    Does anyone have information about the score that is played in Reflections of China right before the film starts?

    Thanks.

    Great Question! I have been wondering about this also. I guess you could call it an exit/preshow loop; because it plays while one set of guests exits and another set is entering.

    I'm assuming several people on here read music, so this might help identify what I assume Horizons is talking about. The most striking part of this loop is the Triplet Theme that is introduced by the strings and repeated in a few spots by the french horns.

    Does anyone else know this music?

    I believe the entrance/exit music is an original piece by the composer of the score for the film itself -- unfortunately, I haven't had any luck finding out who that is. Ages ago Randy Thornton indicated that this music had a good chance of appearing on a future official album. Let's hope so!

    According to IMDB, the new score was composed by Richard Bellis. It also uses some of the old cues composed by Buddy Baker and Du Ming-Xin.
