HOWARD BLAKE The Duellists / Riddle Of The Sands AOD HB002 (Promo) 19.99 (73:52) Duellists is visually triumphant 1977 Ridley Scott movie with dark, somber music (37:11). Napoleon-era backdrops get authentic flavor, duels get intense, dissonant strings, romantic moods get haunting lyricism. Riddle Of The Sands, a 1979 spy thriller set in foggy island landscapes of northern Germany, gets rich, evocative score (36:41) with strong main theme. Moody, exciting music played by National Philharmonic Orchestra with chorus. DON DAVIS Turbulence 2: Fear Of Flying PTE 8526 15.99 (72:54) Good thing, bad thing. It's exciting music, but realized all on synthesizers. Limited colors grow heavy at 73 minutes. If only they had hired an orchestra...

MICHEL LEGRAND Partir Revenir Editions23 80045 (France) 29.99 (76:18) Rachmaninoff's Concerto No. 2 for piano and orchestra takes up first half. Second half is Legrand's score. Highlight is Legrand's own concerto (20:06), featuring one of his finest melodies. The work is exciting, haunting, powerful. A Legrand classic. ENNIO MORRICONE Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura Dagored 119 (Italy) 16.99 Capsule review coming soon. My Name Is Nobody CDST 330 (expanded) 20.99 (74:31) Terrific 1973 score, expanded for the first time. Serio-comic western with Terence Hill & Henry Fonda gets several Morricone moods - from colorful & whimsical through trademark Italian western style, from rich & beautiful through pure "final showdown" cliche'. Strong score, lengthy recording. Slalom Dagored 118 (Italy) 16.99 (41:31) Rare upbeat, uptempo Morricone score represented fully for the first time. Pretty cheesy stuff. JEAN-CLAUDE PETIT Les Miserables Madoro K 1042 (France) 29.99 (43:38) New version of classic tale starring John Malkovich & Gerard Depardieu. Dramatic, exciting symphonic music.
