Now Streaming: The Soundtrack for Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’
Wes Anderson’s confectionary caper story The Grand Budapest Hotel is a delicious treat that never stops moving. With its sprawling cast of Anderson-world characters, led by the sweetly scented Ralph Fiennes, the constant motion of the film—which tells the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend—is given a wonderful undercurrent by its energetic yet emotionally stirring score, thanks to composer Alexandre Desplat. Alongside Desplat’s music are Russian folk songs and the Osipov State Russian Folk Orchestra to complete the soundtrack—all co-produced by Anderson and longtime collaborator Randall Poster.
And now, thanks to Pitchfork Advance, you can stream the soundtrack in its entirety HERE. Enjoy.
