Maurice Jarre composed the score to the 1968 Isadora Duncan biopic, ISADORA (also known as The Loves of Isadora) starring Vanessa Redgrave. Lyrics were added Don Black.

Here singer Stephen Van Dorn and pianist Mike Farrell run through a first-look sight-reading of the tune.



LOVES OF ISADORA (Isadora- Theme from) French lyrics by Pierre Delanoe/English lyrics by Don Black


Here is a link to a checklist of Sheet Music from which this was chosen.

This is why all film music should be sung. Nice attempt and a ballad like that which is very common in film scores is great for a voice to sing

Re: "This is why all film music should be sung. Nice attempt and a ballad like that which is very common in film scores is great for a voice to sing"

Which makes me think of something I mentioned a few weeks ago elsewhere on this site, that many years ago Sarah Brightman was so enamored of the principal theme of "The Mission" that she repeatedly begged composer Ennio Morricone to allow her to turn it into a song. He kept refusing, but she persisted, and said that she must have worn him down, because he finally relented and allowed her to do so. And the song, christened "Nella Fantasia," heard in her "Eden" concerts and album of the same name, is miraculous and has become a standard for crossover artists. (It's also referred to as "Gabriel's Oboe.") While my first love is classical music, I still feel that soundtracks will outlast much of what now passes as popular music. Just look at this site and all these members who are clamoring for the best recordings and the best performances of music that may have been composed over 80 years ago. Steiner, Korngold, Rosza, Herrmann, Young, Arlen, Tiomkin, Waxman, Newman ... the list goes on and on, and we are here to not just preserve them but to perhaps create a renaissance for them.

TO RON- I surely hope film music will outlast the popular music. Because if popular music deserves to last a long time , for sure film music does.
