Georges Delerue's World Premiere..!
In the 1990s, Cyril Durand-Roger and Laurent Lafarge contributed to Music Box : pellicule sur écoute,
a french magazine devoted to film soundtracks, and intended for film music enthusiasts.
In top of writing record reviews, they interviewed film composers and directors, such as Philippe Sarde,
Lalo Schifrin, Vladimir Cosma, Gabriel Yared, Claude Sautet, Luc Besson, Alexandre Arcady, and so on.
Wiser for this experience, they quickened the pace, creating a french label devoted exclusively to
soundtracks : MUSIC BOX RECORDS. Its goal is to promote film music, producing unreleased
soundtracks, in complete versions. Each CD will be produced in limited edition, in a spirit of collection.
The label is proud to announce for the first time available on CD, the World premiere of 2 complete
Georges Delerue scores: L'Incorrigible (The Incorrigible), directed by Philippe de Broca (1975)
together more than one hour of music.
The scores written for the movies of Philippe de Broca, whose qualities were long unknown to
cinema enthusiasts and even to fans of the music of Georges Delerue, always oscillate between
irony and tenderness.
The score of L’Incorrigible is light, always ironic, never redundant with the image. The music for
small orchestra takes tones sometimes of a detective movie, sometimes Andalusian, sometimes bucolic.
The music of Va Voir Maman, Papa Travaille contains a romantic “modal color” characteristic of the
work of Georges Delerue during the same period. This score is enhanced with several “pop-rock”
pieces which sends back to what Georges Garvarentz, Michel Magne, Michel Colombier
or François de Roubaix would produce at the same period.
The CD contains 63 minutes of music, featuring 15 minutes of previously unreleased music.
New sequencing and new sound mastering.
