Christian was wrong. There was a list of performers of the orchestra and choir besides some thanking notes of the composers.

Besides I don't undestrand the hate about this score, it's a enjoyable fully orchestral and choral soundtrack (much more better than MV crap like
Transformers) and one of my favorites scores of 2009.

There some people who said that David Arnold was better but Harald Kloser's music from The Day After Tomorrow made me want to be a soundtrack fan.
And being Kloser the co-writer and producer of 2012 and being at the same time a film composer, makes him the right one to score 2012.

And the CD doesn't have the best parts of the music in the movie. Like the music of L.A. Earthquake, Yellowstone blowing up. Anhauser speaking
with Adrian about President's daughter (There was use of comic pizzicato strings), the Hawaii scene and the whole ending sequence.
