There are the pictures. There's the text. And then there's the music, which accompanies, flies, reveals emotions, never becomes superfluous and never sentimentalizes the simple, poignant tale told by Yann Arthus-Bertrand's movie.
Armand Amar made several journeys to record with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra and the Shanghai Percussion Ensemble. He wove into his score chants and instruments from several continents (Mongolia, Armenia, Iran, etc). The score tells one part of the story, the pictures another and the dialogue speaks yet another language, but it all must combine in a symphony, a harmony.
