Alexandre Desplat

Composer, 'Caution,' 'Compass,' 'Emporium'

For too long, Desplat’s music was known mostly to film score connoisseurs. They savored his elegant expression and deft orchestration in films including “Girl With a Pearl Earring,” and “Syriana.” But Desplat’s relative obscurity faded last year when the Paris native’s witty soundtrack to “The Queen” nabbed an Oscar nom. His rep should grow even more thanks to transcendent work in “Lust, Caution” along with fantasies “The Golden Compass” and “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.”
