Silva America brings the score of a new game from Sony Entertainment "PRIMAL", taking the listener to new heights within the realm of demonic characters as we combat and explore the unknown. Composers Bob & Barn (Andrew Barnabas & Paul Arnold) gave the baton to Nic Raine, who orchestrated & conducted the City of Prague Philharmonic along with a magnificent chorus and concert Master Bohumil Kotmel. The haunting solos of soprano Michaela Srumore, the violin of Bohumil Kotmel, the alto flute of Pavel Becherovka and Jaraslava Eliasova on piano, celeste and harpsichord add even a more brilliant and breathtaking extravaganza in film music. One almost feels you're sitting in a Concert Hall or Large Theater watching a dark classical piece unfold with every musician, chorus and soloist taking you by the hand on a journey through mysterious and bold adventures that keeps you on the edge. Gothic themes "ARELLA'S THEME", with each counterpart as the chorus blends their voices drifting into the universe ~ "RAUM & EMPUSA", gives the orchestra a work out, chorus seems bent challenging every section in the Philharmonic, brass and chorus join weaving a spell over the listener that is majestic.
Hats off to James Fitzpatrick, Reynold da Silva, Bob & Barn for putting together this project for all the "film-score-buff" fans. This is much better than I expected ~ it will proudly sit on my collectible film score section in entertainment surround sound room, gotta love it!
