Description

Wojciech Kilar,Sumi Jo,City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra,Konicek - The Ninth Gate

Roman Polanski's 1999 supernatural thiriller The Ninth Gate (starring Johnny Depp) was a worldwide commercial success, despite being perceived as inferior to Polanski's classic, Rosemary's Baby. The soundtrack, by Wojciech Kilar, further established the composer as a master of supernatural suspence and features Korean-born soprano Sumi Jo

Reviews

"The awesome choral work on
Balkan's Death and Corso And The Girl is stunning"
-Empire ***
"If menacingly haunting horror music is your delight, then The Ninth Gate is not a score to miss."
-Filmtracks ****
When he scored Bram Stoker's Dracula for Francis Ford Coppola back in 1992, Polish composer Wojciech Kilar produced one of the most spine-tingling horror soundtracks in years. Well guess what? He's pulled the trick off again with his hypnotic music for Roman Polanski's latest, The Ninth Gate, a listen to which is guaranteed to have you looking over your shoulder and under the bed. An atmospheric collection of cues suffused with foreboding, it opens with the lilting Vocalise, which has a Morricone-esque quality to it thanks to the haunting vocals of soprano Sumi Jo. This piece forms the backbone of the score, though it
becomes darker during its various interpretations, mesmerizing one with its repetitious Philip Glass-style bassline. The secondary theme, Corso, is a rather more chipper piece, carried by piano and trumpet, though gradually the two themes converge in the Bolero-like Plane to Spain. Add to this some intensely dramatic passages, such as the kettledrum-led Balkan's Death and the aptly-titled Boo! and you have an album to savour again and again — but with the lights on!
