The album is probably not for faint hearted pop lovers, but those with a penchant for gothic ambience, grandmothers music box, steam driven fairground organs and the incantations of catholic schoolgirls will be delighted by film and score alike. The various motifs, from chiming magical earrings to malevolent carnival tunes illuminate the mind of it’s heroine, depicting a girl’s awakening from innocent child to a young woman’s wider, more abstruse world of experience.
Lubos Fiser's album Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. 2018 marks ten years since Finders Keepers Records first liberated Lubos Fiser's immaculate soundtrack music for Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders ("Valerie A Týden Divu") from the vaults of the Barrandov Studio in Prague.
Director: Jaromil Jireš. Starring: Valerie, Elsa, Grandmother and others. A girl on the verge of womanhood finds herself in a sensual fantasyland of vampires, witchcraft, and other threats in this eerie and mystical movie daydream. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders serves up an endlessly looping, nonlinear fairy tale, set in a quasi-medieval landscape. Ravishingly shot, enchantingly scored, and spilling over with surreal fancies, this enticing phantasmagoria from director Jaromil Jireš is among the most beautiful oddities of the Czechoslovak New Wave.

Album release of this delicately haunting and sacred score to Jaromil Jires' essential Eastern European ue-witch-flick 'Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders'. It has taken Andy Votel almost 12 years to finally get his grubby vinyl-magnetic mits on the original studio recordings of this previously unreleased score. Lubos Fiser provides what is perhaps the greatest musical score of all the maligned Czech New Wave feature-films with a gossamer-fragile blend of pastoral-orchestral folk songs and clockwork harpsichords. From the very first delicate chord to the final crescendo this joyous sound is as addictive as the bizarre imagery seen in this seldom celebrated cinematic gem. Tracklist: 1. The Magic Yard 2. Talk With Grandmother 3. The Letter 4. The Sermon 5. Losing The Way 6. The Visit 7. The Work of Death 8. Dinner 9. Dense Smoke 10.
