Varèse Sarabande will release a special collection featuring music from the 10th edition of the KRAKOW FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL 2017 (FESTIWAL MUZYKI FILMOWEJ w Krakowie 2017) on CD on May 22, 2017.

The Krakow Film Music Festival is now the biggest film music festival in the world and in 2017 celebrated its 10th anniversary.  Continuing their 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 a part of this year’s concerts, the album 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 include “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!
