French composer Michel Magne is renowned for his dynamic scores associated with the comedies of the 1960s and 70s. He also made his mark with romantic blockbusters like the Angélique saga. Magne's contribution to Circle of Love of 1964 unites these two facets of his talent.
Magne seems to have taken great pleasure in dressing this boudoir fresco with themes that are sometimes perky, sometimes sentimental but always catchy. His melodic talent lends itself perfectly to the popular dance rhythms at the beginning of last century in Europe. The composer himself conducts a large, classical sounding orchestra. Of outstanding quality, the original recording benefits from both the natural acoustics of a concert hall and the refinements of a sterophonic recording that enhances all instruments. A treat for any music lover!
