Zbigniew Preisner's Un Secret/Menachem & Fred
2-Dec-2013 - Quartet Records comes with the world premiere release of two complete and previously unreleased scores by Zbigniew Preisner, together on one CD. The first one is Un Secret. Based on a true story, the film is set in 1953, when a sensitive French boy finds out from a neighbor that his family is Jewish. Preisner wrote for this film a nostalgic and romantic score – dominated by piano, flute, strings and children’s chorus – performed by the Chamber Orchestra of Tychy and the Libera Boy’s Chorus. The second one on this CD is the score for Menachem & Fred, a documentary about the reunion of two German Jewish brothers who took vastly different directions at the end of WWII. The composer offers his usual musical sensitivity to reflect the psychology and mood of the characters. Scored for piano, violin, clarinet, harp and cello, the music is performed by The Cracovian Music Hall Ensemble and features the voice of Ewa Ochawt.
