Thomas Newman is probably my favourite contemporary film composer, mainly for his scores composed in the 90s - Green Mile, Shawshank and American Beauty (best of all) amongst many others. This last decade he has tended to repeat himself, but his scores continue to be superbly subtle (not to mention beautiful) backdrops for films. Unlike many others film composers with a classical bent he hasn't composed many concert works at all (this is the first one I have heard of).

The large print giveth, and the small print taketh away
