"I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to compose a musical score for Rob Marshall's film, Memoirs of a Geisha. For years I've admired Arthur Golden's remarkable book and it has been a wish come true to collaborate with my friends Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman on this extraordinary film."
"It is rare that you have the opportunity to work with so many people you admire on one project. John Williams sent me a copy of Arthur Golden's extraordinary book when it was first released and I have been a fan ever since. Working with John Williams and Itzhak Perlman on John's poetic and mysterious score for Rob Marshall's film Memoirs of a Geisha was a dream come true."
"As with all of John Williams' film scores, his music for Geisha is in sync with the contents of the film to such an extent that you cannot have one without the other."
