Notes and Editorial Reviews

The fruitful working relationship between filmmaker François Truffaut (1932–1984) and composer Georges Delerue (1925–1992) covered 23 years and 11 films, beginning with 1960's Shoot the Piano Player. Here, the London Sinfonietta, led by Hugh Wolff, performs music from that film and half a dozen others, including Jules et Jim, for the Nonesuch film series. "Many of these scores have a shimmering atmospheric quality that recalls Debussy," said the New York Times of the works in this collection, "and other effects that evoke Satie."

Original scores composed by George Delerue. Performed by The London Sinfonietta, conducted by Hugh Wolff.

Recorded at Air Studios, London, England and
