Maurice Jarre's Die Fälschung/Le Faussaire
18-Nov-2013 - A less known score, Die Fälschung, from Maurice Jarre makes its premiere on CD from the Canadian label Disques Cinémusique. Volker Schlöndorff’s Die Fälschung, released in 1981, follows a German reporter on a mission to Beirut to cover the ongoing conflict between Christians and Muslims. Maurice Jarre opts for a largely atonal score, but it is not unattractive for that. Though disconcerting at first glance, the cues quickly become enthralling and prove to be very efficient on a dramatic level. The synthesizer and a chorus occasionally support the orchestra dominated by brass. Jarre uses many exotic plucked instruments, as well as a wide array of percussion, providing local color throughout the score. All in all, Circle of Deceit will be a nice surprise for the composer’s fans. Limited edition of 500 licensed.
