Vladimir Cosma's La Galette Du Roi/Promis... Juré
28-Feb-2014 - Vladimir Cosma is known primarily as the grand master of comedic film music and it’s in this capacity that Disques Cinémusique presents two original soundtracks which have never before appeared on CD. For Jean-Michel Ribes’ La Galette Du Roi (The King’s Cake), released in 1986, Vladimir Cosma’s large orchestral score is appealing right from the first track. While the compositions remain simple, their melodic line and the quality and variety of their arrangements bear the stamp of an outstanding creator. For 1987 Jacques Monnet‘s Promis… Juré! (Yes, Cross My Heart!), Vladimir Cosma delivered a concise but highly melodic and richly orchestrated score. In addition to a large strings section, he uses uncommon instruments, quite appropriate for the setting: tin whistle, guitar, Jew’s harp, and especially the Northumbrian pipe. In short, this is vintage Cosma.
