I don't know exactly how imminent it is, but when I inquired about Kritzerland's upcoming fourth Goldsmith title just over a month ago, he said "I'm told it's next up to be worked on":

Used to be Bruce had incredibly short turnaround times from "working on" to release date, but those have grown longer and longer over the past couple years. Still, I'd be surprised if it didn't show up in the next month or two...

It's why none of us really like to hint at things - some elements take longer to retrieve and the people who work on them have tons of other projects, so it's always a waiting game. All I've been told is that it's being worked on.

We still have our usual short turnaround time (from start to finish, The Spider was two weeks, maybe even less), but I made a decision to do less stuff this year because even though no one likes to hear it, I just get tired of the relentless parade of releases. It's also been a really busy year for me with other stuff. So no twenty-four titles this year - maybe sixteen to eighteen.

"the relentless parade of new releases......"

True, there are a lot of new cds issued. But, only Kritzerland has consistently given us high-class real music golden age cds on a regular basis. Please continue best you can Bruce. smile

It's a great score, as is all of Hyldgaard's material.

His compilation album EYE OF THE EAGLE: THE FILM MUSIC OF... is a superb listen from start to finish (also featuring the theme from THE SPIDER). A great companion piece to this new soundtrack from Kritzerland.

Why Hyldgaard never broke on to the international scene is beyond me. Maybe he's considered "too oldfashioned".

What is "too oldfashioned?" Let me guess - it sounds too much like music! wink

It is baffling. He is every bit as good as any composer working today, and better than most I hear. But we love him and we'll have another release, one CD containing two scores, very soon.

Here it is.

Kritzerland is proud to present a new limited edition CD release:

THE SPIDER

Composed by Soren Hyldgaard

Nordic Noir. Wallander. Steig Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest). The Killing (Forbrydelsen) from Denmark, which was a sensational hit, spawning a not nearly as effective American version. The Bridge (Bron) a Danish/Swedish production, again spawning a not nearly as effective American version. And then there was the wonderful Danish miniseries, The Spider (Edderkopen) from 2000.

The series was set in post World War II Copenhagen, with the country still recovering from the end of Nazi occupation, with gangsters, corruption, and the black market everywhere. It’s a large, tangled spider’s web of intrigue, deceit, honor, love, corruption and family, played out against an atmosphere thick with wonderful period detail in the settings and costumes. And what really ties the six brilliant episodes together is the wonderful and evocative score by Soren Hyldgaard.

Beginning with the mesmerizing main title music, which draws you immediately into a musical spider’s web, the score is so multilayered, varied and rich in its thematic material, it almost plays like a noir tone poem. Hyldgaard is that rare thing in film music today, a composer who is not afraid of melody, and his melodies in The Spider are sublime and unforgettable. His music is part of the fabric of the series and propels us from episode to episode, tying together all the various plots and subplots. The music is beautifully played by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

We are thrilled to bring his stunning score to The Spider to CD. There was an earlier CD release in Denmark, which quickly went out of print – that CD was about forty-four minutes duration. This CD runs close to seventy-nine minutes and is complete save for some repeated themes and cues. It’s a major score with occasional echoes of Herrmann, Goldsmith and John Barry, but somehow remaining its own unique musical landscape. This CD was mastered from the composer’s complete score tapes.

The Spider is limited to 1000 copies only and is priced at $19.98, plus shipping.

CDs will ship by the last week of September, but we’ve been averaging three to five weeks early in terms of shipping ahead of the official ship date. To place an order, see the cover, or hear audio samples, just visit www.kritzerland.com.




This title must have been brought out while I was away at Hospital. However, I read your description of the Danish series and for some reason Bruce, you got me hooked on finding it to view. No luck though as it's not at Netflix nor available at Amazon. That time-frame sounds really interesting to me. Still, after listening to the sound samples, you are correct (of course), Bruce, I can 'hear' a wonderful shifting mixture of John Barry and Jerry Goldsmith with a pinch of Herrmann. Evocative and swoony in places, I'm sure to order it soon. It won't sell as quickly because it doesn't have the words 'Fast' or 'Furious' in the title, but you've offered us something special and I thank you for it Bruce!

I will warn that the quality isn't so great, but I just loved the whole feel of the show so I enjoyed it despite the quality.

Are those two scores represented on the compilation CD mentioned above, Bruce? roll eyes

Why are you rolling your eyes, perchance? One of the scores has one short theme on the compilation, while the companion score is not represented at all on the compilation.

Oh, the eyes! A silly mistake in a hasty copy-paste process between 2-3 other activities. Didn't check and just realized it now with your response - it should have been wink , of course!
OK, thanks for the clue, Bruce!...

This board becomes worse with every passing day. Five out of ten posts go through without a problem, while the others may or may not go through although you're told they don't go through. Which is why there are so many double posts, this formerly having been one of them.

And yet Wallander is just about gone - it took time, but I knew it would be a steady seller and in the last year alone it's sold over 600 copies.

Good to know. Let's hope "The Spider" will follow same 'friendly persuasion' pattern. wink
