Very much looking forward to seeing the film, and hearing the score. I'm a big fan of Haruki Murakami's books ("Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" is my personal favorite, neck-and-neck with "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle"), and Greenwood is an excellent match with the material.

For those who have been balking at the import price, it looks like there were be a European and US release of the score also with different artwork and probably improved liner notes.


I just ordered a copy from yesasia.com for a very reasonable price.

SAE also dicounted it.

Anyway, it seems that the EU/US release is going to be a digipack... hopefully it won't be the same IDIOTIC packaging There will be blood has.
In that case i would definitely prefer japanese release (can anyone confirm that is a standard jewel case?).

Ever since I saw "There Will Be Blood" I have an interest in Jonny Greenwood. Today I was listening to his score for "Norwegian Wood" and I am loving it a lot. His compositions are very powerful and emotional, but also to be appreciated on a more intellectual level. It is also remarkable how well Greenwood's score and the CAN songs work together. He is a really talented composer and it is great to see him continuing to work in cinema.
The album mentions both the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Emperor Quartet as performers and also states that Jonny Greenwood himself performed additional music. I was wondering if anyone knows the breakdown of who performed which tracks. In most cases I can distinquish between the orchestra and quartet quite well, but I can't seem to find a definitive breakdown anywhere. The last track is puzzling me for example. Also, did Jonny Greenwood perform the guitar pieces himself?

Any help would be appreciated.

Finally saw this film. Beautifully lit and filmed, although I got somewhat exasperated with the angst of the youthful characters because of their seeming callowness. And because it kind of glamorizes suicide. Greenwood's score definitely added depth to the drama. I think this film will work better for me if I see it a second time - I felt uninvolved for much of it until it all started adding up by the end.

I don't have the soundtrack album, so could someone who does please tell me the title of the track which contains the music which starts about an hour into the film right after Naoko tries to explain her feelings to Toru during their early morning walk? Thank you in advance. smile
