John Altman's The Lost Empire
MovieScore Media expands its acclaimed Discovery Collection with its fourteenth entry: the world premiere recording of The Lost Empire by John Altman, written for the 2001 Hallmark mini-series. The colorful adventure score may have been written for a television mini-series, but its rich sound, symphonic palette and great application of exotic instruments such as the erhu or Chinese flutes makes it more akin to a full-fledged feature film score. Fans of the genre will be delighted to hear echos of such composers as Maurice Jarre and Ron Goodwin in the adventurous score. From the first threat of "The Tiger" through wacky hijinks of "The Mini-Monkeys" to the Star Wars-inspired "Through the Indestructible Gates", each fantastic episode of The Lost Empire features a suitably bombastic accompaniment. These epic highlights are balanced by haunting lyrical moments that lend the story its heart ("The Devastated Village", “Goodbye to Goddess”). For more info and ordering, visit MovieScore Media.
