  1. There's not a lot of fans of WAR AND PEACE here. I quite like a lot of it, though it can get a little turgid at times. Lovely main theme, and some good battle music from Kaczmarek.

    For me, it's certainly Kaczmarek's battle music that sticks in the mind with this score.

    Oooh!

    Passchendaele is in Belgium. It was about time there was a movie about this horrible battle during WWI. Nice too see his name attached, although I'd like to have seen Danna!

    Normally i'd prefer Kaczmarek but yeah, after his disappointing last couple of years i'd take Danna as well.

    Yes, "Evening". I was there when it was recorded. It was like dream come true. You know. To see composer recording his music, and see his reaction when he hear it for the first time. I was lucky to be there and talk to Jan and film director Lajos Koltaij. And of course to see Leszek Mozdzer playing all these variations... That was impressive. Leszek is truely a master of piano smile


    A very late reaction, but that must have been something to remember for a long time. I know some people who where present during several recordings of a Preisner score and were highly impressed by Mozdzer playing, even if it were just a few simple notes. I could imagine how magical that must have been, being there.

    JAN A.P. KACZMAREK scores "GET LOW"

    Polish composer Jan A.P.Kaczmarek, whose scores have mostly gone from brilliant (in the near past) to semi-interesting rides, is into yet another US assignment, and we're all hoping for a soon to come inspirational musical resurrection.

    As Mikael Carlsson's moviescoremagazine has been reporting, the composer has written the original score for Get Low, a drama from director Aaron Schneider (Two Soldiers) which will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

    I think it's different. Hachi is almost solo album of Mozdzer and Szpakiewicz (piano and cello players). On "Get Low" are more instruments, more orchestral (subtle and delicate though) music... It's independent project, none of the big companys doesn't have right to the music (yet), so we kindly asked the director also to release the soundtrack. We'll see what could be done...

    Limited Edition of 1000 copies.

    Music Composed by Jan A.P. Kaczmarek

    Polish composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek has created a powerful, beautiful and dramatic score for the Canadian film Passchendaele. Newly released on DVD and Blu-Ray, Kaczmarek's stunning score at last comes to CD in this special limited edition!

    Set during the height of the First World War, Passchendaele tells the story of Sergeant Michael Dunne (Paul Gross), a Canadian soldier who is brutally wounded in France and returns home emotionally and physically scarred. While in the military hospital in Calgary, he meets Sarah (Caroline Dhavernas), a mysterious and attractive nurse for whom he develops a passionate love. When Sarah's younger, asthmatic brother, David (Joe Dinicol), signs up to fight in Europe, Michael feels compelled to return to Europe to protect him. Michael and David, like thousands of Canadians, are sent to fight in the third battle of Ypres, a battle against impossible odds, commonly known as "Passchendaele." It is a story of passion, courage and dedication, showing the heroism of those that fought in battle, and of the ones that loved them.

    It's an average score for a pretty awful film. Paul Gross tried to pull a Titanic and set a love story around a major historical event. The writing is God awful. However, the bookend action sequences are well done especially the open sequence which actually happened to Paul Gross's grandfather.

    GET LOW

    Robert Duvall
    Sissy Spacek
    Bill Murray
    Lucas Black

    Get Low is inspired by the true story of Felix “Bush” Breazeale, who attracted national attention and the largest crowd to assemble up to that date when he threw himself a living funeral party in 1938 in Roane County, Tennessee.

    For years, townsfolk have been terrified of the backwoods recluse known as Felix Bush (Robert Duvall). People say he’s done all manner of unspeakable things, and they avoid him like the plague. Then, one day, Felix rides to town with a shotgun and a wad of cash, saying he wants to buy a living funeral, in which anyone who ever had heard a story about him will come to tell it, while he takes it all in.

    Sensing a big payday in the offing, fast-talking funeral home owner Frank Quinn (Bill Murray) enlists his gentlemanly young apprentice, Buddy Robinson (Lucas Black), who discovers that behind Felix’s surreal plan lies a very real and long-held secret that must get out. As the funeral approaches, the mystery — which involves the widow Mattie Darrow (Sissy Spacek), the only person in town who ever got close to Felix, and the Illinois preacher Charlie Jackson (Bill Cobbs), who refuses to speak at his former friend‘s funeral — only deepens. But on the big day, Felix is the one who is going to do the telling about why he has been hiding out in the woods.

    Employing a string quartet accompanied by piano, the score by Acadamy Award-winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek (Finding Neverland) suggests a sense of mystery and anticipation, eventually swelling to a full orchestral setting.

    Sony Pictures Classics’ Get Low was met with great acclaim when it began its rollout on July 30.

    I can't wait to listen to GET LOW.

    Right now I'm enjoying Leonie , a great score, one of my favorite from this year. A lot of piano, very beautiful and innocent kind of feel. There are two themes which are both beautiful and you can hear them both in the cue Isamu's Birth, one at the beginning and the other and the end of the cue. The later theme is fully heard in the cue Sapporo Park and then we can hear a solo violin, this is beautiful music.

    The cue Isamu's Birth is a very strong candidate for my favorite cue of the year!

    I think this is his best score since Bliss, for fans of the composer this is a must.
