This sensational soundtrack caputures the essence of the emotional conflict of Kundun, the protagonist, and cultural/religious burdens bestowed upon him. Simultaenously heavy and rich with cellos, violins, horns and pocessional clashing cymbals, Glass characteristically dilutes the murmering weight with peircing melancholic, yet optimistic, solo flutes. The contrast is magical. "Move to Dungkar" evokes pensive reflection with a glimmer of hope. The epic "Escape to India" is a soundtrack in itself. Lethargic energy. Kundun is ideal for those moody solitary moments where one does not wish to be disturbed. Inspirational.
this is one of the most remakable soundtracks ever written. The whole feel and style of the piece places the listener firmly in an alternative world:that of mystical Tibet. I am a teacher and have used this often with English high school pupils . They appear to be a profoundly moved as I am.
