Quartet Records is proud to present its two new releases:

MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD
Music Composed and Conducted by Georges Delerue
Limited Edition of 1200 units



World premiere release of the wonderful, radiant film score composed and conducted by Georges Delerue for MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD. Directed by Dick Richards (FAREWELL MY LOVELY) in 1979, the film starred Martin Sheen, Blythe Danner and Sebastian Dungan.

Written by Erich Segal (LOVE STORY) from his own novel, the plot centers on a professor of literature (Martin Sheen) – with a wife and two daughters – who learns he has a son. A few years earlier, while visiting France, he had an accident and then an affair with the doctor who treated him. Now she has died and he finds out about the son he never knew he had. When he tells his wife, she suggests they bring him to the States for the summer. The film explores how the boy’s presence affects their family.

The perfect choice for scoring this sensitive film was Frenchman Georges Delerue, composer of some of the most romantic and bittersweet film scores ever written (THE SOFT SKIN, TWO ENGLISH GIRLS, LE MÉPRIS, OUR MOTHER’S HOUSE, RICH AND FAMOUS). Favorite composer of two iconic French directors (François Truffaut and Philippe de Broca) and collaborator with many important European directors (Ken Russell, Jack Clayton, Jean-Luc Godard, Bernardo Bertolucci), Delerue moved from France to L.A. after winning his only Oscar (for the film “A LITTLE ROMANCE) in 1979. Starting in the eighties, he entered a new period focusing on American films – most of them romantic movies. The music written for MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD is undoubtedly one of the most memorable of these American scores, and an absolute treat for all Delerue fans.

The album contains Delerue’s complete score – including the beautiful song “Never Gone,” performed by Edie Lehmann – and a few alternate cues. The entire album was assembled from original multi-track stereo session masters vaulted at Paramount Pictures. The packaging includes a 12-page full color booklet with informative liner notes by Tim Greiving. MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD contains the essence of Delerue’s gift—beauty, sadness, romance—and remains an essential work from one of the finest composers who ever wrote for the screen.


LOS MUNDOS SUTILES
Music Composed by Pascal Gaigne
Limited Edition of 300 units



The latest collaboration between French composer Pascal Gaigne and director Eduardo Chapero-Jackson (after the film VERBO) is this sensitive documentary about the poetry of Antonio Machado.

As her final exam, Sira, a young dance-conservatory student, has to prepare a program about the legacy of Spanish poet Machado. The film delves into the life and work of the poet, featuring a cinematic blend of documentary and fiction. Biographical documentary research and the search for life experience of the Machado poems coexist in SUBTLE WORLDS. Not a trip into the past, the film connects the poet with our time.

Pascal Gaigne provides a surprisingly peaceful and spiritual score utilizing contemporary forms and written entirely for electronic ensemble. LOS MUNDOS SUTILES is one of Gaigne’s most sincere, special and personal works.

Both releases are available now on pre-order. The CDs will ship next Friday 16th.

Quartet is still good. Great music on both releases.

It's been a year since Quartet released Delerue's Women In Love on CD.
Are we getting another Delerue score from them next summer?

Will be ordering as soon as it appears on Moviemusic (need to combine it with a few other titles) but will be ordered. No need to listen to samples as a) it's Delerue and b) Quartet always do a fantastic job.

Thanks very much Quartet for this one. Hopefully there is more Delerue to come....

It's hard to believe that Los Mundos Sutiles is purely electronic. Samples are delightful.

Will have to wait to order it for the next week or so... unfortunately waiting for the payment to arrive from a few friends so I can order copies for them too, which won't arrive until monday, while I am leaving on Sunday morning for Poznan and probably won't get to PC until I get back home...

Hopefully it will still be available then...
1000 copies for such a major title seems to be quite low... but hard to predict anything nowadays.

Thanks again!!! A CD of Delerue is always a pleasure

L´ete meurtrier (for example)


Thanks again!!! A CD of Delerue is always a pleasure


According to Music Box Records, the original master tapes for ONE DEADLY SUMMER have yet to be located. But presumably the original LP album master exists which contains all the music in the film and the Delerue archives have yet to be checked.

I hope some company release "One deadly summer" soon. It´s a dark and beautiful score.

A great release indeed!! Bravo Quartet!

And speaking of Delerue... I read somewhere about plans for a new Revolution Francaise release, but can't remember now if it was Quartet or Music Box instead.

Does someone know something about that?? Perhaps Maleficio?

 
 Posted:   Aug 2, 2013 - 1:48 PM   
 By:   Maleficio   (Member)

Nope. Only that Music Box Records was looking into a potential reissue.

According to MBR, the Delerue archives have been checked. Nothing there... frown

Then the original LP album will do considering it has all the music in the film.

Man Woman and Child is a no brain purchase and I hope it sells well for Quartet.
