Press Release from Alhambra:
In seven seasons with a total of 40 episodes, one of the most successful Swiss television series was first broadcast from 2013 to 2019: DER BESTATTER. With the same regular cast (e.g. Mike Müller, Barbara Terpoorten, Reto Stalder), a feature film was released for the first time on April 6, 2023 as a supplement to this under the title THE UNDERTAKER - THE MOVIE.
Raphael Benjamin Meyer composed the music for all episodes of the series as well as for the film - and in the case of the film was also able to work with the Budapest Art Orchestra under the baton of Peter Pejtsik. In addition to the popular main theme, Raphael also integrated playful melodies, grim waltz sounds and dramatic suspense music into his compositions, among others. Also included is the impressive song "Ay Amor" by the Swiss band LA NEFERA, which is set between jazz, pop, rap and South American sounds.
We at Alhambra Records are very happy to further complete the Undertaker-discography after the 3-CD set with the music from season 1 - 5 and the Raphael Benjamin Meyer sampler "Music for Games, Film, Television and Concert Hall". Running time of the album is about 67 minutes, the booklet contains 16 pages with images from the film and a text (in German language) by Raphael Benjamin Meyer.
