And yet another splendid offering for the Kronos Records 10 year Anniversary celebration is the soundtrack for Turkish filmmaker Cenk Ertürk's acclaimed film Noah Land. The music is by rising star Leon Gurvitch, who managed to pen a very intimate and extremely effective dramatic score for this film.

“My aim was to make an emotional contribution to this touching story by means of music,” explains composer Leon Gurvitch about the music “The intensely loaded soundtrack pairs powerful thrilling melodies with neo-folkloristic sounds thus creating an organic musical accompaniment to this intimate father-son drama staged amid rural Turkish landscapes. I feel privileged to have been invited to work on this movie score with talented director Cenk Ertürk who gave me artistic freedom and many creative impulses.” The recording was made with an ensemble of international musicians: string orchestra, wood winds, piano & percussion. Some pieces from the soundtrack have been already performed by Leon Gurvitch & Ensemble in New York, Berliner Philharmonie & Bechstein Centrum Hamburg.' - Leon Gurvitch -
