Although primarily monothematic, the complete scorehere available for the first timedemonstrates just how fruitful and versatile the melodic/motif driven approach of the late Silver Age truly was. Stelvio Cipriani's foundation premise of a frenetic chase theme for full orchestra is impressively morphed into a dizzying array of ideasa truly rich tapestry of textures, impressions and mood are presented in the 27 tracks of this CD.
As the film is essentially the last of the so-called disaster epics it strays from the originating principle of the genre and is a hybrid; more of an investigative thriller than disaster film. Cipriani addresses this by boldly infusing his familiar, highly melodic and adult-pop driven demeanor with synth flourishes that border on tropes more common to science fiction. Because of this the various themes and variations create a brand new sensation for the seasoned film score connoisseur. Concorde Affaire '79 should be considered a rare treat and an exciting and successful experiment: an attractive, glamorous orchestral score with a fluent blending of paranoia and icy, hallucinogenic fear making for a delightfully idiosyncratic lounge-style cocktail! This particular CD release will most likely remind all of us of just how flagrantly entertaining and fun film music used to be.
