We’ve been loving this year’s crop of Oscar-worthy soundtracks, especially Interstellar (Hans Zimmer), The Imitation Game (Alexandre Desplat) and The Theory of Everything (Jóhann Jóhannsson), but this track (number 17: Camping) from The Theory of Everything is my absolute favourite.
It’s only very short but it makes me tear up a little each time I hear it. I think it’s because it’s both about the music (the cello) and the sentiment (lovers uniting after years of longing).
Do take a moment to play it, as well as the rest of the soundtrack. It’s by Jóhann Jóhannsson.
