Craig Armstrong - World Trade center
Original Music from the Motion Picture Released on Sony Classical
Soundtrack Composed by Craig Armstrong
Amidst the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, there were many stories of hope and courage. 'World Trade Centre' tells the true story of two transit authority policemen who survived the devastating attacks. Directed by Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone (‘Platoon’, ‘Born on the Fourth of July’, ‘JFK’) 'World Trade Centre' is sure to strike a powerful chord with audiences.
The film shows the heroic survival and rescue of two Port Authority policemen - John McLoughlin (Nicolas Cage) and Will Jimeno (Michael Peña) - who were trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, after they went in to help people escape.
Renowned Scottish composer Craig Armstrong provided the score. Armstrong happened to be in New York on September 11th, and has composed a truly remarkable score, both poignant and emotive. Craig is one of the world’s most sought after and respected contemporary composers. A skilled and experienced writer for theatre and film, past film scores include ‘Love Actually’, ‘Romeo and Juliet’, ‘The Quiet American’ and - perhaps his most celebrated soundtrack work - ‘Moulin Rouge’ for which he won a Golden Globe award. Most recently, he provided the score for the Oscar-winning biopic ‘Ray’ for which he received a Grammy Award. Craig has won several Bafta's, two Ivor Novello awards and the American Film Institute Award for his work in film. He was recently appointed Visiting Professor of Music and Media at the Royal Academy of Music, London.
The soundtrack will be released on 18th September.
