                                                Description:

                                                The story of FINDING NEVERLAND is, for sure, sentimental. We have children, fantasy and animals, and explore love, death, devotion and most of all, inspiration. It should be sentimental and in fact, it better be!

                                                By necessity, the music should convey the same emotional story - but must not repeat it. Jan’s brilliance is his ability to add new emotional complexity to scenes rather than merely underlining what’s already there. He provides his own distinct comment on the emotion and events in the film, and therein enriches it. Working with Jan, our director Marc Forster and editor Matt Chesse was a tremendous experience - as was the recording sessions in London.

                                                A highlight of the recording was pianist Leszek Mozdzer on our final session on the last day. He performed the piano overdubs meticulously, with great precision and speed. As we approached the final cue, I asked Jan what were going to do with the additional several hours he insisted we schedule with Leszek. Jan grinned, scratched his beard and laughed his most mysterious laugh – "ah, just wait and see" he replied.

                                                I spent the next two hours stunned, listening to Leszek perform improvised variations on our themes. Speaking wildly in Polish, accompanied with animated flourishes and gestures, Jan and Leszek worked and re-worked the themes and created music so rich and expressive that it felt as if the entire orchestra was performing. We included several of these pieces on the CD, as they are an indisputably part of the music created for our film.

                                                Jan told me that he endeavors to create a soundtrack album that is not simply a rote replica of the music as it appears in the film, but rather a listening experience that will stand on its own. I think he accomplished this, and much more.
