Zbigniew Preisner's The Beautiful Country
30-Sep-2005 - Mellowdrama Records presents the forthcoming soundtrack album of The Beautiful Country. The film tells the harrowing story of a young, half-caste refugee's escape from impoverishment and servitude in Viet Nam. This is the second successful collaboration between composer Zbigniew Preisner and director Hans Petter Moland, following their previous experience on Aberdeen (2000). It is to the musical territory of this film that Preisner returns, with similar orchestrations and a distinct harmonic language deftly tackling continued themes of abandonment, loss, and reunion. Recorded in Warsaw, in 2003, the composer's uplifting music is performed by the Orkiestra Radiowas under the baton of Michal Nalecz Nieziolowski. Buy from First Contact Records.
