Title - 'Copying Beethoven' (Decca)
Artist - Antoni Lazarkiewicz

Featuring the works of Ludwig van Beethoven, this new just-released Decca soundtrack tells the story of an aspiring composer of humble means. The story itself revolves around 23-year-old Anna Holtz (Diane Kruger), who is seeking inspiration and career advancement in the world’s music capital, Vienna. A student at the music conservatory, she is recommended for a position at a venerated publisher, and, in a fortuitous turn of events, orchestrates an opportunity to work beside the greatest, most mercurial artist alive - Ludwig van Beethoven (Ed Harris). When the skeptical Beethoven issues an impromptu challenge, Anna demonstrates her competence and musical insight. The maestro accepts Anna as his copyist, beginning a remarkable relationship that will transform both of their lives. Featuring Harris’ remarkable incarnation as the celebrated composer, and a breakthrough performance by Kruger, ("Troy," "National Treasure") COPYING BEETHOVEN, directed by Agnieszka Holland, ("Secret Garden," "Europa, Europa") centers on the last years of Beethoven’s life…a turbulent period in which his struggles with deafness, loneliness and family trauma all of which provide profound inspiration for arguably the greatest symphony ever written, his astonishing Ninth. Featuring scores by Valdimir Ashkenazy, the Takacz Quartet, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, 'Copying Beethoven' is a formidable work of art, for many differing reasons.
