In Belgium they chose to open this movie against Batman v Superman on March 23rd, it's a good thing we'll get the album 2 months in advance :-pComing soon !Added an extract ! :)Haha, I'm second row, too. :D<br>In Sofia.I will be going to 2 of the shows. Lucked out and got 2nd row for both of them. I'm incredibly excited for them and am confident I will enjoy them immensely :D
When I said concert arrangements and album releases afterwards, I wasn't thinking about The Prague Philharmonic, I thought of Hans' very own concerts in Frankfurt and elsewhere, which had an album release. :)<br>They had Miss Daisy and others included.<br>Still, I'm certain that whatever plays there, I'll be blown away.<br>Glad to hear you share my opinion on The Last Samurai, and if you are visiting his concert again somewhere, I hope you enjoy it, too. :)<br>It isn't your traditional orchestral concert. It is really hard to explain without giving things away but they have gone for a whole experience which is quite removed from what The Praque Philharmonic did. Even though the music is the same it actually comes across in a much different way. It is a much more emotional experience. I don't know if that is because it is actually Hans that is there and in charge. I do agree with what others are saying about The Last Samurai, I think it would work extremely well and I'm dying to hear it live.<br>I really am sure you will thoroughly enjoy yourself.<br>Can I download it?@Memphis<br><br>I understand. As I've said, I have no intentions of degrading them in any way, and I'm sure I'll enjoy the experience immensely, but my thoughts are that some of those pieces were already featured several times in other concert arrangements which had their album release. So, not only did we hear their original soundtrack versions, but we heard what they can be like in concert. And having that in mind, I'm kind of sorry that other great themes and orchestrations won't get their chance. And there are so many others in his opus, like some I've mentioned before. I also don't have any doubts in the power that those tracks I've listed can produce as a part of the whole experience. I'm hoping for a surprise, but if it doesn't happen, I'm sure I'm not going to be disappointed. :)I have the 2-track album version.
This is the version of the score that I have. Can someone help me figure out how this matches to the tracklist on this site? Some of them are obvious, others a little less so ("Long Dies/On the Hunt" is the same as "Doctor at Diner", right?), still others are just confusing. :pWell, i really hope it won't be the exact same show as in London.Thin red line and Da Vinci code and the joker will definitely be played, as they were already played in the London concerts. Injection probably not.Sry 18th of aprilBought myself an early christmas gift. Going 16th of april to Hamburg. 3 hours drive from Denmark.<br><br>I really hope these 2 are in the program:<br>The Thin Red Line (Journey to the Line)<br>The Da Vinci Code (Chevalier de Sangreal)<br>+ the joker<br>MI:2 (Injection)<br><br>Oh boy that would be cool :)<br>

Anyone else think that the part about 3 or 4 minutes into "The Ascent" resembles "Absurdity" from The Lone Ranger?

was the Chaz Jankel soundtrack never released for the k2 movie ?
there is so much energy in it ! were MR Zimmer its just to mellow for my taste

anyone know where you can buy it download it ?


Hybrid Soldier2013-09-15 09:36:58
Ask Robert Townson from 20 years ago, he's the one who decided to release that version of the score.

HZ has nothing to do with it.

Actually I'm still trying to see the British version of that movie with HZ's score, no way I listen to it with Jankel's ! :P

In South Africa, there's a dvd distributer named NEXT VIDEO, if I remember correctly, that released the PAL version with Zimmer/ Glennie-Smith's version. Check out an online store named KALAHARI, you should get it there :)

The picture and sound is great...

Is this the One on iTunes

MacArthur2013-09-02 06:10:31
Because I thought that Zimmer didn't do the music for K2. only the The Music Inspired by it

Anonymous2013-09-02 09:25:19
There are two scores - a European version (scored by Zimmer) and the original version (scored by Chaz Jankel).

I was dust cleaning my old cds, and I accidentally read the notes Hans wrote on the back of this album where he thanked Nick Glennie-Smith for writing and arranging some cues which have unfortunately been omitted from this record, so if someone was wondering the music on this cd is 100% Zimmer.

I wish the 12 tracks are leaked. Thanks for sharing just 007.

K22011-06-29 02:23:01
I think its the OST cut into tracks with possibly the end credits added from DVD.

T-Mann0362011-08-13 02:36:01
Is it possible if you could separate them by length of time on each of the 12 tracks?

Takehiro2011-08-13 05:26:33
1. (3:10)
2. (4:30)
3. (1:41)
4. (2:57)
5. (4:06)
6. (3:37)
7. (3:10)
8. (3:01)
9. (3:04)
10. (4:45)
11. (2:56)
12. (4:40)

There is no extra music on this, it is simply the OST cut into film order. Its a neat idea, but its not an expanded score by any means, not even slightly.

T-Mann0362011-08-13 07:26:03
Thanks Takehiro... I DEFINITELY needed that!

Theres an expanded score of this on sale in Europe, from a bootlegging group. Anyone got the tracklisting for it?

tim reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-16 00:00:00
having seen both versions of the movie, with both scores... Jankel may have been a replacement, but his score works better within the film; the slow character scenes and vastness of the surroundings come across better with the pink-floyd-esque music in the american release. Zimmers score just doesn't match the tone of the film itself; its too busy, sonically cluttered, and dare-I-say, small scale.

That being said I prefer the European cut of the film for the extra scenes, so c'est la vie. And Zimmer's score, I was surprised to find, works really well on the CD, if you're a fan of his sound.

It just doesn't work in K2.

Now wheres the Chaz Jankel CD?

Superb soundtrack.
Originally saw the movie in the UK with the Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Absolutely stunning.
Live in Canada now, and own the infinitely inferior North American edition of the movie with some guy called Chaz Jankel doing soundtrack duty. Completely senseless!
Hans rules!
Praying that someone with real taste and class will release the DVD with the Hans soundtrack over here!

1) The Ascent (27:40) (The longest cue ever written by Hans Zimmer)
2) The Descent (13:41)

An excellent progressive soundtrack that holds your ears bound to the speaker. The kind of soundtrack that you don't know what will you hear next. A must-hear soundtrack.
