James Newton Howard's Music From The Hunger Games Saga
23-May-2016 - Silva Screen Records presents Music From The Hunger Games Saga. Performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic and composed by James Newton-Howard, the compilation gives an organic overview of the understated yet lush soundtrack to the dystopian world of Panem. The cut-throat action makes up a large part of the story, yet Howard achieves something singular here by producing an admirably restrained score. From the haunting and rustic melody of The Hunger Games theme, and spine-tingling centrepiece The Hanging Tree, to the wonderful Air Raid Drill driven by throbbing string ostinatos and soaring voices and ironic and non-triumphant Victory, this is a score that utilises strings, guitar, dobro, choirs and solo voices to create a singular sound world in counterpoint to images.
