I was delighted with the first season of the Netflix original series ‘The Dragon Prince’ it enriched the magic of adventure, dragons and magical creatures. I am delighted that Lakeshore Records has released season one and season two soundtracks with original music from Frederik Wiedmann. The Dragon Prince is produced by Wonderstorm and I binged season one back in September. I immediately wanted to hear the music and was on tinder hooks for season 2 (which I binged over the weekend). The series is an utter delight with the diverse characters, important message of respect of life, respect for others, and intellectual curiosity.
“The Dragon Prince provides a wonderful canvas for me to explore a very colorful musical pallet. We wanted to give this world its own identity, so we decided to blend various ethnic and unorthodox instruments with a conventional orchestral sound. The use of a variety of live instruments was key to this, so we spent a great deal of time recording soloists all across the series, and for some parts we recorded a 40 Piece string orchestra for important scenes that needed it. It’s been an absolute privilege to get to work on a series such as The Dragon Prince, a show so full of heart, imagination and excitement”. – Frederik Wiedmann
Lakeshore Records will release The Dragon Prince Season 1 and Season 2 Original Series Soundtrack digitally on February 22 for fans of all ages.
You may not know the Emmy-award winning Frederik Wiedmann but he is a composer you’ve ‘heard’ of before. His work as an artist delights the ear as it enriches movies and tv series.
