Original Music by Oscar® Winner Jan. A.P. Kaczmarek (Finding Neverland)Sony Music proudly announces the release of PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) with original music by Oscar® winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek.Of working on the film’s music, composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek said, “Paul, Apostle of Christ, is a rare kind of film, which allows a composer, even demands from him, to speak in a fresh, original voice. I hope I found that tone, one which gives an additional strength to this powerful, inspiring movie, inviting the audience to enjoy its emotional and intellectual depth.”Paul, Apostle of Christ is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero's darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul's death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of "The Way" and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. Bound in chains, Paul's struggle is internal. He has survived so much – floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure – yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten…and if he has the strength to finish well. Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.Directed and written by Andrew Hyatt, the movie stars Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ), James Faulkner (Downton Abbey), Olivier Martinez (S.W.A.T.), Joanne Whalley (A.D. The Bible Continues) and John Lynch (The Secret Garden).ABOUT JAN A.P. KACZMAREK:Jan A.P. Kaczmarek is a composer with a tremendous international reputation that continues to grow. As a successful recording artist and touring musician, Jan turned to composing film scores as his primary occupation. Jan's first success in the United States came in theater. After composing striking scores for productions at Chicago's Goodman Theatre and Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum, Jan won an Obie and a Drama Desk Award for his music for the New York Shakespeare Festival's 1992 production of John Ford's Tis Pity She's A Whore, directed by JoAnne Akalaitis, starring Val Kilmer and Jeanne Tripplehorn. Newsday wrote that Jan's score undulates with hypnotic force that gets under your skin, while Frank Rich of the New York Times found it worthy of the films of Bernardo Bertolucci and Luchino Visconti.Educated as a lawyer, he abandoned his planned career as a diplomat, for political reasons, to write music in order to finally gain freedom of expression. First he composed for the highly politicized underground theater, and then for a mini-orchestra of his own creation, The Orchestra of the Eighth Day. The major turning point in his life, he says, was a period of intense study with avant-garde theater director, Jerzy Grotowski. "Playing and composing was like a religion for me," Kaczmarek explains, "and then it became a profession."The Orchestra of the Eighth Day began touring Europe in the late 1970's and to date, has completed eighteen major tours. They appeared at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, the VPRO Radio International Contemporary Music Festival in Amsterdam, the Venice Biennale, and the International Music Festival in Karlovy Vary, Czechoslovakia, where Jan won the Golden Spring Prize for the Best Composition. He is a five-time winner in Jazz Forum's Jazz Top Poll. At the end of the Orchestra's first American tour in 1982, Kaczmarek recorded his debut album, Music for the End, for the Chicago-based major independent Flying Fish Records. Jan returned to America in 1989 to find a label for his latest composition for the Orchestra. Jan stayed in the United States where he expanded his horizons by composing for theater as he had already done in Poland with great success, capped by two prestigious New York theater awards in 1992. Having also composed music for films in Poland, he focused his attention to that medium, achieving recognition as a film composer with scores to such films as Total Eclipse, Bliss, Washington Square, Aimée & Jaguar, The Third Miracle, Lost Souls, Edges of the Lord, Quo Vadis and Adrian Lyne's Unfaithful.In February of 2005, Jan won his first Oscar® for Best Original Score on Marc Forster's highly acclaimed film, Finding Neverland.Jan also won The National Review Board's award for Best Score of the Year, and was nominated for both a Golden Globe® and BAFTA's Anthony Asquith Award for Achievement in Film Music. In addition to his work in films, Jan is setting up an institute inspired by the Sundance Institute in his home country of Poland, as a European center for development of new work in the areas of film, theatre, music and new media.TRACKLISTING1    Love is the Only Way2    Nero's Rome3    Luke Sneaks Into the City4    The Community5    Mamertime Prison6    An Arrangement7    Jerusalem Violence8    Thorn in the Flesh9    The Hope10    A Blind Love11    Road to Damascus12    Saul's Transformation13    Separate Paths14    Storming the Prison15    Heavenly Vision16    Mauritius Sacrifices to the Gods17    Luke Heals Celia18    Write it Down19    Exodus
