Zbigniew Preisner's Aglaja
1-Dec-2013 - From Quartet Records comes the world premiere release of Zbigniew Preisner's most recent score: Aglaja. The film is about the relationship of a mother and her daughter, the split-up of their family, the blessing and curse of belonging together and about coming of age – all from the perspective of the young girl Aglaja. The story is based on real-life events – an Eastern-European family of circus artists that fled to the West. If they want to stay in the circus business they have to make up an exotic act. The mother spends all their money to buy a very dangerous act: hanging by her hair high up in the dome of the circus while juggling burning torches. Preisner has written an emotional and introspective score, dominated by an instrumental ensemble common to many of the composer’s works: flute, piano, bass and acoustic guitar.
