CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS!

  Bill Wilson won Canadian Opera Company tickets for Così fan tutte, directed by Atom Egoyan (January 2014). Three readers have won soundtrack CDs for Egoyan films with scores by his long-time collaborator — composer Mychael Danna. The following comments on each of the scores are by Egoyan himself.  Janos Gardonyi wins ARARAT. “Mychael does an astonishing job of blending Armenian film music, sacred moments from our liturgy and choir, and finding his own orchestral vision.”  Claudia Krawchuk wins EXOTICA. “One of the breakthrough examples of ‘world music’ that brought Mychael to my attention, it’s the only score where many of the themes were explored before we started shooting.”  Annie Odom wins FELICIA’S JOURNEY. “A crazy mix of pure Celtic, atonality, 50s kitsch pop and Mantovani. This is one of Mychael’s most inventive and exploratory scores.”
