Several clips of the film are on YT. With some music. Sounds like 90's score from HZ. Too bad the directing seems to come from an age movies didn't exist...No. It’s a boys choir. S&K bros is a girl’s choirSeems like Scala & Kolacny Brothers.In what way is it "obvious", exactly, that Djawadi had more influence on that Training cue than Zimmer? It's basically just a statement of Zimmer's theme, and doesn't really sound notably "Djawadi-esque" to me in any way.Thanks for the credits update
A bit of who did what...Lorne also confirmed that he took charge of Mr.Charles, and without saying that Lorne was on the good side of Score in general, so his influence was substantially high.Hybrid confirmed that training is composed by Ramin and Hans and it is obvious that Ramin's influence is superior to that of Hans.are we expecting the score for dark phoenix to be released in a week or so, if the movie itself drops early june?Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.
I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great jobBob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is BalfeI hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes. Just a few<br>Batman Begins-The Training<br>TDK- Joker crash the party, Gordon's speech and ending<br>Inception - Time, Mr.Charles, <br>TKDR - the climb, imagine the fire and orphan<br>Interstellar-Stay, Docking, coward, mountain<br>Dunkirk - well the entire movieJustin Hurwitz I can see. I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.
Interesting news. <br><br>Geoff Zanelli is one of those composers who I’ve loved his additional music over his solo efforts, Pirates 5 excluded. I hope he gets a chance to write some great fantasy music for this, regardless if he reuses JNH’s themes or not.I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.<br><br>I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".<br><br>Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.*3 thingsSure, but there's two things to consider. <br>1). Pirates has such an iconic sound that it'd be really stupid for them to suddenly abandon it at #5. Especially when we hired the guy who has worked on the previous 4. 2). Maleficent, as successful as it was to warrant a sequel, isn't quite as well known in the score department, despite being well received by those who have heard it. 3). Because Zanelli worked on all Pirates, he had enough familiarity with the sounds and motifs that he knew where to go once he led the ship. In Maleficent's case, he's taking over from a previous composer, and is working with a director who likely only knows his work on POTC5. As such, there's no knowing yet if he might be compelled to continue on from JNH, or if it's decided he just does his own thing.<br><br>I'm happy that Geoff at the very least has a safe career at Disney, considering two of their recent live action successes has had him involved. However, considering I hear his recently work hasn't been his best, JNH likely would've benefited from returning to a world that had some of his best material after he wasn't given the opportunity to do so with Glass. As such, it really is a severely missed opportunity, even if newer blood is getting more opportunities.

I'm curious, who do you think mostly wrote 'Tai Lung Escapes'?

I've always loved that track, and always felt that it was mostly a John Powell cue, although that very dark first part could easily be Hans' work. I could also see it being a Henry Jackman cue though... I don't know. :p


Edmund Meinerts2018-07-18 18:47:01
I'm pretty sure that the majority of it is Henry Jackman (maybe with a bit of Hans). I don't get much of a Powell vibe off that particular cue at all.


NB2018-07-18 20:09:44
Yeah, you're probably right.

I guess I thought of it as a Powell cue mostly because between the two main composers, it matched more with his style than Hans', but yeah it's probably Jackman's stuff.

Either way, I love that track.


NB2018-07-19 15:20:17
Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior.
I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.

But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting.

Hans Zimmer or John Powell, or anyone for that matter, where can i find the entire original parts/ score for Sacred Pool of Tears? I would be gladly willing to pay for this entire original sheet music as it is truly a masterpiece. It would be used for personal use and enjoyment, so anybody, can you please help me?
Thank You So Very Much!!!

what cues make up sacred pool of tears?

"Oogway Ascends" is one of the most beautiful pieces of Mr. Zimmer... Nice Violin solo


Alexis2012-12-21 20:09:48
It's not a violin, it's an erhu, a chinese violin.





Lucien2013-10-27 08:30:45
Yeah. It is an Erhu.

Question: how correct are the automatic CD credits?

In order:

1. Hans Zimmer
2. John Powell
3. John Powell
4. Hans Zimmer
5. Hans Zimmer
6. Hans Zimmer
7. Hans Zimmer
8. Hans Zimmer
9. Hans Zimmer
10. John Powell
11. John Powell
12. Hans Zimmer
13. Hans Zimmer
14. John Powell
15. Hans Zimmer
16. John Powell

This strikes me as way off. The score sounds much more Powellish than Zimmerish as a whole, and I have a very difficult time believing Oogway Ascends is Powell... :P


Zimson2013-08-01 10:34:25
Wrong! :D
Panda Po is by Powell and Oogway Ascends by Zimmer. Sebastian Wulff was one the arrangers from the score and he uploaded some sheets on which the composers are credited. But you got Sacred Pool of Tears right.
sebastianwolff.info/news/category/music/sheet-music/page/8/
I mostly agree on the rest with you


Zimson2013-08-01 10:37:19
And Dragonwarrior rises is by both composers I think. The same theme is used in Oogway ascends


Anonymous2013-08-01 15:27:48
Never said I thought these were the correct answers, so I didn't get anything wrong--I just said this was what the CD gave. ;)


Mike2013-08-01 15:37:17
If anything, I would assume this is mostly Powell and some Zimmer. Zimmer said himself in one interview that he lets Powell take the lead with Kung Fu Panda.

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-07-17 00:04:04
The only tracks I can really discern as Zimmer are "Tai Lung Escapes", "Peach Tree of Wisdom", and "Oogway Ascends". The rest sounds like Powell, with the exception of "Hero", "Panda Po", and "Sacred Pool of Tears", which sounds like both of them.

I love the music from Kung fu panda!!!!!! :)

Sad Fan reply Replies: 2 || 2012-01-12 02:30:12
I would appreciate it if in the future all of the Kung Fu Panda soundtracks actually included ALL the music from the movie.

I am greatly disappointed in the fact that I paid for something and realistically only got half of it.

Same with the Kung Fu Panda 2 Soundtrack.

Where is all the music?
It's a soundtrack, you're supposed to put all the music on it.

Is there any chance we could get the music that is missing from the soundtracks?


Mycroft2012-01-12 03:15:56
No. If you seek the music that's missing off of a soundtrack by RCP, you'd have better luck seeking out the Holy Grail.

I like what you say though: "It's a soundtrack, you're supposed to put all the music on it. " RCP needs to hear that!

Such beautiful compositions capturing the eastern flavors! I truly love the works of Hans Zimmer as well as the famous works of John Powell! I was hoping to get into contact with someone for usage of some of the songs in this album. The reason I'm asking is because I'm working on a game (free-time) and I was wondering if I could have some kind of usage of the songs. my contact information is KyoteX@live.com. Once again I really appreciate your works and I look forward to listening to more soundtracks from the second Kung Fu Panda!
