My special thanks to Mr. Nick Glennie-Smith who wrote & arranged a couple of brilliant cues for this film, which through no fault of his own have been omitted from this record (but he got to play the Hammond, so he's happy, I hope). Mr. Richard Harvey somehow found time in his busy schedule to perform the more ethnic sounding instruments on this score. Those very loud drums are the creation of the very fabulous Mr. Grahama Ward. The solo cello was performed by Mr. Anthony Pleeth, the solo viola by Mr. David Emanuell. My greatest pleasure throughout the recording of this score was the chance to work with Mr. Pete Haycock again, truly one of the finest guitarists I know.
I'd like to thank Sam Schwartz & Mike Gorfaine, Bob & Harvey Weinstein, Franc Roddam, Karina Cooper, Emma Burnham, Andrew Stirling, Steve Pain, Tonia Daval, Nicole Jacobs For Zoe Zimmer

can someone actually tell me who plays the guitar in the K2 movie ? I have the soundtrack from the movie and its not there ? it would be nice to know I had the move for over 15years ! someone said its E Van Halen huh ?
Click on "See details..." and you'll find all you need ! :)
I mean no disrespect to Hans Zimmer in any way But why ? WHY ! 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 ?
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 :)
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.
track on expanded score 1. main title 2. the team 3. family 4. packistan / k2 5. brotherhood 6. climb high 7. portents of doom 8. denali 9. two friends 10. death zone 11. touching the void 12. save / end title
I wish the 12 tracks are leaked. Thanks for sharing just 007.
I think its the OST cut into tracks with possibly the end credits added from DVD.
Is it possible if you could separate them by length of time on each of the 12 tracks?
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.
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!
