Film music composer
Zbigniew Preisner (born in 1955) is considered to be one of the most outstanding polish composers of his generation. For many years Preisner enjoyed a close collaboration with the director Krzysztof Kieslowski. His scores for Kieslowski's films Dekalog, The Double Life of Veronique, Three Colours : Blue, White and Red have brought him international acclaim and their partnership reminds of the famous past duos of Fellini-Nino Rota, Hitchcock-Bernard Herrmann or Truffaut-Georges Delerue.
During the last twelve years Preisner has scored many international feature films including Hector Babenco's At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Louis Malle's Damage, Agnieszka Holland's The Secret Garden, Jean Becker's Effroyables Jardins, Thomas Vinterberg's It's All About Love, Jan Schütte's Supertex.
