It's funny how our tastes evolve, isn't it? A couple years ago, I had the audacity to call this score boring in one of the discussions here. Well, nowadays, I find it quite beautiful, I love Hans' instrumentation choices here, and it's right up there with The Last Samurai as one of my favorite Zimmer scores.
expanded score The Track List is: 1) Waters of Irrawaddy 2) Burma 3) Memory of Dead 4) Brother Morphine 5) Aung San Suu Kyi/I Dream I Woke Up 6) Our Ways Will Part 7) Village Under Siege 8) Opression 9) Beyond Rangoon 10) Aung San Suu Kyi
Truly sublime and melodious music! :) This stirring soundtrack totally stands on its own. But oh how I've craved for and expanded release for 15 years. This is such a rare and emotional masterpiece, and rightfully deserves to be more complete, so come on gentleman, its 2011...15 long years since the original release in 1995. I have seen the film a number of times, and loved the other poignant music variations! Especially the beautiful music during the raft scene when Laura Bowman tends to his wounds. And of course other lovely segments when she is traveling through Burma etc. I really Appreciate you guys reading this. I hope I'm not too unpopular for making a humble request :)
Wow! This music is straight from the heart, it deeply expresses what cannot be put into words. Why is it that so many people I have encountered over time, have not heard of this forgotten masterpiece. I am an avid soundtrack fanatic and truly appreciate quality creative music. And this unique score is one of my favorite finds of all time. Every track is moving and captivating, and after seeing the film just recently, it made me really hunger for more of the original score that unfortunately was not on the official CD release.
Greetings to whom it may concern. I am not too sure how often these posts are read. But I would just like to make a brief inquiry/request about Beyond Rangoon. Firstly, I am privileged to have the original 1995 score in my collection which is just sublime, and totally out of this world! But having seen the film a few times, I suddenly realized how much more rich, original, music is actually missing from this amazing soundtrack.
There are some other beautiful, stirring, variations from the film. And I have been yearning and hoping for an expanded more complete release of Beyond Rangoon. I am certain there are many devout Zimmer admirers out there who are just waiting and hoping for a 2010 release also. It’s seems almost sinful to leave out such lovely theme renditions from this rare PHENOMENAL score. Is this release probable?
This music has such substance and depth to it, and a beautiful variety of melancholy themes Which are utilized so well by lonely woodwind instruments and stirring vocals. It’s the most played soundtrack in my collection. The nature of this music never ceases to amaze me. It’s as though the score were from another world, other time. And so thought provoking and beautifully wistful. It defines so many elements for me and transcends the mind, I have been collecting film scores since I was 16, now aged 27 and still this score continues to captivate me like no other. It’s up there with Morricone’s the mission in my opinion. Outstanding effort Hans, if by some dark miracle you read this. I just want to say that I really appreciate the true quality of music you bring to life and the hard work you put into it. I have many of your great scores. And I hope in the future for an expanded release of Beyond Rangoon, there’s so many other great stirring pieces from the film.
This is one of the most beautiful Hans Zimmer soundtracks on the market. Even though it's a little hard to find, it's worthing every single penny. The last track it's simply magnificent. After my opinion, Zimmer is the best contemporary composer after John Williams.
