2 Beautiful Themes From Ryuichi Sakamoto's Score For "The Last Emperor" (1987) (video)


Although credited to three composers, including Talking Heads' David Byrne...

...arguably the best parts of the Oscar-winning score for "The Last Emperor"...

...were composed by Japanese music superstar Ryuichi Sakamoto.

His brilliant work is demonstrated by these two selections from the film...

...entitled "The First Coronation" and "Open The Door."

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
