When the wonderful folks at La-La Land Records initially released this score in 2009, my first thought was interesting choice, never saw that adaptation of this classic story, but I LOVE Michel Legrand. When deciding what releases to add to our 2018 slate, this was one that we felt needed to be reissued. It's such a beautiful, haunting and moving score, one we feel is among his best and most unheralded.
As part of our 2nd chance series (of sorts - it's not officially a series per se, just a term we use in house to prioritize our planned releases) we are trying to revisit scores we felt sold well in their first go round but could use a reissue to help those who missed out or may be new to collecting soundtracks get a copy at a reasonable price. This is one of those scores that deserves to be in as many collections as possible and we are happy to try and make that happen. If you love beautiful and haunting scores this one is for you. Enjoy!
