This review is from: The Last Emperor Original Soundtrack (Audio CD)
There is something quite unique about the music that forms the soundtrack to "The Last Emperor" - the combination of Western, Japanese and Chinese talent has produced a collection that bubbles with musical genius. The CD itself contains every song and piece of music used in the epic film, ranging from the main title theme itself to the chanting of the Chinese Maoist girl procession at the end of the movie. Each of the artists have contributed to build up what is perhaps one of the most stunning soundtracks of the late twentieth century. "The Last Emperor" amazed the world, and its soundtrack is a must for anyone who has seen and enjoyed the film. Chinese traditional music is hard to come by, but this sort of music is a one-time event - the melting pot of talent from East and West is truly remarkable.
