Music Box Records presents...
Les Visiteurs / L'Homme Qui Revient De Loin
This present edition pairs for the fist time two unreleased scores composed by Georges Delerue for the significant works of French director Michel Wyn: Gaston Leroux's adaptation of L’Homme Qui Revient De Loin (1972) and the sci-fi TV series Les Visiteurs (1980).
Georges Delerue's gift for melody and enormous versatility are once again demonstrated with these stunningly beautiful scores for orchestra featuring his beloved strings, solo flute, piano, harp and Austrian zither, an instrument of his predilection. Adventure, action, mystery, exoticism, romantic drama and flavorful source music for both scores!
This present edition is the first volume of coming CD releases dedicated to the television soundtracks composed by Georges Delerue.
Au Nom De Tous Les Miens
This international coproduction allowed Maurice Jarre to work again with a French director, a few times only after Gérard Vergez's Robinson Crusoe and Man Friday (Music Box Records MBR-020). The story of Au Nom De Tous Les Miens and Enrico’s direction inspires him an intensely melodramatic score for full orchestra with the singular tone of an accordion solist. Between lovely waltz, haughty march and cabaret or bar music, the score is especially driven by the strength of a typical main theme and its very emotional variations which reveal behind every strings line a true desire to live. Precise and concise in his interventions, as usual, Maurice Jarre worked for two different editings of the movie, the first one short (2h25) only intended for cinemas and released at the end of 1983, the other one (about 7 hours) broadcasted on French television at the beginning of year 1985.
Music Box Records proudly presents the most complete version to date, fully remastered, with additional music compared with the previous CD edition released already 18 years ago: it represents all the sequences scored by Maurice Jarre for both editings, including some source music which he signed himself.
