Florian Fricke

23 February 1944 – 29 December 2001

At its highest level film music becomes an equal player in the drama, with a particular capacity to engage the viewer’s feelings and insinuate the deep, unspoken meanings of a film. The early masterpieces of Werner Herzog, such as Aguirre Zorn Gottes, shorn of the music of Florian Fricke, would be as impoverished as Hitchcock without Herrmann, Fellini without Rota or Leone without Morricone. Fricke’s early death was a great loss to the true art of cinematic Music.
