Zbigniew Preisner Interview



Zbigniew Preisner discusses his formative musical influences and collaborations, in particular Krzysztof Kieślowski, and the manner in which these relationships have varied over the years. Preisner talks about the challenges of capturing a film’s tone in its music, a particular example being his work on the film Damage (1992). There is also a discussion of how music reinforces themes and aids in characterization in the films of Kieślowski, specifically Three Colours: Blue (1993) and The Double Life of Véronique (1991), including the function of Preisner’s fictional alter ego Van den Budenmayer.
