Jean Prodromidès' Le Voyage En Ballon
10-Aug-2009 - Disques Cinémusique has released the most complete CD version of the music composed by Jean Prodromidès for Albert Lamorisse's Le Voyage En Ballon(Stowaway In The Sky), as well as the complete soundtrack of Paul Paviot's short feature, Un Jardin Public(1955) centered on the mime Marcel Marceau. The huge orchestral and chorus score of Le Voyage En Ballon contributed much to the movie success when released in 1960. The score had many versions on vinyl. In Europe, a few excerpts were released on an EP while an LP - a much less popular medium at that time - offered 30 minutes of music, including a version with an extensive narration. In the late '90's, the soundtrack to Le Voyage en ballon was reissued on CD in Japan in its short version with disappointing sound quality and inserts. So here is at last the unabridged, remastered version, achieved with the collaboration of the composer, an 82 years old gentleman who lives in Paris and is recipient of many distinctions for his outstanding artistic contribution. Included is a 16-page booklet.
