* Previously Unreleased
** Contains Unreleased Material

MUSIC BOX RECORDS presents on the same CD two original motion picture soundtracks composed by Serge Franklin for Alexandre Arcady's films: Le Coup de sirocco / The Siroccan Wind (1979) and Le Grand Carnaval / The Big Carnival (1983). These two scores are presented for the first time in complete remastered editions.

In Le Coup de sirocco, Franklin and Arcady together evoke the great scores of Nino Rota and Armando Trovajoli: an atmosphere in all ways Mediterranean, voluble and warm, between tarantella and largo, providing thematic material that is simple, immediate and which anchors its roots in the deepest folklore.

In []Le Grand Carnaval[], this boundless and charming tale, composer and director are of one accord on an American-Italian score, played to the sound of records brought over by U.S. Soldiers: swing la Glenn Miller, flights of fancy sometimes lyrical, sometimes carnivalesque, the intimacy of a guitar or piano solo or that of a violin, and so on.
