Oscar-winning composer Jan Kaczmarek on his Transatlantyk Fest and getting back to work  - HitFix (blog) | Music | Scoop.it

POZNAN, Poland:  Composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Score in 2005 for Marc Forster’s “Finding Neverland,” has put his writing on hold for the last few years to get his latest production off the ground. But now, he’s ready to return to his first love. 

Kaczmarek, who also scored such films as “Unfaithful,” “The Visitor,” and “Washington Square,”  started the Transatlantyk Festival, a music and film event here, in 2011. The Polish native attended college in Poznan and now splits his time between Poznan and Los Angeles.

The film is a co-production between Poland, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

A brilliant pianist, a Polish Jew, witnesses the restrictions Nazis place on Jews in the Polish capital, from restricted access to the building of the Warsaw ghetto.

Henryk Gorecki - Szeroka Woda

A lot of serene-sounding music takes cues from the music used in the early Christian church.  Arvo Pärt, for his part, has several compositions which are funtional Mass settings.  This Gorecki piece somehow manages to be unerringly gothic, and strikingly modern at the same time
