All three of the scores were composed by longtime Ghibli collaborator Joe Hisaishi, including his first work with the animation house for Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind.

Hisaishi is one of Japan’s most prolific and celebrated composers, creating over 100 film scores and albums to date, including every Hayao Miyazaki animation since they first crossed paths, with the exception of Whisper of the Heart, which Miyazaki didn’t direct.

The box set’s 10-tracks have been remastered from the original tapes, with replica cover artwork.

It follows the reissue of nine Studio Ghibli image albums in 2018.
