Caldera Records is proud to present the original score for the motion picture “Lisa” from 2001, directed by Pierre Grimblat, featuring music by Gabriel Yared. The film tells the story of young filmmaker Sam (Benoît Magimel) who becomes obsessed with an unfinished 1939 picture entitled “Princess Marushka”. In fact, Sam’s fascination is not with the film, but with its lead actor Sylvain Marceau (Sagamore Stévenin) who had mysteriously disappeared during World War II. What happened to him? Was the film unfinished because of his disappearance? Where had he gone? In order to answer the question, Sam decides to make a documentary about Sylvain and sets off to interview all surviving friends and colleagues who might have some insight into his character. His most interesting lead in the investigation is the eponymous Lisa Morain (played by Jeanne Moreau and a young Marion Cotillard) who recounts her torrid love affair with the actor on the eve of the outbreak of World War II.
The music for “Lisa” was written by Academy Award winner Gabriel Yared (“The English Patient”). His large orchestral score was recorded at Abbey Road and is brimming with memorable, haunting themes and motifs. The focus is on the love between the heroine and Sylvain as the darker themes of the German occupation keep looming in the shadows with the main theme being passionate, powerful and moving, providing a glimmer of hope for the protagonists in the film. “Lisa” vanished soon after its premiere and the score has been neglected since – until now. One of Gabriel Yared's most moving works receives its first release ever and it is a delightful discovery for fans of the composer and passionate movie music in general.
The 23rd CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai, new front- and back cover drawings by Helmut Breneis and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

I love you guys! You pick the coolest titles, subscribe to a "abbreviated/rearranged for listening" approach, and also have those informative composer commentaries at the end. I wish there were more labels like you.

Thanks for your kind words, Thor!
Unfortunately, we do not have an audio commentary this time since Gabriel wants the music to speak for itself which is only understandable.
Everything else is as usual though - it's not the complete score and the tracks are not in chronological order to guarantee the best possible listening experience. Just like I would want to experience a film score on CD.

Unfamiliar with film and score, but this is right in the middle of Yared’s untouchable do-no-wrong period (English Patient to Troy). So count me in for this one.

Looks a fabulous release. I'm unknown to this Yared score, so i'll need to make up my mind & listen to samples, but well done Caldera. Thank you & WG2 smile

If there is one label where I ever need to listen to samples it's Caldera. This is magnificent news- new/old Yared and it will be mine. Thank you Caldera for ALWAYS bringing the goods!

I pre-ordered this with another CD I ordered at SAE. I noticed today that SAE is no longer listing this title.

I wonder if they aren't going to stock it now or if they shipped all the copies they received.

Did anyone else order this at SAE?


UPDATE: A friend just called their office in Virginia and spoke with a young woman. She said they guarantee that everybody who pre-ordered will get their copies, the discs just haven’t arrived in Virginia yet. They have sold out their allotment of pre-orders for this title which is the reason it’s been taken down from the website.
