As a music enthusiast and aspiring composer myself, I have always held great admiration for artists like Enis Rotthoff working in the film and video game industry. These composers and their works have had a profound impact on my personal development, influencing and teaching me valuable lessons in composing thematic music. They possess the remarkable ability to give sound to stories, an admirable feat. Even after two decades since my initial discovery, I find myself returning to the compositions of legends such as Hans Zimmer (Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Inception, The Dark Knight, Rain Man), John Williams (Star Wars, Saving Private Ryan), Jeff van Dyck (Medieval Total War: II, Rome Total War), Jeremy Soule (The Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim), and John Carpenter (The Thing), as they continue to inspire me. Enis Rotthoff, in this case, immediately brought to mind these esteemed names at the top of the industry, not only with his compositions but also with his overall approach and understanding of music.

Love Sarah is a remarkable soundtrack album that I had the pleasure of discovering recently. Although I have yet to watch the film, listening to the entire album provided me with a deep understanding of its genre, setting, events, story, time, and characters. The music effectively transfers all this information, an astonishing feat in itself. From what I gather, Love Sarah tells a heartwarming story set in a modern city. The interactions of a few characters lead to positive feelings, reminiscent of the themes explored in Julia Roberts' movies. Love is undoubtedly a central theme in this tale, a notion confirmed when viewing the trailer.

Enis Rotthoff demonstrates a genuine understanding of the story, effectively translating it into beautiful, heartwarming musical words and sentences. This particular work evoked memories of Hans Zimmer's earlier compositions, particularly his score for The Last Samurai. The album resonates with a powerful emotional presence that lingers in the mind. The songs embody positive vibes that ebb and flow with dramatic moments, mirroring the essence of our own lives. The instrumentation throughout the album is truly fantastic. Rotthoff skillfully employs silence, allowing specific instruments to highlight necessary messages, building and releasing tension while maintaining a sense of freshness and excitement.

Technically speaking, Love Sarah album boasts world-class standards in every aspect. It stands as a professional and timeless movie soundtrack album, rivaling the works of the legendary names I mentioned earlier. Rotthoff's technical and musical prowess shine through with remarkable coherence.

Considering all aspects, I am genuinely blown away by Enis Rotthoff's work and his immense potential. He is undeniably a rising star, a brilliant composer whose enchanting, heartwarming music transports me back to my childhood and stirs my curiosity about the movie itself.
