Hello,guys.I' m Hungarian,you should know that a Hungarian writer called Imre Kertész wrote the book Fateless.I read the book,since it is very important for Hungarian people,because it is about one of the darkest periods of our country and in my opinion,one of the darkest peroids of the world.The movie and the book is about a Hungarian boy who was transported to Auschwitz,the death camp of the nazis.Beautiful choir work by Lisa Gerrard,otstanding string section and interesting orchestral solutions.It is true that it is less emotional than other holocaust scores,it is because the events are seen from the perspective of a 15-year old Hungarian Jewish boy,Gyuri Köves.He accept his faith,the fact that he is used as a servant of nazi death camps,because he know that resistance is futile against his captors,but also hold on to hope that one day he will be freed somehow.The music is rather introspective in order to reflect that fact - oboes,flutes,strings and quiet and soft melodies illustrate the fact that the boy hold on to hope,despite all bad that happens around and to him.There are some scary tracks to illustrate the evil things that are done by the nazis and their symphatizers at the death camps and in other places.The ambivalent emotions of the boy - hope,fear,sorrow and tiredness - are illustrated by Lisa Gerrard' s otherwordly and ethereal voice.Also,it illustrates the fact that there are still cooperation,humanity and even friendships among such dire and inhuman conditions.At some tracks,percussion and strings are present at the same time to reflect the damages that the soul suffers because prejudices made some people behave like an animal at times.All in all,a score worth purchasing if you want to hear an unusual holocaust score.
