Interview by Paul Salfen
Film Synopsis: Cyrano de Bergerac dazzles everyone with his ferocious wordplay and brilliant swordplay. However, he’s convinced his appearance renders him unworthy of the affections of the luminous Roxanne, a devoted friend who’s in love with someone else.
Aaron and Bryce Dessner reinterpreted reinterpret the score and songs crafted forCyrano, for a musical drama of the same name directed by Joe Wright. The Cincinnati natives are two of the multi-instrumentalists at the heart of The National, the Grammy-winning indie rock band fronted by Matt Berninger. They started composing for film 10 years ago.
