man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.
Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scoresThis score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.
I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.

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!

Anthony have you not a end? It's hard understand you ... You're not to understand music (I have all cd by Zimmer and Powell and I know the two different style) don't write anymore please.

No name It seems like action parts were written by Powell and "non-action" by Zimmer. Great score by the way (and great theme - I think it`s composed by Zimmer, too). )
You're understand perfect!!!
