Klaus Badelt's Rescue Dawn
27-Jul-2007 - Milan Records has released the score for director Werner Herzog's movie Rescue Dawn. It recounts the true story of German-born Dieter Dengler (Christian Bale), who dreamed of flying. After making his way to the United States, he joined the Navy during the Vietnam War and became a pilot. He was shot down over Laos and captured, but eventually organized a daring escape with a small band of captives. The orchestral score is by Klaus Badelt. In describing the music to the film, Variety states, "[A]part from Klaus Badelt's keening original score, featuring mournful cellos and piano tones, music used includes Wagnerian opera and other classical compositions."
