Program Notes

Princess Mononoke (1997) is recognized for its outstanding soundtrack. The CD Princess Mononoke recorded by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra after the film's release is also widely known. The CD arrangement follows the soundtrack and adds detailed scenes from the film with some development. Consider this arrangement a sequel to my previous Selections from Princess Mononoke as I have utilized additional songs from the soundtrack.

- Program Note by composer

Princess Mononoke is a 1997 Japanese animated epic historical fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Princess Mononoke is set in the late Muromachi period (approximately 1336 to 1573) of Japan with fantasy elements. The story follows the young Emishi prince Ashitaka's involvement in a struggle between the gods of a forest and the humans who consume its resources. The term "mononoke" is not a name, but a Japanese word for a spirit or monster: supernatural, shape-shifting beings.
