Polish composer Zbigniew Preisner is well known for his collaborations with influential Polish director and screenwriter Krzysztof Kieslowski for the ‘Trois Couleurs’ film trilogy. Preisner's haunting, operatic score for Kieslowski's 1991 film ‘La Double Vie de Véronique’ was awarded the 1991 Los Angeles Film Critics Award for Best Music and won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury and the FIPRESCI Prize at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival for Krzysztof Kieslowski, and the Best Actress Award for Irène Jacob.

 

 

Starring Irène Jacob as Veronique and Weronika, Kieslowski's La Double Vie de Veronique explores the subject of human fragility through a highly imaginative dual narrative, addressing the possibility that we each have a spiritual twin. Preisner's score contains some of his most well-known themes, particularly "Van den Budenmayer Concerto in E minor" and "Les Marionnettes".

The music was recorded by Zbigniew Malecki and Aleksander Dowsilas and the soundtrack album was first released in 1991 on Sideral and re-issued on Virgin in 1998.

One of the greatest soundtracks of the late 20th Century finally gets its first ever vinyl issue, includes a copy of the CD free inside. This incredible soundtrack from one of the greatest film score composers of the modern age is at long last available on vinyl. The work of Poland's Zbigniew Preisner is closely linked to that of film director Krzysztof Kieslowski, the pair having worked together since the widely acclaimed "Decalogue" series began production in the mid 1980's. This soundtrack to Kieslowski's most moving film ranges from the Satie-esque solo piano melancholy of "Puppets" to the "Van Den Budenmayer" operatic score that plays such a central role in the film (Fans of Kieslwoski will be aware of Presiner's alter-ego "Van Den Budenmayer", a character that hovers in ghostly fashion through all of the director's later films, though never more centrally than in "La Double Vie De Veronique" and the "Three colours" trilogy, especially Bleu). Amazing music, regardless of whether you're familiar with the work of either Kieslowski or Preisner - a hugely recommended listen.
