Princess Mononoke: Symphonic Suite

Vinyl LP

In 1998, a whole year after Princess Mononoke, the Studio Ghibli film directed by Hayao Miyazaki, was released, composer Joe Hisaishi decided to revisit the soundtrack he’d written. The time, he reimagined the score as a symphonic suite and performed and recorded it with the Czech philharmonic orchestra. Hisaishi scored the majority of Miyazaki’s films.
