Abel Korzeniowski scored Warner Bros latest feature Emily, is out now in theaters nationwide!
Emily is double Golden Globe nominee Frances O’Connor’s triumphant directorial debut, and is an imagining of famed writer Emily Bronte’s origin story. Starring BAFTA nominee Emma Mackey, Fionn Whitehead, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Alexandra Dowling, Amelia Gething,Gemma Jones and Adrian Dunbar, the biographical drama tells the “transformative, exhilarating, and uplifting journey to womanhood of a rebel and a misfit, one of the world’s most famous, enigmatic, and provocative writers.”
“Set to Abel Korzeniowski’s exceptional score, which is tempestuous and classical but frays at the edges into scraping violins, the filmmaking at times borders on the expressionistic, without ever betraying the traditional period form.”- Jessica King, Variety
“Beautifully shot by Nanu Segal and featuring a wildly innovative score by Abel Korzeniowski, Emily is a noteworthy achievement for all concerned.” – Christopher Schobert, The Film Stage
“Emily is, in a word, stunning. Composers don’t get to write music like this very often these days – music that is filled with a sense of longing, of romantic desire, of tragic beauty. There are sumptuous themes and melodies and dazzling harmonies that tread that line between light and dark, happiness and despair, life and death, all anchored by the composer’s traditional writing that focuses on strings and piano backed by a larger orchestra.“ Jonathan Broxton, Movie Music UK
“Abel Korzeniowski’s score ramps up the gothic romance and adds a note of thunderous horror to otherwise demure scenes of cloistered walls closing in.” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
Emily Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out now on Spitfire.
