LIMITED REPRESS! DELUXE GATEFOLD LP AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 5 YEARS!
Dark and delicately haunting sacred score to Jaromil Jires' essential Eastern European hallucinogenic-baroque-witch-flick Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders. Lubos Fiser provides what is perhaps the greatest musical score of all the maligned Czech New Wave feature-films with a gossamer-fragile blend of pastoral-orchestral folk songs and clockwork harpsichords.
Previously unprepared for public consumption the immaculate release has been compiled in close accordance to the original storyline which was released in 1935 as a surrealist novel by Vladislav Nezval. The orchestral suites of music have been separated into 23 chapters with titles derived from the controversial novella. This seminal release comes complete with unseen archive images, original international poster designs and new and extensive sleevenotes by Andy Votel, Professor Peter Hames and Trish Keenan from Broadcast.
