THE TATTOOED TORAH (AUTOGRAPHED*) (CD)
Composed by: Daniel Alcheh

*FIRST 30 COPIES SOLD WILL GET AN AUTOGRAPHED BOOKLET.

The Tattooed Torah is an animated short film based on the book by Marvell Ginsburg that has been educating children about the Holocaust for over 30 years.

Featuring a riveting and beautiful score by composer Daniel Alcheh. For 2 decades Composer Daniel Alcheh (pronounced al-SHEA) has written music for concert halls, feature films and animation, documentaries, TV shows and countless commercials. Along with producer Elliot Hunt, he owns the music and audio-post house alcheh&hunt. He is also the co-founder of the music production unit Sonic Vault, which offers music, sound design and voice-over services to international content producers of kids animation and live action.

His feature film work began In 2001, when he was brought aboard as score producer for Dover Kosashvili's feature film Late Marriage, the highest-grossing Israeli film of the decade, one of Entertainment Weekly's Ten Best Films of 2002 and Newsweek's Top 15 Films of 2002. Among his recent scores are the Chinese 3D sci-fi feature Impossible, which stars several of the China's biggest stars and opened on 20,000 screens, and The Trouble With Bliss, starring Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Lucy Liu (Elementary, Charlie's Angels), Peter Fonda (Easy Rider), Brie Larson (Room, 21 Jump Street) and Chris Messina (Vicky Cristina Barcelona). The film's score was released on the Sony Classical label. His upcoming score is The Tattooed Torah - an animated, holocaust tale based on a children's book and narrated by veteran actor Ed Asner. Supported by Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation, the educational film has been dubbed and translated into several languages and features a grand score written for large orchestra and choir. Performed by THE BOWTIE ORCHESTRA and CHOIR, Vladimir Podgoretsky, Director. -NFN MUSIC

I am the son of a Holocaust survivor, and both my parents’ families perished in the Nazi camps. So I was at once excited and apprehensive when asked to score The Tattooed Torah. This was more personal than just a scoring job, and I wanted to be sure I could do justice to this touching story that spans generations and continents. After conversations with director Marc Bennett about different instrumentation options I started sketching and decided that by means of large orchestra and choir I could convey the beauty, pain and inextinguishable spirit of European Jewry during those times.

The world is always facing challenges of one kind or another, and whenever economic, social and racial tensions heat up anywhere, antisemitism seems to appear part and parcel, rearing its ugly head. As the last survivors pass away, the importance of Holocaust education for kids and the need to preserve the memory of what happened in Europe under the Nazi regime is as relevant as ever.

It was a joy and a true privilege to work with Marc, producer Lisa Efferess, the Kopin family and the whole team. We all gained an enduring friendship and hope the music reaches the hearts of children and adults everywhere and lives on with the story of the little Tattooed Torah. -Daniel Alcheh, June 2020
