SPOTIFY PLAYLIST - Music from the films of Werner Herzog

Compiled by Luca Giovanardi. This is the result of a thorough - sometimes painful, always rewarding - exploration across Herzog’s whole filmography, researching the music used to accompany the films, in order to compile a carefully selected collection. Every effort to trace the exact versions used by the German filmmaker has been made. Unfortunately, not everything is available on Spotify and some of the wonderful music featured in Herzog’s films (notably, Ernst Reijseger’s and Richard Thompson’s scores for some of the early 2000s movies) was impossible to find on the service. In some rare cases I have opted for slightly different versions, if close enough to the originals in spirit and musicality. The playlist follows a chronological order, from Herzog’s debut ‘Lebenszeichen’ to his latest films. A detailed tracklist including the film titles for each piece can be found here.
