This is the soundtrack to Liz Garbus’ celebrated film about the life of troubled chess genius Bobby Fischer, ‘Bobby Fischer Against the World’.
I wrote the score around themes by Bach keyboard works. You can sample the full album here. Thanks for listening,
Can’t wait to see the movie!
The music captures so much the spirit of a tormented man.
Love the cover too!
Simply amazing soundtrack, hopefully documentary will stand up to that standard. Many thanks for Your ingenious work. Philip You are a true musical inspiration to me!!! regards Artur
This is fantastic. Will it be available on itunes soon?
It’s on Bandcamp… I may well put it on iTunes too..!
As he travels the globe with manager Paul Marshall (Michael Stuhlbarg) and coach Father Bill Lombardy (Peter Sarsgaard), Fischer crushes the world’s top players in the relentless pursuit of his ultimate quarry: indomitable Soviet chess grandmaster Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber).
