About

Widely acclaimed upon its release in 2006, Philip Glassís score for Neil Burgerís film The Illusionist was ultimately overlooked for an Academy Award nomination (probably owing to the filmís small budget) in favour of Glassís nominated score to Notes on a Scandal despite the popularity and praise for the former. Glassís score for the film set in 1900 Vienna evokes a feeling of mystery and wonder surrounding the famous magician Eisenheim (played by Edward Norton) and was performed brilliantly by the Czech Film Orchestra under the baton of Michael Riesman. As part of the ongoing ďFrom the Philip Glass Recording ArchiveĒ, this reissue from Orange Mountain Music aims to keep this brilliant score by Philip Glass in print and presents a complete remastering from the original tapes, now almost a decade after the original release.
