Riz Ortolani's Un Dramma Borghese
21-Nov-2019 - DigitSoundtracks will release the complete score by Riz Ortolani for the film Un Dramma Borghese (aka Mimi) for the first time on CD. Riz Ortolani composed an orchestral soundtrack with a recurring main theme resembling a children’s lullaby which was written for the adolescent girl in the film. It has a dramatic introduction and is then expanded on with the harpsichord and reprised in different versions with oboe, harp and guitar, giving it a touch of magic. The rustic atmosphere is often interrupted by dramatic and mysterious passages, as well as baroque music in a pop arrangement. They were able to access the masters in stereo from the original recording session and use everything that had been recorded. For more info and ordering, visit DigitSoundtracks.

Philippe Sarde's The Tenant
23-Oct-2019 - Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present the premiere vinyl release of the iconic score by Philippe Sarde (Ghost Story, Lord of the Flies, Pirates, César et Rosalie) for a Roman Polanski horror tale The Tenant. One of the most important aspects of The Tenant is that it was the first collaboration between Polanski and composer Philippe Sarde—who was only 28 years old when he composed the score. The music featured a complicated orchestration that required an unusual arrangement of the orchestra. The use of crystal harmonica gives the score a disturbing and bleak character. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.
Lorne Balfe's Gemini Man
21-Oct-2019 - La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the original motion picture score to the big-screen sci-fi action feature film Gemini Man, starring Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clive Owen, and directed by Ang Lee.

Produced by the composer and mastered by Rueben Cohen, this special CD release is limited to 3000 copies. For more info and ordering, visit La-La Land Records.
Zbigniew Preisner's Shi Gu
17-Oct-2019 - Caldera Records present Zbigniew Preisner’s score for the motion picture Lost And Love (Shi Gu). It tells a harrowing (and apparently true) story of loves lost. The love described in the film is the love between parents and their children. For her feature film debut, Sanyuan Peng chose Zbigniew Preisner as composer who wrote one of his very best works, a delicate and yet passionate score which is rich in themes and variations. Its most prominent theme is – fittingly – a lullaby which opens the album. It is a melody which recurs throughout the score in different metamorphoses. For more info and ordering, visit Caldera Records.
Steven Price's Suicide Squad
16-Oct-2019 - Music on Vinyl has released the second version of Suicide Squad on vinyl.

They are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences. The score is written and composed by Steven Price, who recently won Academy, Bafta and several other awards for his "Gravity" score. For more info and ordering, visit Music on Vinyl.
Nelson Riddle's Rough Cut
1-Oct-2019 - Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present the world premiere release of Nelson Riddle’s score for Rough Cut. The plot is about two sophisticated jewel thieves joining forces to steal $30 million in uncut jewels. Despite a continuous exchange of quips, they eventually become romantically involved. Since Siegel’s usual composer, Lalo Schifrin, was committed to another project, he turned instead to Riddle, who provides Rough Cut with a delicious, elegant, punchy and sparkling score. Riddle’s original score features delicious bossa-novas, elegant jazz atmospheres, romantic moods, brilliant suspense music, a beautiful love theme and incidental music in the best Mancini style. A selection of Duke Ellington standards was also brilliantly arranged and included in the score. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.

Stelvio Cipriani's Second Spring
12-Sep-2019 - Chris' Soundtrack Corner presents for the first time the complete soundtrack to Second Spring (Der Zweite Frühling). The entire score to Second Spring was a mix of original music and library tracks by the Italian composer Stelvio Cipriani. He had actually composed a fairly extensive original score for the film, but, unaccountably, most of it was replaced by library tracks for the film's final mix, with only a few cues from the original score remaining in the film. As a result, the film score is quite a curiosity; its soundtrack remains effective and quite lovely, with both the previously-used tracks and the bits of original cues left in the film providing a melodic wash of romantic fragrance and appealing soft jazz in the composer's finest form. Chris' Soundtrack Corner is pleased to make the Second Spring soundtrack available, especially its previously unheard tracks, for the first time. For more info and ordering, visit Chris' Soundtrack Corner.

The flashbacks to her younger days slowly reveal how she got involved in espionage through the machinations of the charming Max. The score balances between Joan's past and present, finding a tonal language that sits well with the story of Joan in the 1930s without losing the sense of the story being told and remembered by the older Joan.
