Quartet Records is glad to present its four new releases…





LA BELLE ET LA BÊTE (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST)
Music Composed and Conducted by Pierre Adenot

Eagerly anticipated new adaptation of the classic La Belle et la Bête (Beauty and the Beast), directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf) and starring Vincent Cassel, Lea Seydoux and André Dussollier.

Pierre Adenot (Paris, je t’aime, Les émotifs anonymes) provides a lush and heartwarming score (recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London), full of sweeping and colorful themes for orchestra and chorus.

The package includes a 16-page deluxe booklet, illustrated with film stills and featuring statements by Pierre Adenot and Christophe Gans. Available with two different booklet versions: French and English.





DELIRIOUS
Music Composed and Conducted by Cliff Eidelman
Limited Edition of 1000 units

Quartet Records and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer are proud to present the world premiere release of this luscious original score composed by Cliff Eidelman (Triumph of the Spirit, Crazy People, Star Trek VI) for Tom Mankiewicz’s comedy Delirious, starring John Candy and Mariel Hemingway.

The composer provides wondrously imaginative music – including action cues, romance, drama and comedy – creating an impeccably elegant score. After twenty-three years, this album deserves to be released!

Produced for Quartet Records by Cliff Eidelman (from his own DATs), this CD features the complete score in pristine stereo sound. The package includes a 12-page full-color booklet with liner notes by John Takis.





A TIME OF DESTINY
Music Composed, Orchestrated and Conducted by Ennio Morricone
Limited Edition of 1000 units

Quartet Records, in collaboration with Virgin Records/Universal Music Special Markets, presents the long-awaited remastered reissue of one of Ennio Morricone’s best scores of the eighties, comparable in many ways to his masterpiece, The Mission.

A Time of Destiny was a 1988 film directed by Gregory Nava and starring William Hurt, Timothy Hutton, Melissa Theo, Stockard Channing and Francisco Rabal. The story was based on Giuseppe Verdi’s La forza del destino. For this operatic story about war, love, revenge and family, Morricone wrote a radiant, passionate score for orchestra and chorus, featuring one of his most unforgettable love themes (“Love and Dreams”).

Because the film master tapes could not be located, Quartet offers a remastered reissue (with much improved sound) of the original album program released by Virgin Records in 1989, conceived and produced by Morricone with his usual good taste. Fortunately, every major cue is represented on this CD, and only a small number of short cues and variations have been lost. The package includes a 12-page full-color booklet with liner notes by Tim Greiving.





FIN DE SEMANA AL DESNUDO
Music Composed and Conducted by Antón García Abril
Limited Edition of 500 units

Quartet Records and Gruppo Sugar present the world premiere release of Antón García Abril’s music for the 1974 bizarre Spanish comedy Fin de semana al desnudo, directed by Mariano Ozores and starring Alfredo Landa, Lina Morgan and Máximo Valverde.

The original score was composed by the iconic Spanish composer García Abril (Texas Addio, The Werewolf Versus the Vampire Woman, the Blind Dead series, Fortunata y Jacinta, Monsignor Quixote), in the same humoristic and romantic style that he employed for many comedies in the sixties and seventies. Although García Abril composed the score for over 300 films during his career, less than ten albums of his film music have been released, so we are delighted to begin to correct this.

Mastered by Claudio Fuiano from the original stereo tapes courtesy of Gruppo Sugar, the package includes an 8-page booklet with Spanish liner notes by Juan Sánchez.


The four titles are available for shipping from now.

Bravo, Quartet! Great releases, as always. Can't wait for the Adenot.

Are we getting also Pino Donaggio's PATRICK along this batch??

Or maybe it was pushed back for March?? Just asking...

What are the catalogue numbers for the titles? I went to the site and they wre not there. I was going to update the ScorePedia.org page listing for Quartet.

The ardenot score has no limited unit number; was this intentional?

The Ardenot is a regular release.

A Time Of Destiny is incredibly beautiful, and some will remember it from the initial trailers for the Kevin Costner Wyatt Earp (talk about music that sells!).

You and I must be some kind of long lost relation, Shaun. DESTINY is goooooorgeous.

I remember first hearing it in that WYATT EARP trailer, buying the EARP soundtrack (before I knew better), listening through the whole thing two or three times to make sure, then bringing it back to the store (before I knew better). It took what felt like forever, maybe a year or two, before I finally tracked down the piece:

Quartet, you guys rock! You are every bit as good as Intrada, La La Land, Varese or Kritzerland. I'll be ordering 3 of those.

I used to just call the "trailer department" at all the studios and they'd tell me. Back in the pre-information-is-everywhere-on-the-internet days!

I like John Candy.

As do we all, I'm sure.

Never heard DELIRIOUS, but I'm sure it'll be a treat.

You can hear several soundsamples before you decide to buy itwink www.quartetrecords.com

They actually sound pretty amazing in every way!

It's quite disapointing that the end credits song isn't included... it's a nice one... but as I understand it, Eidelman wasn't directly involved, just provided thematic material on which the song was actually based by Jim Peterick. Sung by John Melnick.

i have a question for quartet records regarding beauty and the beast.

Available with two different booklet versions: French and English.
is that mean that only the front cover is with french titles (belle bete) and all liner notes in English or the entire booklet is in french or english?

 
 Posted:   Feb 3, 2014 - 9:44 AM   
 By:   mastadge   (Member)

Entire booklet.

Interesting batch, quite taken with Beauty and the beast. The Morricone I'll need to check out some more.

Eagerly anticipated new adaptation of the classic Beauty and the Beast directed by Christophe Gans


Not really...

 
 Posted:   Feb 3, 2014 - 11:53 AM   
 By:   mastadge   (Member)

I'm eagerly anticipating it. Gans is not the best director out there but he does have a keen eye and I'm looking forward to this movie on a visual aesthetic level alone.
