Yesterday in Beijing, Composer Klaus Badelt just had a chat with several reporters during a break from recording the scores for director Chen Kaige’s The Promise (Wu Ji). Badelt said the scores of the film run about 120 minutes in total, which was almost as long as the film itself and the longest score was about 8 minute long. He said Chen Kaige never set any rule for his music and told him very little about the story and the characters of the film. The final work does not sound very East or West, but is added with some Chinese elements, such as using several traditional Chinese instrument in a few scores. Badelt said the music he composed for the movie was greater than what he had done for any Hollywood movie.
Producer Chen Hong just announced that selected scores of Wu Ji / The Promise, originally composed by Klaus Badelt, would be performed by Cincinnati Pops Orchestra at the Great Hall of People in Beijing October 21 - 22. The orchestra’s tour in Asia will include three stops - Beijing, Shanghai and Singapore. Reportedly, Wu Ji / The Promise will be released worldwide this December.
