That must be Laisse tes mains sur mes hanches. According amazon.com in France there is a CD, but it appears to be Talgorn and various artists. No track listing. Anyone have any idea how much Talgorn is on it?

Roger


I heard this is a short score (20 minutes or so). There was another composer attached to the picture before Frederic talgorn.
Any chances of Intrada doing an album with Mr Talgorn in the next future ? (edge of sanity would be terrific). Thanks.

I listened to Delta Force 2 again last night, still holds up - guess the CBS LP came out in '84. The notes also mention a mini series he did around the same time, whose name escapes me....anyone want to talk about that?

Best,
Sean


Actually, I think the CBS album "Frederic Talgorn" was also issued on CD. But possibly the rarest CD featuring his music is the promo from The Olympic Winter Games in 1992. Great Orchestral Stuff smile
The mini series was Trakal.

And you know this how exactly?

Are is this just a wild guess on your part?

My source is close enough to Frederic Talgorn to be perfectly reliable. I only wanted to share these informations with you. Believe it or not, it's not my problem.

PS : Sorry for the late reply, I was in London for the Goldsmith concerts.

Well, I've worked directly with him. And I say your source is BS.

I'd like to toss in my 2 cents here, since I just received my first Talgorn album, ROBOTJOX. I think I may be one of the few fools who actually saw this film and I remembered Talgorn's score quite well through it all (the stop-motion robot effects were pretty nifty, too). Anyway, I was blown away hearing this on disc, the brashness of his themes, the great color in his orchestration and the rip-roaring battle cues. Quite a ride. I agree that the recording is not the greatest, but it did not disract from the enjoyment at all.

I would like to seek out more of his work, wasn't FORTRESS released as a promo?

Fortress...another one of those hokey B-movies that are fun because they aren't so good...hehehe. Talgorn's music is fantastic!! He is definitely a great talent in the film music community, both as composer and conductor (I agree with JJH, he's done top-notch work for Varese). Heavy Metal 2000 is my favorite of his works (that I've heard).

So, for further Talgorn recommendations, people are all fully behind FORTRESS, DELTA FORCE 2 and HEAVY METAL 2? Can anyone describe DELTA FORCE 2 musically? Fully orchestral, thematic, atonal, etc?

The album for Delta Force 2 is broken up into two suites. There is a suite of electronic music and a suite of orchestral music. And there is a song by Lee Greenwood on there as well. As per usual, some great music from Talgorn on this CD, particularly in the orchestral suite.

You should try to get LE BRASIER from Alhambra. This is Frederic Talgorn's best score to date with Edge of Sanity.
A new score is available on CD as I mentioned earlier. It's a french film "Laisse tes Mains sur Mes Hanches" Capitol 7243 583867 2.

A great little score... Kind of like John Williams' scores for Stanley & Iris and The Accidental Tourist, don't you think?

Agreed on Le Brasiere. It's a fantastic score, definitely one of Talgorn's best efforts. Both Le Brasiere and Delta Force are out of print, aren't they?

OK, so I finally picked up FORTRESS, DELTA FORCE 2, HEAVY METAL 2000 and EPIC MOVIE ADVENTURES - wow, quite the haul! All of these are stellar, such marvelously rich textures in his orchestrations. HEAVY METAL 2K especially has such a rich, lush tone and yet is as thematic as something like ROBOTJOX. Someone who just wants a BIG theme followed by variations may not enjoy it, but for others this score is a must have. It's large, expansive, expressive, engaging, colorful and just simply a great listen!

What I particularly love about Talgorn is how he creates a theme and then works with it. Listen to any score, be it FORTRESS or HEAVY METAL, and you can here him integrate the theme into the score all over the place, but if you aren't paying close attention, you won't notice it there. A true composer.

Agreed, Roger, it will be a joy to unravel his music through repeated listenings, just to get at those buried thematic references.

I know it's the enternal question of fans of underrated film composers, but why isn't Talgorn getting more work? Who's his agent? Why isn't he scoring THE HULK?

Tom, how did you get EPIC MOVIE ADVENTURES, DEWOLFE Music licences its cds only to medias.....?

I wish Mr Talgorn would be scoring THE HULK.
Difficult to say why Frederic Talgorn is not working on big budget films, tough question in fact ....
As far as I know he left the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency in the early nineties and then moved to Vasili Vangelos' agency.

His new score for the french film is very lyrical, very well done, I wouldn't say it is kind of like Stanley and Iris and Accidental Tourist. It's definitely a Talgorn score, at the top of his art.

I think you can still get LE BRASIER and DELTA FORCE. Try Screen Archives.

Um, well, I hope I don't get anyone in trouble for that one, govenor! I got it from a friend in California who has access to much of these rare discs, but I didn't know it was an agency-only promo. I was just looking for DELTA FORCE 2 and FORTRESS and he offered it as an extra special gift.

I have just bought Delta Force 2 and as I listen to the music I keep looking at the cover, because the score does not surely sound like a Chuck Norris film!!!!!
The music reminds me of a intimate drama or something of that sort, except of course for the rousing march.
The orchestral part of the score is very somber very, subdued, it sounds like classical!!!!
I also saw in the same shop Le Brasier, which I'm thinking of picking up next.
Frederic Talgorn is truly a gifted composer!!!

"His ANGELS IN THE ENDZONE is first rate (although it's owned by Disney, so don't hold your breath on a CD)"
-----------------------------
Hey Roger, re Angels in the Endzone...and your comment years and years ago.
Now's as good a time as any wink

I recently got Les Enfants De Timpelbach and am enjoying it immensely. It feels like getting a new John Williams score. And a really good one at that!

I've never been let down by Talgorn. His name is a stamp of quality as far as I'm concerned.
