Valhalla (Original Score)

Ron Goodwin

In December 1985 composer Ron Goodwin attended his very last film scoring session.
It was at Easy Sound Studio in Copenhagen, and the film his music was recorded for, was an ambitious Danish animated feature called “Valhalla”, based on Peter Madsen’s comics of the same name.

At the time of it’s release in 1986, “Valhalla” had become the most expensive film in Danish film history, and the 4 years of production chaos had taken it’s toll on the many devoted crew members, who had worked tirelessly to see the film come to life.

Now, some 30 years later, the film remains a classic in Denmark, and part of reason for it’s continued success is due to the wonderful symphonic score by legendary English composer Ron Goodwin.

Originally Danish composers Bent Hesselmann and Jussi Adler Olsen (now a famous author) were assigned with scoring the film and part of their music was incorporated into the score by Ron Goodwin.

After “Valhalla”, Ron Goodwin gave up film scoring, and focused on conducting instead. He remained active until the days before his death in January 2003.

PlantSounds are extremely proud to present this Anniversary release of the music from “Valhalla”, which includes:
* The score, as presented on earlier releases by Replay and Label X, but remastered for vinyl by Audioplanet for this release.
* 180 gram vinyl
* Extensive liner notes containing an in depth look at Valhalla, and the music. Written by Brian Iskov.

We hope you will join us in making this wonderful project happen.

PlantSounds is a Danish label (est.: 2013) primarily releasing Danish film music.
Why? Because there is so much wonderful music being written by Danish composers, and for Danish film, that we felt this music needed to be available!

Founded by film composers Halfdan E and Jesper Hansen, this is a common dream we both shared for years, and we love the journey we are on!
