Rachel Portman Interview



Rachel Portman discusses the importance of the score to the characterization of the title character of Emma (1996). She also explains how the narrative point of view struck in the score for The Cider House Rules (1999) is more that of the character Dr Larch than the film’s presumptive hero Homer. She discusses how she goes about chord formations for her scores, and also goes into a quite detailed discussion of how her creative process as a composer works.
