About this album

The Truman Show is a 1998 American dramedy film directed by Peter Weir and written by Andrew Niccol. The cast includes Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank, as well as Laura Linney, Noah Emmerich, Ed Harris and Natascha McElhone. The film chronicles the life of a man who discovers he is living in a constructed reality soap opera, televised 24/7 to billions across the globe.

The original music for The Truman Show was composed by Burkhard Dallwitz. Dallwitz was hired after Peter Weir received a tape of his work while in Australia for the post-production. Some parts of the soundtrack were composed by Philip Glass, including four pieces which appeared in his previous works (Powaqqatsi, Anima Mundi, and Mishima, the opening movement from the latter of which appears over the end credits in The Truman Show). Glass also appears very briefly in the film as one of the in-studio composer / performers.

Also featured in the film are Frederic Chopin’s “Romance - Larghetto” from his first piano concerto, performed by Arthur Rubinstein, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Rondo Alla Turca” from his Piano Sonata No. 11 in A Major, performed by Wilhelm Kempff, Wojciech Kilar’s “Father Kolbe’s Preaching” performed by the Orchestra Philharmonique National de Pologne and “20th Century Boy” performed by rockabilly band The Big Six.

    I think this soundtrack is great for working too. It's a shame the Mozart piano concerto from the film isn't on the soundtrack though.
