On 10.14.08, the soundtrack of "When Nietzsche Wept" – music composed by Sharon, was released by moviescoremedia. The album is available on ITUNES and AMAZON. MovieScore Media president, Mikael Carlsson, wrote: "Some scores are worth fighting for - for more than a year we have been working on acquiring the rights to release this immensely beautiful orchestral score by the hugely talented Sharon Farber. Based on the novel by Irvin D. Yalom, scoring When Nietzsche Wept was a dream project for the composer, who had read the book as a teenager and immediately fell in love with it.

 

 

Starring Armand Assante as famous philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, the film features a score that is filled of strong themes (often presented on piano or solo woodwinds) and rich orchestrations. Although restrained emotional writing forms the backbone of the score, it also features several elegant scherzos as well as darker action-orientated material. The album ends beautifully with Sharon Farber's arrangement of Nietzsche's song 'Hymnus an das leben' featuring soprano Ayana Haviv and the composer on piano."

  • On June 13th, Director Gloria Greenfield presented the Los Angeles premier of the film UNMASKED- JUDEOPHOBIA, scored by Sharon. The film deals with the roots of anti-Semitism in the Christian and Islamic worlds and its effect on humanity. The moving and at times terrifying score accompanies the film and brings about an added dimension to this important and difficult issue. Ms. Greenfield has already asked Sharon to compose the music for her next film as well. www.unmaskedthemovie.com
  • Sharon's acclaimed piece, Translucent Rock, has been chosen to be performed by the Culver City Symphony Orchestra. The piece, commissioned by The Israeli Chamber Orchestra is originally written for chamber orchestra and was re- orchestrated for a full symphony orchestra by Sharon for the concert, which took place on 1/29/2011a. The historic concert was dedicated solely to Women Composers, many of them living and creating new music today.
