Vinyl LP pressing includes bonus CD pressing. Zbigniew Preisner is a self-educated Polish film score composer who first won renown for his collaborations with influential Polish director and screenwriter Krzysztof Kieslowski. As part of its reissue series focusing on Preisner's work with Kieslowski, Because Music presents a reissue of Preisner's score for Kieslowski's Three Colors: Blue (1993), the first film in Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy, preceding White and Red. The trilogy is themed on the French Revolutionary ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity; according to Kieslowski, the subject of Blue is liberty, specifically emotional liberty, rather than its social or political meaning. Blue stars Benoit Regent and Juliette Binoche, and received universal acclaim upon its release. Preisner's soundtrack is performed by the Sinfonia Varsovia and the Silesian Philharmonic choir, and includes pieces credited to fictional composer Van den Budenmayer. Zbigniew Preisner has also worked with Jean Becker (on Elisa, winner of the 1996 Cesar Award for Best Music), Thomas Vinterberg (It's All About Love, and Claude Miller (Un secret).
