From the Manufacturer

In collaboration with Warner Chappell Music France and Studiocanal, Music Box Records proudly presents on the same CD two original motion picture soundtracks composed and conducted by Georges Delerue: Un homme amoureux (A Man in Love, 1987) and Premier Voyage (First Voyage, 1980).

Diane Kurys' fourth feature film, Un homme amoureux, shot in Rome in the history-filled sets of the legendary Cinecittà studios and presented at the opening of the Cannes festival in 1987, plays with the theme of the "mise en abyme" between reality and cinema. The original soundtrack, resolutely melodic, accompanies first of all the characters' beating hearts, revealing the strength of their feelings but also their frailty. The main theme, dominated by a siciliano rhythm, slowly unfurls its broad melody entrusted to the strings, and echoes Steve and Jane's passionate affair. The composer wrote two other themes, one associated with Jane (Greta Scacchi), a soft, rather sad motif for oboe and flute and the other – played by a flute and strings – expressing Steve's melancholy (Peter Coyote).

Nadine Trintignant's sixth feature film, Premier Voyage is a road movie narrating the adventure of a brother and sister – played by the filmmaker's own children, Marie and Vincent. The main theme develops a slow melody played on the zither by the famous soloist Monique Rollin and sounds rather like a music box, playing over and over in the young protagonists' memory and bringing their lost childhood back to them.

Supervised by Colette Delerue, this present edition features the remastered original LP program (except for one source cue) for Un homme amoureux and the expanded score for Premier Voyage, remastered from the composer's original master tapes. The package includes a 12-page booklet with liner notes by Sylvain Pfeffer, discussing the films and the scores. The release is limited to 700 units.
