David Lang's Music in Oscar Winner

Monday, March 3, 2014

Italian director Paolo Sorrentino's film The Great Beauty -- a visually arresting portrait of "an aging writer's reflections on life and his search for meaning among Rome's idle rich" -- took the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards last night. The film's soundtrack features two pieces by David Lang: I lie (with the Torino Vocal Ensemble) and world to come (with Maya Beiser).

The Great Beauty is still in the middle of its US theatrical run, and is being added to more screens after its Oscar win. Check listings here to see it where you live!
