BiographyAn award-winning Polish composer who has been active since the early 1980s, Zbigniew Preisner creates scores for the big screen that, while possessing a dramatic life all their own, complement moving images wonderfully. Sometimes employing a full orchestra, and at other times a small ensemble, his music sets a distinctive and entrancing tone that brings together elements of modern classical, Eastern European folk music, and atmospheric -- albeit un-electronic -- Ambient. Percussion clashes over stirring string passages as massive themes build with unbelievable intensity. Best known for his work on such foreign successes as Europa, Europa and Trois Couleurs: Rouge, Preisner has also worked with directors such as Louis Malle and Hector Babenco (noted Brazilian director of Kiss of the Spider Woman).
