World premiere release of original soundtrack from Michael Lessac psychological drama with Kathleen Turner, Tommy Lee Jones. Initial setting amidst ancient Mayan ruins plus subsequent drama of withdrawn child using surreal images to communicate inspires James Horner to create incredibly tender main theme, then surround with increasingly involved music as drama unfolds. Full compliment of strings with piano plus other keyboards provides basis of orchestra. Horner also infuses music with haunting sound of pan flutes as bridge between two worlds reflected in story. This is beautiful music, sometimes gently transparent, other times dramatic and complex! Horner and his customary engineer Simon Rhodes expertly produce album for Intrada with emphasis on musical coherency, courtesy several lengthy cues and flawless original digital stereo master elements. James Horner conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 1500 copies!
Composed and Conducted by James Horner.
