From the Manufacturer

In collaboration with EMI Music Publishing, Music Box Records presents on CD the slightly expanded score from the original motion picture Bertrand Blier's Préparez vos mouchoirs composed by Georges Delerue in 1978. The film received rave reviews and won the César Award for Best Original Music, as well as the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

Through his brilliant Mozart pastiches at the request of director Bertrand Blier, the composer gives us a contemporary vision on the work of the Austrian composer (the use of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K.467 - Andante conducted by Delerue himself). Georges Delerue's delightful score is catchy and plays charmingly with the narrative arc.

This present edition, fully remastered from the recording sessions master tapes, features one previously unreleased track (the alternate version of the lively track La poursuite). The package includes 8-page liner notes by Nicolas Magenham discussing the film and the score.
