Composer Dario Marianelli sole Italian Oscar contender

Los Angeles, Janaury 10 - Composer Dario Marianelli is the sole Italian Oscar candidate this year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Thursday. The Pisan-born composer is in the running with the soundtrack to Anna Karenina, directed by Joe Wright and starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law. Marianelli, 49, won an Oscar and Golden Globe in 2008 for his work on Joe Wright's film Atonement. Marianelli also collaborated with Wright on Pride and Prejudice (2005), starring Keira Knightley, Matthew Macfadyen and Brenda Blethyn, and The Soloist (2009), starring Jamie Foxx, Robert Downey Jr, and Catherine Keener. Marianelli has worked with a number of award-winning directors in a range of genres, from thrillers to adventure fantasy to romantic comedies. These include Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm (2005), starring Matt Damon and the late Heath Ledger; Shooting Dogs (2005), directed by Michael Caton-Jones and starring John Hurt and Hugh Dancy; V for Vendetta, starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving; Neil Jordan's The Brave One (2007), starring Jodie Foster, Alejandro Amenabar's Agora (2009); the 2011 version of Jane Eyre; and Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, a 2012 release directed by Lasse Halstrom with Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor. Besides writing music for films he has composed chamber music, vocal and orchestral works, several ballet scores and incidental music for the theater. After a year as a postgraduate composer at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in Britain, he spent three years at the National Film and Television School, from which he graduated in 1997.
