Despite the gap between albums, Bertelmann hasn’t been twiddling his thumbs these last
years, not that he was ever drawn to that. All Quiet On The Western Front was just the latest
in a rush of productivity precipitated by the success of 2016’s Oscar-nominated
collaboration with Dustin O’Halloran on the score to Garth Davis’ Lion. He and O’Halloran
have worked on a further six projects, most recently the Kate Winslet-starring Ammonite.
His catalog now includes almost 50 film and TV scores, with 2018’s Patrick Melrose,
starring Benedict Cumberbatch, again nominated for a BAFTA, which in turn led him to
working again with its director, Edward Berger, on All Quiet On The Western Front.
Now, Bertelmann is back as HAUSCHKA, and PHILANTHROPY lives up to its name.
