Reynold da Silva's Silva Screen Records has been constructing a series of "essential" collections of major film composers' scores usually by making new recordings of portions of those scores or compiling recordings previously made for other projects, most often employing the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. For this Michel Legrand album, the label has actually enlisted Legrand as conductor of the Flemish Radio Orchestra (whose contributions are not noted until you examine the CD booklet), with a few additional jazz musicians, plus Legrand himself on piano and (during the extended suite from The Go-Between) harpsichord. Still, these are new recordings, made in December 2004, and should not be confused with actual soundtrack recordings. Legrand oversees excerpts from some of his most popular scores, leaning heavily on the major themes, such as "I Will Wait for You" from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, "Theme from Summer of '42," and "The Windmills of Your Mind" from The Thomas Crown Affair.

Label: Silva Screen | Rel: 2007

This is very probably the best single-disc career review of Maestro Morricone's work. If you are interested in exploring the music of this great composer, look no futher for the perfect primer. Includes some of the very best from the late 60's through mid-80's. Excellent mastering and sound. Features classic themes from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly," "Once Upon A Time In The West," and "The Mission," and many other great themes. In fact, the themes included from "Moscow Farewell," "Lady Caliph," and "Dedicace," are among the Maestro's most beautiful melodies, and "For Love One Can Die," is very probably his most beautiful theme (I also love Milva's exquisite vocal version on DEDICATO A MILVA DA ENNIO MORRICONE), although "Chi Mai," also included here, is a very, very close second (Milva's vocal version of this one, on the aforementioned album, is simply stunning, as well).

HORTENSIA France

Composers : Georges Delerue Pierre Jansen Michel Legrand

Original soundtracks from Le Mépris (1963), L'Ainé des Ferchaux (1962) and L'Insoumis (1964). Has also Juste avant la nuit by Pierre Jansen and Cléo de 5 à 7 by Michel Legrand. This early release remains precious because it contains the most complete CD version of the somber L'Insoumis and the blusy L'Aîné des Ferchaux. Le Mépris is nearly complete. The two other soundtracks excerpts included, which are very different in style, also belong to the Nouvelle Vague period.

Rock / Pub Rock / New Wave / Singer-Songwriter

Graham Parker (born 18 November 1950) is an English singer-songwriter, who is best known as the lead singer of the popular British band Graham Parker & the Rumour. Despite only moderate commercial success, Parker's energetic performances - along with the wittily class-conscious spirit of his debut album Howlin' Wind - preceded the arrival of punk rock and new wave music. In addition, his quirky-blue-collar image is often believed to be a major influence on the public persona of many British musicians, most notably Elvis Costello, Paul Weller and Joe Jackson.
