THE STORY: The dramatic tale of a woman whose holocaust memoir took the world by storm, but a fallout with her publisher – who turned detective – revealed an audacious deception created to hide a darker truth.
THE SCORE: “Misha and the Wolves is kind of a psychological thriller; a fairy tale where all is not as it seems. I wanted to create a sense of an incredible story being told through the filter of memory; of an epic journey with a hint of a fairy tale, but always with a hint of darkness, of a story with further layers to be revealed. It seemed right to feature traditional storytelling musical elements, but with the potential to twist and turn and subvert those elements as director Sam Hobkinson did with the story; orchestrator Ben Foster & I worked with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra to create rich warm strings that could turn glacial at a beat’s notice; and with clarinettist Ben Castle to make moody woodwind pads full of texture and physicality; all built on a bed of uneasy synth textures and tones.” – Nick Foster
