    Listen to Krzesimir Dębski´s theme for Heleny (Ogniem i Mieczem):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jvLDXHT9eg

    I cannot imagine anyone not liking this. At the time of release, I was humming the melody for weeks.
  1. Helena. "Temat Heleny" means "Helena's Theme". As Polish has declension, the "Heleny" form is vocative smile .

    Thanks for that Pawel.

    Another great piece (Voyage to Avalon - Kenji Kawai, featuring soprano Elżbieta Towarnicka)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcRwiI6X3ZM

    Avalon is top 10 material really. Both the film and its score are a great mixture of Japanese/Polish/(Eastern) European influences.

    I hope to revise a review originally written for another, no longer available, website soon.
  2. I don't know what got in my mind, that I said it's vocative! It's genitive!

    Anyway, PM me if you need some language and/or historical help.

    I will do that. The problem is I want to master a lot of languages, which makes me a very slow learner.

  3. Very disappointed that first one isn't a biopic of the great Korean musical genius.
  4. He'd be 13 years old at the time when the film came out. Would make a brilliant biopic.

    Is Kenji Kawai Polish now? wink
    I am extremely serious.
  5. It was a Japanese-Polish co-production, filmed in Poland with Polish actors. The score was recorded in Poland with Polish musicians with choir singing in Polish. So there wink

    Thor, have you heard it? I suspect you are going to love the synths.

    Contradictio in terminis... It's mesmerizing how a portion of these 'outdated' synths - the programming, the samples - have not lost its purpose in this hybrid score.

    Listened to the album on Youtube (it's not on Spotify). Pretty good stuff, you're right that it's up my alley!

    I would love to hear other peoples favorites. Even review request and recommendations are more than welcome. I still have around a 100 reviews, desperately in need for revision. It feels like I barely scratched the surface.

  6. I'm becoming more and more surprised at my ignorance of Kilar's output as you continue this series. The man score many more movies than I was aware of.

    Strangely, I kind of feel the same. I should be very happy to have experienced around 90 of his works in context, but it feels like I barely scratched the surface.


    Listen to Misericordia:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8QlGdTHh1Y


    The end of the film provides for a new composition called Misericordia. The piece is sung in Latin by a mixed eight-part choir and accompanied by the string section and piano. It truly is rewarding hearing such a great meditative piece to conclude the score, a worthy tribute to the sainted Faustyna.
