Eisenstein: Oktober

10 years after the Russian Revolution in 1917, Sergei M. Eisenstein caused an artistic uproar. His greatest epic, Oktober (or the ‘Ten Days that Shook the World’) commemorates the fall of the Czar and the founding of the Communist regime in what almost seems to be an eyewitness account. 

The symphonic soundtrack is separate from the film, and was composed of works by emigrant and oppressed Soviet composers Sergei Prokofiev, Dmitri Shostakovich and Mieczysław Weinberg.

Soundtrack compiled by Professor Dr. Francis Maes.
In collaboration with Cinematek.
