New from Quartet Records...
James Newton Howard - Intersection
Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present the expanded release of James Newton Howard’s (Maleficent, Wyatt Earp, Dinosaur, The Price of Tides) original soundtrack to Intersection, the 1994 dramatic-romantic Paramount Pictures remake of a
famous 1970 French film, Les choses de la vie. Intersection stars Richard Gere, Sharon Stone, Lolita Davidovich and Martin Landau; Mark Rydell directed the film.
James Newton Howard provides a beautiful, elegant score – one of his most romantic from the nineties – including stylish passages for harmonica performed by Toots Thielemans. Previously released by Milan Records in 1994, this expanded edition includes all the music composed by Howard for the film, presented in film order and fully remastered from the original recording sources provided by Paramount Pictures. The package includes a 20-page full-color booklet with liner notes by Andy Dursin.
Alan Silvestri - Soapdish
Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present the expanded release of Alan Silvestri’s (Critical Condition, Forrest Gump, The Mummy Returns) original score to Soapdish, a 1991 hilarious comedy about the backstage “drama” on a TV soap opera. The film stars Sally Field, Kevin Kline, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Sue and Whoopi Goldberg; the movie was directed by Michael Hoffman.
Alan Silvestri’s fully orchestral work provides one of his most elaborate and memorable comedy scores. It gives a fresh, dynamic sound to the film, dominated by Caribbean rhythms – including a beautiful love theme, some action music, ironic suspense cues and fanfares for TV awards.
Soapdish was originally released by Varese Sarabande in 1991, but Quartet's edition is about double the length of that previous album. It includes everything Silvestri composed and recorded for the film, presented in film order and fully remastered from the original recording sources provided by Paramount Pictures. The package includes a 12-page full-color booklet with liner notes by Andy Dursin.
