Info for Mountain (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The music soundtrack to the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s critically acclaimed collaboration with director Jennifer Peedom.

Three years ago, the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s Artistic Director Richard Tognetti approached BAFTA-nominated director Jennifer Peedom (Sherpa) with a vision for an expressive interweaving of music and film. The result of this collaboration is Mountain: a cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains.

Premiered in concert in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall as part of Sydney’s Vivid LIVE 2017, Mountain draws the listener in to a world in which majesty and terror collide, thousands of metres above and beyond the familiar, comfortable landscape of the everyday.

Richard Tognetti worked closely with Peedom to curate a stunning soundscape that mirrors the serenity, magnitude and terror of the landscapes featured in the film. Works by Chopin, Grieg, Vivaldi, and Beethoven are featured, as well as original music by Tognetti himself.

“The original music I wrote for Mountain was composed in real collaboration with Jennifer [Peedom],” Tognetti said. “She would tell me what she was trying to express and what the scene in the movie meant, and then I would try and come up with the musical equivalent. Some of the compositions are filmic and some of them are more like dreamscapes.”

He studied at the Sydney Conservatorium with Alice Waten, in his home town of Wollongong with William Primrose, and at the Berne Conservatory (Switzerland) with Igor Ozim, where he was awarded the Tschumi Prize as the top graduate soloist in 1989. Later that year he was appointed Leader of the Australian Chamber Orchestra and subsequently became Artistic Director. He is also Artistic Director of the Maribor Festival in Slovenia and Creative Associate of Classical Music for Melbourne Festival.

In 2005, he co-composed the soundtrack to Tom Carroll’s surf film Horrorscopes and, in 2008, created The Red Tree, inspired by illustrator Shaun Tan’s book. He co-created and starred in the 2008 documentary film Musica Surfica, which has won best film awards at surf film festivals in the USA, Brazil, France and South Africa.

As well as directing numerous recordings by the ACO, Tognetti has recorded Bach’s solo violin repertoire for ABC Classics, winning three consecutive ARIA awards, and the Dvorak and Mozart Violin Concertos for BIS.
