Product details

Paper Planes is a family film that tells the story of a young Australian boy's passion for flight and his journey to compete in the world paper plane championships in Japan.

ABC Classics is delighted to present the original soundtrack to Paper Planes, composed by Nigel Westlake, recent winner of the 2014 ARIA Award for Best Classical Album for his powerful orchestral collaboration with Lior in Compassion (ABC 481 0678). Recorded with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and some of Australia's finest soloists in June 2014, this soundtrack captures the beauty, drama and pathos of the film: Jack's grief, Grandpa's cheekiness and the sheer joy of Dylan's new-found hobby, making paper planes.

The album also features Lior's hit song Learn to Live, which was re-recorded especially for the film and appears for the first time in its new form on this album.

Duration: 51 min.
