Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Remo Anzovino
Label: Sony Classical
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 15 February 2019

Sony Music release the soundtrack for Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies featuring original music by composer Remo Anzovino. The movie provides a new look at Van Gogh through the legacy of the greatest private collector of the Dutch artist’s work: Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), who in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings. This is a story that tells the tale of the spiritual bond between two people who never met during their lifetime (Helene Kröller-Müller was 21 when Van Gogh died in 1890), but shared the same attraction for the Absolute, the same uncompromising search for a pure artistic, religious dimension...

The soundtrack to Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies is one that works whether you're a fan of the movie or haven't seen it. As a standalone album of music it perfectly builds up a narrative by delivering a handful of prominent themes that weave their way through the 22 tracks (1 hr, 04 min, 09 sec). The three most notable being the themes in 'Vincent', 'Helene' and 'Arles Symphony'.

In addition 'At Helene's House' is a track that is pure traditional classical music, adding another element to the score, as does the Herrmann-esque strings on 'Madness'.

Overall, there isn't a wasted second of music here. It represents a rich, varied and intensely moving musical journey.
