Composer Jeremy Turner has scored the Netflix documentary series “Five Came Back”, which premieres March 31, 2017.
From director Laurent Bouzereau’s website:
Adapted from Mark Harris’ best-selling book, “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War,” and directed by Laurent Bouzereau, the three-part docuseries tells the extraordinary story of how Hollywood changed World War II – and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the interwoven experiences of five filmmakers who interrupted their successful careers to serve their country, risk their lives and bring the truth back to the American people: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. To guide viewers through the different personalities, interweaving chronologies and globe-trotting locales, the Five Came Back team turned to the voices of five modern cinematic masters: Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo Del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan. Three-time Oscar-winner Meryl Streep provides the narration for Five Came Back.

For the music, composer Turner utilized the string and woodwind sections of the orchestra, along with James Ehnes, solo violinist, Randy Kerber, solo pianist, and himself on cello. The full list of players is after the pictures from the session. After the show premieres, we can add some live video from the session as well (so check back!)
