Conceptual Soundtrack on 45rpm 180g Vinyl LP!

Deutsche Grammophon presents Hildur Guðnadóttir's exciting film project - a groundbreaking concept album for Todd Field's movie TÁR, starring Cate Blanchett in the title role. With the soundtracks for Joker, Chernobyl and Battlefield 2042 among her credits, the Icelandic composer and cellist's film, TV and video game work has been recognized with an Oscar, two Grammys, and Golden Globe, Emmy and BAFTA awards, among many others.

The multi-faceted concept album features music from and inspired by the movie, including a series of stunning tracks by Guðnadóttir, as well as extracts from major works by Elgar and Mahler. It complements the film by presenting completed, real-life versions of the music on which we see the fictional protagonist Lydia Tár working. One of the aims of the album is to reveal something of the complex process that goes on behind orchestral rehearsals and recordings.

Written and directed by three-time Oscar-nominated filmmaker Field, TÁR tells the story of high-powered composer-conductor Lydia Tár, played by Cate Blanchett. The two-time Oscar winner immersed herself in every aspect of her character's life and can be seen - and heard on the DG album - conducting rehearsals of a Mahler symphony with extraordinary skill. Her fellow cast members include talented young British-German cellist Sophie Kauer, whose playing also features on the concept album.

The tracks, like the film, are meant to invite the listener to experience the messiness involved in the making of music.
