Program Notes

Here is a concise medley of the exciting music from the 2017 installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga. Skillfully arranged with flexible scoring, it allows smaller bands or ensembles with mixed or incomplete instrumentation to successfully perform music from the rollicking soundtrack.

- Program Note by publisher


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a 2017 American swashbuckler fantasy film, the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series and the sequel to On Stranger Tides (2011). Johnny Depp, Kevin McNally, and Geoffrey Rush reprised their roles and were joined by Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, and Kaya Scodelario. In the film, Captain Jack Sparrow searches for the Trident of Poseidon while being pursued by an undead sea captain and his crew.

This was the first film in the series that Hans Zimmer did not compose the music for. Instead, the main composer is one of his protégés, Geoff Zanelli, who had worked on the previous four installments in the franchise. Zanelli used his experience with the franchise to build a new sound for the film. He stated that "you don't have to modernize the melodies, those are timeless," citing one example of how he tried to make the sound more modern by featuring an electric cello to create a menacing leitmotif for the undead Captain Armando Salazar (Javier Bardem). This was also the first Pirates of the Caribbean score to feature mostly live percussion, as opposed to the programmed percussion in the prior scores.
