In The Other Side of Midnight, the film opens with soaring shots of decaying Greek ruins and the sunlit Mediterranean blue of the Aegean with a bouzouki setting the musical stage. As the camera pans to the prison, Michel Legrand's lush main theme soars in the strings. With Legrand trademarks like repeated chromaticism, intervallic sequences and unexpected modulations, the theme provides a romantic backdrop to the vengeful machinations that are brewing. The film also features a number of silent montages that allows Legrand's score to breathe.
For this long-overdue CD premiere, Intrada was provided access to the original two-track stereo album master prepared by the composer in 1977 for the 20th Century Records LP, vaulted in beautiful condition by UMG. The twelve tracks of the CD are presented in the same order as the original album.
