Playful and yet epically moving.
I love the way it starts slow and sad, really emphasising the feeling of loss, but very quickly builds into a very playful gesture and suddenly erupts into a magical and epic brilliance. The sense of freedom and flight cannot be mistaken. Then it slowly returns to the sadness, completing the circle and ending the piece quite well.
The sad beginning with the heavy layering of strings really touches on Zimmer's style, and when the playfulness comes in, it reminds me of Desplat's Golden Compass track "Lyra, Roger and Billy". The epic section had me reminiscing Horner's Braveheart, especially with the traditional Celtic sounding instruments.
All in all, a wonderfully composed piece.
