RYUICHI SAKAMOTO MUSIC FOR FILM OST Limited 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
Each year an eminent film music composer is invited to present their work during the annual World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert closing event. As part of the celebrations, Film Fest Gent and partner Brussels Philharmonic record their music in advance of the concert. This year’s guest of honour was Ryuichi Sakamoto, at the end of October he was
the recipient of the festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Ryuichi Sakamoto's famous film music was recorded at Flagey, performed by Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by Dirk Brossé. The recordings include tracks from 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence' and 'The Revenant'.

Academy Award winner Ryuichi Sakamoto was already a celebrated rock-pop composer, pianist and singer in Japan when he conquered the international film scene in 1983 with his score for Nagisa Ôshima's 'Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrence', a film in which he also starred alongside David Bowie. Ever since, his work for leading Japanese and international directors (Bernardo Bertolucci, Brian De Palma, Pedro Almodóvar, Volker Schlöndorff) revealed him as one of the most inventive film composers of our time.

This unique compilation album was launched during the 43rd Film Fest Gent and the 16th World Soundtrack Awards on 19 October, where Sakamoto received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
