After Andrzej Wajda and Roman Polański, three-time Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland is this year’s Honorary guest of the Krakow Film Music Festival‘s Scoring4Polish Directors concert series. Because Holland has some good taste in music, the lineup of guests is made of a gifted roster of film music composers.
We get Zbigniew Preisner (yes, the ‘Dekalog‘ guy!) with main themes to two of his collaborations with Holland, Europa Europa (1990) and The Secret Garden (1993).
The suite format will also be at work for Jan A.P. Kaczmarek’s body of work taken from his numerous collaborations with Holland. A suite with music from the films Total Eclipse, Washington Square, and The Third Miracle will ensue. Jeff Beal’s work will be heard through his House of Cards composition. Four episodes of the series were directed by Agnieszka Holland.
Antoni Komasa-Łazarkiewicz prepared a suite with the score for Oscar nominated Pokot (Spoor), in which classical orchestral sounds will meet electronic sounds. Łazarkiewicz will be on live mixing duty. His suite from the film In Darkness will also be featured.
The concert will be performed by the Cracow Singers and the AUKSO Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Marek Moś.
