Ryuichi Sakamoto's official score store, which opened last year in December, released two new piano scores for "The Wuthering Heights", "The Sheltering Sky" and "Original Music Paper Notebook & Plain Notebook" today! Please check it out.
"The Wuthering Heights"
The theme for the 1992 movie "Wuthering Heights" (directed by Peter Kosminski), with an original score by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Available for the first time, Sakamoto completed the piano score for the official score store.
This song, very popular among fans of yesteryear, retains its beauty in the piano version, even compared with the majestic orchestral version.
"The Sheltering Sky"
The theme for the movie "The Sheltering Sky" (directed by Bernardo Bertolucci), released in 1990, for which Ryuichi Sakamoto composed an original score. It was Sakamoto's second score for Bertolucci's directed films and earned him the award for Best Original Score in the 1991 Golden Globe Awards.
It is one of Ryuichi Sakamoto's most well-known works. It has been treasured by many fans for decades, with musicians of various generations around the world sampling it and channeling it into their own works.
Various publishers have released musical scores, but this is the latest, refined version Ryuichi Sakamoto worked on for sale on this site.
"Original Music Paper Notebook & Plain Notebook"
Ryuichi Sakamoto's longtime favorite music notebook (manufactured by Onozaki Co., Ltd.) was unfortunately discontinued several years ago. His remaining personal stock has been used up.
Therefore, Sakamoto decided to create his own original staff paper notebook, paying particular attention to details such as paper quality, writing comfort, size, and binding.
We have also prepared a blank notebook that can be used freely as a memo pad to write ideas and sketches.
Both are sized to fit in an A4 clear file folder and are excellent for storage.
The binding design is by Rikako Nagashima, a friend of Sakamoto's for many years.
Please use it regularly as your standard notebook.
