Synopsis

Product Description
Of Williams' approximately seventy film scores, the soundtrack for Schindler's
List is considered one of his masterpieces. Compositionally, Williams departed
from his usual swashbuckling style for a more classical sounding score. The
effect is that of subtlety and nuance in a score rich with hauntingly beautiful
melodies. Williams chose to feature the violin as the principal voice in large part
because of its associations to Jewish music and since, 'the violin itself remains
an instrument of enormous expressive power.' To complement Williams Schindler's List suite, Alexandre da Costa has chosen
Ernst Bloch s Suite Hébraîque. Rounding out the program, Swiss pianist Marc
Pantillon joins the Bienne orchestra for Bloch's Concerto grosso #1. Alexandre da Costa's previous ATMA disc was one of ATMA's two top-selling
2008 releases in the United States. Produced, recorded and edited by Johanne Goyette at the Palais des
Congrès de Bienne, Switzerland, 19-21 March, 2008
