Working for the first time with Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love), we are excited to announce our release of his sweeping, dramatic and exquisitely beautiful orchestral score for Princess Ka'iulani, a historical drama about the Hawaiian princess attempt to maintain the independence of Hawaii against the American colonization.

We strongly feel that Ka'iulani might be Warbeck's finest score to date: it's a very elegant, beautifully orchestrated work that has great themes, intimate emotions and subtle suspense writing too. Fittingly, the music is performed by the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra which is doing a first-rate job bringing Warbeck's passionate writing to life.

Implementing a new policy with this release and hoping to contribute to a new industry standard, MovieScore Media will denote the number of the manufactured edition on the CD. The first edition of Princess Ka’iulani is limited to 500 copies.
