"Hero" (2003) - Tan Dun


Sony Classical presents Tan Dun's award nominated score for "Hero", from director Zhang Yimou an epic film during the Qin dynasty featuring amazing martial arts, beautiful landscapes, breathtaking photography and haunting soundtrack...who could ask for anything more...but there is with Itzhak Perlman on Violin, Liu Li on Guoquin, You Yan is our Soprano and Chinese born Tan Dun as our primary artist on violin and conductor...not to mention Dun is also the arranger and composer of this first rate score.
A must have for all "film-score-buffs" with all the main ingredients of strings, brass, chorus and restless counterpoints that leaves your mouth watering for more..."For The World (Theme Music)", expressive asian counterbalance of times long ago from another place, beautiful and haunting..."Gone With The Leaves" and "Warriors", are stand outs that sonically satisfy the palette.
Tan Dun's score brings back memories of the Golden Age of composers like Max Steiner, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Elmer Bernstein, Franz Waxman and Miklos Rozsa...Dun's music has undeniable power, the main title sequence is that rare thing in film music...composing one of his most colorful and exuberant scores...always with a hint of freshness...this is an extremely good listen, even if you haven't seen the film...a soundtrack that stands on its own, just the way "film-score-buffs" like 'em!
