I’ve recently recorded this live piano version of “A Life Lived” from The Windermere Children in my studio.
Whilst the production was still filming, I was so moved after reading the script for the first time – so sat at the piano and tried to put down some of the emotions that came out; thinking about how those children must have felt arriving in Windermere after being freed from Auschwitz and Theresienstadt weeks before. It’s not often that a script can move you to tears like that!
A shortened version appears in the end credits of the film, but the version on the album has a solo cello line performed by the brilliant Maddie Cutter.
