FILMSCORE

NARCISSUS AND GOLDMUND

Director: Stefan Ruzowitzky
Music: Henning Fuchs

NARCISSUS AND GOLDMUND, directed by Academy Award-winner Stefan Ruzowitzky (THE COUNTERFEITERS), is the film adaptation of literature Nobel Prize-winner Hermann Hesse's bestseller. Henning's score features the Haydn Orchestra Bolzano and Trento, Ensemble Vocale Continuum, David Kuckhermann (Handpans) and Julla von Landsberg (Soprano).

In the dark Middle Ages, young unruly Goldmund is sent to a monastery by his father to atone for the sins of his mother who abandoned them. It is there that he meets Narcissus, a brilliant, scholarly novice, who is introverted and aloof. A unique and deep life-long friendship is born. Narcissus chooses to remain detached from the world in prayer and meditation. Goldmund, who is passionate, sensual and impulsive, runs away from the monastery to live a picaresque wanderer's life, his amorous and artistic adventures leading him to discover the extremes of both ecstasy and pain. Several thrilling years pass, until one day these friends cross paths again…

Film and soundtrack will be released on March 13, 2020.
