Stuart Hancock's The Desert Treasure
10-Aug-2014 - MovieScore Media and Kronos Records have released The Desert Treasure. The proud Gulf state of Qatar boasts an enviable catalogue of documentary films commissioned to capture and celebrate the many aspects of its culture and natural history. These movies combine ravishing visuals with equally colourful soundtracks – including these four sumptuous original scores from composer Stuart Hancock. Alongside suites of highlights from Qatar Dream 2030, Written In The Sand and Birdlife of Qatar, they present Hancock’s elegant complete score for The Desert Treasure, which has garnered two major international awards. Performed by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, the scores are a rich blend of lyrical symphonic western orchestration, Persian instrumentation and contemporary electronics that reflect the grace, mystery, nobility and vibrant colours of this flourishing nation.
