The 10th Anniversary Edition of the Krakow Film Music Festival has just ended. Until today, the official festival CD was only available in Poland but we are now so happy to now make this stunning compilation of music heard at this year's event available to film music fans around the world.
The CD features tracks by FMF guests including Giorgio Moroder, Howard Shore, Brian Tyler, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, Abel Korzeniowski, Klaus Doldinger, Sean Callery, Trevor Morris, Jean-Michel Bernard and Sara Andon.
Continuing our association with this remarkable event, Varèse Sarabande has again produced the official Krakow Film Music Festival CD 2017. Featuring over 75 minutes of music by the composers who were part of this year's concerts, it is an eclectic sample of film music's incredible variety.
"The Krakow Film Music Festival has become the largest film music festival in the world. In producing the official Festival CD each year my task is to represent each of the composers who will be guests of the festival and also other music that will be performed live", explained Varèse Sarabande Producer Robert Townson. "I love that the result is a single CD that everyone is part of. This year's disc features music from five Academy Award®-winning scores: Howard Shore's The Lord of the Rings, John Williams' Star Wars, Giorgio Moroder's Midnight Express, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek's Finding Neverland and James Horner's Titanic."
The album features music by composers including Giorgio Moroder, Brian Tyler, Howard Shore, Sean Callery, Abel Korzeniowski, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, Jean-Michel Bernard, James Horner, Jeff Russo, Trevor Morris, Klaus Doldinger, and John Williams. This year's concerts included "The Music of Abel Korzeniowski", "Cinematic Piano", "Dance2Cinema," "FMF Youth Orchestra Plays Star Wars," "Romance Before FMF: Dancing To Film Music," plus "The NeverEnding Story" and "Titanic" live-to-picture. All of these concerts surrounded the festival's central "All Is Film Music" Anniversary Gala, featuring almost all of the attending composers performing to an audience of 15,000 people!
Deluxe packaging include photos from the festival's amazing history and a lengthy essay by Robert Townson that recounts the festival's highlights from past years.
