The Score


The Score is a weekly celebration of symphonic music in film, and a fascinating guided tour through America's best-loved art form. It includes timely box office tie-ins and enticing weekly themes. Host Edmund Stone is a classically trained Shakespearean actor whose background includes a variety of stage and screen roles.


Ryuichi Sakamoto Remembered: Composer, performer and activist Ryuichi Sakamoto wrote his first film score in 1983. His final score appeared 40 years later in 2023, the year he died. This week on The Score, guest host Warren Black surveys Sakamoto's four decades of music for big-budget films like The Last Emperor and The Revenant, as well as his music for television, anime and video games.



A Fairy Ring: Step into a magical realm this week on The Score, as host Edmund Stone dares to venture into the mystical Land of Fairies. From the plucky Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream to a hockey player who becomes the Tooth Fairy, and dear Dobby in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.



Farmer's Market: Get away from the urban jungle for a while with a mood-enhancing virtual visit to the Farmer's Market. This week, host and former farm boy Edmund Stone brings you a basket full of music from films including The Secret Life of Pets 2, Babe, Food Inc. and more.
