Hildur Guðnadottir and Cate Blanchett 'TÁR' LP
Pre-order. Due 20th January.
Hildur Guðnadóttir’s first and exciting new film project after her Golden Globe, Grammy and Academy Award-winning Joker score and Emmy and Grammy-winning soundtrack for the HBO hit-mini-series Chernobyl. The film, set in the international world of classical music, centers on the fictional character Lydia Tár (Cate Blanchett), widely considered one of the greatest living composers/conductors and first-ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra. TÁR marks a reemergence for director Todd Field, who made his directorial debut in 2001 with the critically acclaimed “In My Bedroom,” which earned five Oscar nominations, including best picture. His 2006 follow-up “Little Children” received similar awards attention, nabbing three Oscar nods. It will receive its world premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival 1st Sep 2022
The TÁR soundtrack is a concept album with music from and inspired by the motion picture including works by Mahler, Elgar, Guðnadóttir and more. Alongside Hildur Guðnadóttir the soundtrack also features Cate Blanchett conducting a rehearsal of Mahler’s 5th symphony and 20 year old British-German cellist Sophie Kauer.
