Hisaishi, Joe - Hisaishi / Miyazaki / Kitano CD
MILAN MUSIC is pleased to release the compilation: HISAISHI / MIYAZAKI / KITANO
“This album presents the most distinguished scores by Joe Hisaishi for Hayao MIYAZAKI, the master of Japanese cartoons and for Takeshi KITANO, the mythical director-author of modern Japanese cinema. Happy listening, enjoy!” - Emmanuel Chamboredon
Two icons of Japanese cinema, Miyazaki and Kitano, always had a clear idea of the role music should play in their films. Joe Hisaishi composes for any genres but he always keeps his own identity and his own style. He completes the narrative of these two directors with melodies that stick in the mind long after the film is watched.
From the refined theme of Silent Love (A Scene by the Sea) and the sweet melody on the piano of Pure White (Dolls) to the majestic orchestrations of The Dragon Boy (Chihiro's Journey), not to forget the "jazzy" Brother, this compilation offers a glimpse into the Japanese composer's genius and diversity.
