Gladiator – music from the film

Music from the successful hit film directed by Ridley Scott. The Roman general Maximus (Russel Crowe) has again led his legions to victory on the battlefield. The war is won and now Maximus dreams of home. He wishes no more than to return to his wife and son. Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the heir to the throne, is jealous of the emperor's patronage of Maximus and orders the execution of Maximus and his family. However although Maximus escapes death by the skin of his teeth, he is heavily wounded and “saved” by slave traders. The path which leads to the fulfilment of Maximus's revenge is to become the greatest hero of the entire empire. This absorbing story, accompanied by dramatic music gains a new dimension thanks to its linkage with the water element and projection onto the water wall. Hans Zimmer, Lisa Gerrard and Klaus Badelt joined forces in creating the music for this film, whilst Enya lent her voice.
