REVIEW

Scans, info and review courtesy of Jurgen Himmelmann

"Under Aurora" is a Russian/Japanese co-production: the story is settled in East Siberia around 1912. A description of the story you will find here: http://www.pymmik.com/Aurora.html

The music is composed by Reijiro Koroku, better known for his Godzilla 1984 (230A 7022, TYCY-5360, G-016) score. "Pod severnym siyaniyem" (the Russian movie title) is a rich, symphonic work with beautiful, epic themes. The last track is a Russian choral. Now this CD is very rare and even in Japan nearly impossible to find. The music was released by the same label of the first 20-Godzilla-CD-series: Toshiba EMI / Futureland. The booklet contains some black/white photos and a text written in Japanese only.This score can be recommended to everyone who likes beautiful symphonic music.
