Buy it... if you want your epic scores to be huge, diverse, refined, and heavily melodic.

Avoid it... if the romantic lyricism inherent in Carlo Siliotto's thematic writing is too incongruous when combined with the variety of localized specialty instruments representing Kazakhstan.

Siliotto
Nomad: The Warrior: (Carlo Siliotto) The Kazakh language historical drama Nomad: The Warrior, produced by a studio in Kazakhstan, is as obscure an epic as can be found in modern days. Directed by Sergei Bodrov, Ivan Passer and Talget Temenov, the film summarizes the fantastic folkloric tales of the country's greatest fighters and uniters of the 1700's. The legendary character of Erali in Kazakhstan's culture draws an army that would bring all three of the country's hostile tribes together, with the proceedings glorified by massive production qualities in Nomad: The Warrior. One of the few reasons the film received international attention was because of a single Golden Globe nomination. That recognition came for the score by Carlo Siliotto, one of the most surprising music nominations to be announced from any major awarding body in years. The Italian composer was originally an arranger of popular Mediterranean songs until exploring his own film score composition career in the 1990's and 2000's for films of the same region. The tragedy inherent in his 1992 score for Flight of the Innocent landed Siliotto his first mainstream American scoring assignment for The Punisher in 2004. While that comic adaptation wouldn't launch Siliotto on to an immediate international scoring career, the same dramatically Mediterranean tragedy that prevails in that score would influence the primary theme for Nomad: The Warrior. The composer's skill with handling instrumentation from around the world proved vital for this project, with the sounds of regional specialty instruments augmenting his usual collaboration with The Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra. Along with the shehnai oboe, dombra lute, kobiz cello, mouth harp, and an ensemble of vocalists that includes the talents of throat singers, Siliotto would record as well with the Kazakh Kurmangazy Orchestra to capture the most authentic folk and Kazakhstani environment possible. This is the kind of attention to multicultural detail that you hear from the likes of Alberto Iglesias or Mychael Danna, and the combination of Italian lyricism with the texture of the Middle-East proves to be fascinating at every turn in Nomad: The Warrior.
