Aside from the Three Colours trilogy, Preisner, a relatively unknown composer, creates a score for this magical Hodgson Burnett adaptation that uplifts the listener. Traversing from the mystic India to the sweeping English countryside, Preisner's score for Agnieszka Holland's adaptation of the classic children's story The Secret Garden takes the listener on a journey, as any memorable score should, and gives each landscape and character a distinct theme. One can shut their eyes whilst listening to the score and picture the garden's progression from overhanging and unkempt land to a fertile, blossoming landscape wherein the protagonist, Mary, played with great naivety as well as intelligence by newcomer Kate Maberly, has the power and strength to grow. The Garden Is A Character Itself, Elevating Preisner's Score To Great Heights The garden is a metaphor both for Mary and Colin's progression from childhood innocents into mature adults as well as their individual barriers to overcome. Mary has the chance to be loved by her Uncle, Lord Archibald Craven (John Lynch) where she was abandoned by her neglecting parents. Presiner's score compliments the symbols and the allegories hidden in Holland's adaptation of the story. The main title invokes the echoing sounds of children, like soft crying, and the theme builds to match the sense of impending disaster as the earthquake ensues and parts Mary from her parents. The score begins rooted in Indian culture before shifting the tone from the frenetic pace of India to the tranquility of the English countryside with soft piano melodies. First Time Outside and Entering The Garden invoke a release for Mary, held prisoner in a manor house by Maggie Smith's multi-facetted Mrs Medlock. In Walking Through The Garden a spoilt rich girl gains her independence and starts to grow. The garden is Mary's escape; her freedom to blossom. Moreover, there is both a delicacy and a strength within this piece of music that strongly echoes Mary's persona. The Garden Unites The Three Of Them And Signals Full Growth Changing Seasons represents a further growth of the garden and transformation of Mary and Colin. The middle track of the score, Awakening Of Spring, implies a sense of growth but not a full transformation. The theme appears to be a raw indication of Mary's maturity. Preisner's themes for Lord Craven, seen in the film clothed in black and hidden in the shadows, reflect his mysterious persona by the utilisation of a dramatic piano. Taking Colin To The Garden builds on the main theme, focussing on Colin's ability to walk and experience the beauty of the world outside the confines of his bed. Colin Opens His Eyes builds this theme into a crescendo. The aptly named Happily Ever After concludes the soundtrack in a soft, comtemplative manner. The only absent track from the score is Linda Ronstadt's Winter Light which plays over the film's end credits and seems to fititngly conclude the story. Mary, Colin and Lord Craven are free from their constraints. The garden has brought them all together. Preisner's thematically rich yet delicate score represents a fine addition to a beloved story.

Pictures Storyline A young British girl born and reared in India loses her neglectful parents in an earthquake. She is returned to England to live at her uncle's castle. Her uncle is very distant due to the loss of his wife ten years before. Neglected once again, she begins exploring the estate and discovers a garden that has been locked and neglected. Aided by one of the servants' boys, she begins restoring the garden, and eventually discovers some other secrets of the manor. Written by Ed Sutton Zbigniew Preisner Zbigniew Preisner (born 20 May 1955 in Bielsko-Bia?a) as Zbigniew Antoni Kowalski is one of Poland's leading film score composers, best known for his work with film director Krzysztof Kie?lowski. Zbigniew Preisner studied history and philosophy in Krak?w. Never having received formal music lessons, he taught himself about music by listening and transcribing parts from records. His compositional style represents a distinctively spare form of tonal neo-Romanticism. Paganini and Jean Sibelius are acknowledged influences. Preisner is best known for the music composed for the films directed by fellow Pole Krzysztof Kie?lowski. His Song for the Unification of Europe, based on the Greek text of 1 Corinthians 13, is attributed to a character in Kie?lowski's Three Colors: Blue and plays a dominating role in the story. His music for Three Colors: Red includes a setting of Polish and French versions of a poem by Wis?awa Szymborska, a Polish Nobel Prize-winning poet. After working with Kie?lowski on Three Colors: Blue, Preisner was hired by the producer Francis Ford Coppola to write the score for The Secret Garden, directed by Polish director Agnieszka Holland. Although Preisner is most closely associated with Kie?lowski, he has collaborated with several other directors, winning a César in 1996 for his work on Jean Becker's Elisa. He has won a number of other awards, including another César in 1994 for Three Colors: Red, and the Silver Bear from the 1997 Berlin Film Festival 1997 for The Island on Bird Street. In 1998, Requiem for My Friend, Preisner's first large scale work not written for film, premiered. It was originally intended as a narrative work to be written by Krzysztof Piesiewicz and directed by Kie?lowski, but it became a memorial to Kie?lowski after the director's death. He composed the theme music for the People's Century, a monumental twenty-six part documentary made jointly in 1994 by the BBC television network in United Kingdom and the PBS television network in the United States. He has also worked with director Thomas Vinterberg on the 2003 film It's All About Love and provided orchestration for David Gilmour's 2006 album On An Island. Silence, Night and Dreams is Zbigniew Preisner's new recording project, a large-scale work for orchestra, choir and soloists, based on texts from the Book of Job. The premier recording, was released in 2007 with the lead singer of Madredeus, Teresa Salgueiro and boy soprano Thomas Cully from Libera.
