regarding the music score by Zbigniew Preisner
25 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I fully endorse the previous comment. The series was superb. I particularly admired the musical score by Zbigniew Preisner which managed to enhance the drama without overwhelming it. I had heard only one other score by this composer which was music to the film Damage. I did not enjoy the film very much and thought the score was the best thing in it! Ihave discovered recently that Preisner composed the scores for the trilogy Red, Blue and White which I enjoyed immensely.

If any other contributor knows of any further works by this composer I should be glad to hear of them.

I sincerely hope this wonderful series gets another airing.
