Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - Original Soundtrack
Superb! As with the movie, an outstanding example of composition and storytelling, this time by composer Tan Dun. The music themes flow from romance, to battle, to mournfulness, to beautiful love song, all interwoven in a haunting, oriental style. The precision and depth of sound by the orchestra and Yo-Yo Ma are wonderful; The percussion section deserves special praise for delivering sounds you'll hear nowhere else. You'll find yourself listening to this masterpiece over and over again. A 2001 Grammy winner, this soundtrack is a must for anyone's collection.
One of my FAVOURITE soundtracks, like, ever!!
I actually can't believe that I just got around to buying this - it's like I just realized I could. I first saw this movie when I was about 8, but I still cry every time at the end. The music is so powerful and fits the raw emotion in the film very well. The song Farewell never fails to make me cry! Very powerful music, totally worth the money if you ask me!!
When I saw this movie, I was stunned. Not only of the fighting and acting, but of how they were able to re-create ancient China. This music brings out the Chinese tradition and sounds awsome! Great songs!
