It seems there is a mistake in the PR. June the 3rd is a Sunday.

So release date must be June the 4th.

Did they announce the third title, as mentioned in the OP? Or were they referring to the suite on the Delerue?

I don't think I can wait over a month...

TOPAZ cover from Facebook page:



TOPAZ (locking) / Maurice Jarre - Alfred Hitchcock (exit June 3, 2012) in 1969, the great Alfred Hitchcock delivers one of his secret dreams: turn a realistic James Bond, by adapting the best-selling Topaz (locking), novel of espionage where it comes to unmask a traitor in the pay of Moscow in French secret service. A solid plot, an international cast of the exteriors shot in New York, Washington, Paris, Copenhagen and Havana: there is the old master as a composer, to replace Bernard Herrmann, with which it is permanently blurred on the torn curtain. This will be Maurice Jarre, then installed in Los Angeles for five years and already doubly citizen. "I was worried, even impressed with the idea of working with such sacred monster, noted jar." "The footprint of Bernard Herrmann was so strong that I was wondering if I would be able to take over." Upon arrival, Topaz, is a pure concentrate of the talent of Maurice Jarre: unusual orchestral Meccano (ondes Martenot, zither, synthesizer, accordion), intoxicating melodies to obsession, diving sharply in Cuban folk rhythms. It is especially a great partition unknown, where the share of melancholy, sad lyricism outweighs the side thriller and espionage. Specially restored from the original master tapes, Topaz music is published here for the first time in full. Until today, it was one of the last large partitions of Hitchcock original disk. A must for aficionados of the master of suspense and Maurice Jarre.

Booklet: interview with Maurice Jarre 14 beaches, 47 minutes of music (Translated by Bing)

The Delerue is a nice cover, the Jarre....not so much. Very much looking forward to this one.

I'd like to pair-up L'Africain with an Écoutez le Cinéma release by Colombier.

I already have the Écoutez le Cinéma Grand Prix w Cannabis by Gainsbourg.

Any other suggestions? (I'm using Urs' list as a reference.) Thanks in advance.

[edit]Of course I will have no choice but to wait for my FrancoFrenz to wake...

Hi lexedo,

by far my favourite Colombier (and favourite Écoutez CD) of all is the triple feature L'Héritier / Le Hasard et la Violence / L'Alpagueur [Écoutez le Cinéma #25]. If you like melodic funk/rock/pop film scores from the mid-1970s, you cannot go wrong with that one. It's that CD that got me hooked on the whole Écoutez series in the first place.

Thanks, I'm glad you like the list. I just updated it with the information available so far about the upcoming releases as well as some missing data about previous releases. Will update the Excel and PDF file only tomorrow though.

the opening March in Topaz is that a Jarre original or a old Russian march, i know at the beginning of the film Russian Roulette-75- George Segal, they played that famous Russian march.

The third album is "Le baron de munchausen & La flûte à six schtroumphs" by Michel Legrand. Two animation movies...

GREAT news, even if that Baron is a poor animated movie directed by Jean Image.

Interesting! But that's not the one I was thinking about. Perhaps in a later batch.

EDIT: And thanks Urs Lesse. Your list is very useful in filling the few gaps that remain in my Écoutez le Cinéma CD's.

I don't believe the third cd will be Michel Legrand animation scores , this is what says Eric Demarsan in french :

Plusieurs de mes B.O. vont sortir (ou ressortir) bientôt sous les labels "écouter le cinéma" chez Universal, collection dirigée par Stéphane Lerouge, et Music box records, Laurent Lafardde et Cyril Durand-Roger.

and in english : Many scores will be released in a few times on the label " Ecoutez le cinéma" at Universal, and at Music Box Records .

Just trying to figure out what has recently been released in the series and what does not belong in there.
Can anyone CONFIRM if the release pictured and linked to below is an Écoutez le Cinéma ! release? Amazon's and FNAC's descriptions state it was released by Emarcy and Universal just like the whole series, but I have not seen it explicitly classified as belonging into this series.
