25 Ans De Musique De Cinéma Français
29-Jul-2010 - Disques Cinémusique has released 25 Ans De Musique De Cinéma Français, the digital premiere of the complete LP album 25 Ans De Musique De Cinéma, released in 1956. This 40 minutes anthology, produced by Lucien Adès, revisits some of the best French scores from famous composers like Maurice Jaubert, Georges Auric, Maurice Jarre, Joseph Kosma and Darius Milhaud, to name a few, from the beginning of the thirties to the mid-fifties - the dawn of the New Wave. Serge Baudo conducts with brio and the high fidelity recording, painstakingly restored, shows to advantage these seminal works. A short vocal introduction by Adès himself precedes each track of this survey of an era and a scenery that generate much nostalgia. Extras are additional excerpts from Maurice Leroux’ original soundtrack to Albert Lamorisse's Le Ballon rouge (The Red Balloon), a few dances by Maurice Jaubert from René Clair's Quatorze Juillet (Bastille Day) and four songs by Joseph Kosma and Jaubert. The 16-page fully bilingual booklet includes liner notes from the original album and a new presentation by DCM producer Clément Fontaine.
