A Passage To India
Quartet Records, in collaboration with Tadlow Music and Capitol Records, proudly
presents the complete classic score for A Passage To India, the last film directed by
David Lean, composed by Maurice Jarre, Academy Award winner for
Best Original Score in 1985. The album has been expanded by about 20 minutes
from the original Capitol release. It features the complete score that Jarre prepared
for the film, including many cues that were not used in the final cut (such as the music
Jarre composed and recorded for the Marabar Caves sequence), as well as
an alternate main title and a lot of exotic Indian music composed
by Jarre in the same style as The Man Who Would Be King.
The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes
Quartet Records and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer present the world-premiere release of the classy,
unforgettable music composed by Miklós Rózsa for Billy Wilder´s classic
The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes. All of Miklós Rózsa’s music is worth preserving.
This premiere “archival edition” of the original tracks of The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes,
extraordinarily performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under the
composer’s baton, was a labor of love for everyone involved. The immortal music of Rózsa
deserves nothing less. The lavishly designed package includes a 28-page booklet
with liner notes and track-by-track analysis by Frank K. DeWald.
The Beastmaster
Quartet Records, in collaboration with Gruppo Sugar, proudly presents the premiere
expanded CD release of Lee Holdridge’s epic symphonic score from the popular fantasy
adventure film The Beastmaster, directed by Don Coscarelli in 1982.
Quartet’s expanded score assembly was created from the surviving first-generation
CAM master tapes, vaulted in mint condition at Gruppo Sugar, and differs from both
the original album and the music as heard in the film. The assembly features much music
that was cut from the film, as well as several alternate takes and compositions.
The score is presented in film order, as originally conceived by Holdridge.
