Liner Notes

Music is emotion. It reaches out to the audience and drives them to feel what the characters feel, and to be with those characters in every high and low of their journey. When done by a master like Hans Zimmer, it creates a presence all its own that can bring an audience to tears, or make them cheer in triumph. For many weeks we'd sit in Hans' man lair, a carved gothic library filled with art and musical instruments worthy of a museum, and watch him work. He and Lorne Balfe crafted something beautiful, ethnic, and epic. They make you feel the wonder of seeing pandas for the first time, and of Po getting finally fly as the Dragon Warrior. They made the world bigger, funnier, and definitely more badass. Thanks to them and we hope you enjoy.
Jen and Ale
