Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present the premiere vinyl edition of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s classic score for 1992 adaptation of Emily Bronte’s WUTHERING HEIGHTS, starring Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche, and directed by Peter Kosminsky.
Ryuichi Sakamoto (1952–2023) was one of the most personal and important voices of the world music scene for several decades: from rock to pop, new age, opera, concert music, electronic and film music, no genre was foreign to him, and he managed to stamp his own style on each of them. His acclaimed score for WUTHERING HEIGHTS is written in the symphonic tradition of his scores for Bernardo Bertolucci’s THE LAST EMPEROR (for which he won the Oscar for Best Original Score) and LITTLE BUDDHA. One of Sakomoto’s most special and beloved scores, WUTHERING HEIGHTS is haunting, beautiful, romantic and tragic.
Specially mastered for vinyl by Chris Malone from original stereo master tapes and following the order of the original album produced by Sakamoto, the album is presented on 2XLP 180 GM clear transparent vinyl, in an elegant gatefold with images of the film.
