Joe Hisaishi
Howl’s Moving Castle (Soundtrack)

The soundtrack to Studio Ghibli's wonderful adaptation of Diana Wynne Jones's 'Howl's Moving Castle'. Who else but Joe Hisaishi could capture the magic and the whimsy of an actual moving castle? Of course, as with most of their films, there's more to it than that, director Hayao Miyazaki has said this film was partly influenced by his opposition to the 2003 Iraq war.

Howl’s Moving Castle (Image Symphonic Suite)

This one is for Studio Ghibli's 'Howl's Moving Castle', one of their strangest and most endearing works, whose cast features a scarecrow and a very nice dog. As you might expect Joe Hisaishi is on soundtrack duties, his compositions as key to the film's magical mood as any other component.
