Order CD

Ulysses' Gaze was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.

Ulysses' Gaze, the album, is the third ECM recording to feature music written by Eleni Karaindrou for her countryman Angelopoulos. The first edition, issued under the title Music For Films focused primarily upon the director's great Trilogy of Silence (Voyage To Cythera, The Beekeeper, and Landscape In The Mist). The second presented music written for The Suspended Step Of The Stork, Angelopoulos' critically-heralded 1991 film.
