Three Colors: Red
(With CD, 2PC)
Vinyl LP pressing includes bonus CD pressing. Zbigniew Preisner is a self-educated Polish film score composer who first won renown for his collaborations with influential Polish director and screenwriter Krzysztof Kieslowski. As part of its reissue series focusing on Preisner's work with Kieslowski, Because Music presents a reissue of Preisner's score for Kieslowski's Three Colors: Red (1994), the third film in Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy following Blue and White. The trilogy is themed on the French Revolutionary ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity; Red is about fraternity, which it examines by showing characters whose lives gradually become closely interconnected. Red stars Jean-Louis Trintignant and Irene Jacob, and received universal acclaim upon its release; Preisner's score, performed by the Sinfonia Varsovia and the Silesian Philharmonic choir, won the 1995 Cesar Award for Best Music. The score opens with a performance by Zbigniew Zamachowski. Zbigniew Preisner has also worked with Jean Becker (on Elisa, winner of the 1996 Cesar Award for Best Music), Thomas Vinterberg (It's All About Love), and Claude Miller (Un secret).
