Preview Alan Silvestri’s CAPTAIN AMERICA score tracks

In case you missed it over the 4th of July weekend, America fans, be sure to play through this track-sampling preview below of Alan Silvestri‘s score for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, as assembled by MarvelFreshmanTV in this handy YouTube compilation.

This 13:47-length video (awash in a slideshow of the new CAPTAIN AMERICA wallpaper styles) provides a seemingly wide range of tracks from the score, including the engaging Main Titles theme (or is it an anthem?) to start off the sampler.  Plenty of Silvestri orchestration and thematic moments flavor the score, at moments harkening back to his BACK TO THE FUTURE scores in heroic brass tones, soaring strings and military cadence percussion beats and flourishes. There are several nice touches of nostalgic-sounding composition in spots as well, which should enhance the 1940s period storytelling of underdog Steve Rogers becoming the supersoldier Captain America to wage battles against the villainous Red Skull and the HYDRA organization.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull. Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, the film releases July 22, 2011.
