Abel Korzeniowski’s elegiac, string-lead score to fashion designer Tom Ford’s stylish directing debut based on Christopher Isherwood’s 1964 novel.

Set in 1962. A Single Man stars Colin Firth as a teacher grieving over the death of his partner and planning suicide to end his pain. The film follows an unhappy single day in the life of an unhappy single man.

Abel Korzeniowski’s score beautifully complements the film and is supplemented by additional music from Shigeru Umebayashi. The source music included eclectically ranges from opera to Booker T & The MG’s. The soundtrack has already been nominated for the Golden Globe Award.

Polish born Korzeniowski’s credits include a new score for silent classic Metropolis, Battle For Terra and Copernicus’ Star.

Shigeru Umebayashi has been scoring Japanese and Chinese films for over 25 years including box office hits In The Mood For Love and House Of Flying Daggers.

“The film score written by Abel Korzeniowski and Shigeru Umebayashi is variegated and full of lush orchestral themes that salute Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann, among others” – Hollywood Reporter

“A quietly powerful score from relative newcomer Abel Korzeniowski” – Empire Magazine (4*)
