Symphonic score for Miyazaki's groundbreaking animated masterpiece. Legendary Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi set the tone for the epic 1984 animated film with sweeping arrangements and touching melodies that perfectly soundtrack Nausicaa's quest to save the valley from a polluted, post-apocalyptic world. This symphonic suite reimagines the original score with the full sound of the T.J.C. Orchestra, originally released on vinyl in 1984 and out of print ever since. This limited edition Japan import reissue comes complete with obi strip, full color gatefold sleeve, double-sided foldout insert with illustrations and liner notes and alternate cover artwork by director Hayao Miyazaki. Recommended.
