There is a French CD of this score paired with another. Does anyone have it? I am particularly interested in the source music, especially the baroque sounding piece with brushes on the drums that Simone's friends are dancing to at the party. I hope that it does not include the godawful Clydesdale march that the asshole coworker blasts in his pad, but usually every soundtrack from that period has to have a track like this to prevent listeners from having sex. Thanks in advance.

OnyaBirri: Yes, this score is paired with Sarde's equally wonderful "Tess" score. I haven't listened to the album in a while - though I recall really loving the music - but I'll go through it shortly and see if said Clydesdale music is there. I do remember there being quite a bit of really stunning Glass Armonica music, however. In the meantime, it's possible another person with a less-faulty memory than mine will immediately be able to tell you one way or another. Sorry about that, chief.

ADDENDUM: Having gone back through the score just now, there doesn't seem to be any source music represented - just underscore. It's a fairly compact program - running only about twenty-one minutes. I'm reminded however, that I really liked this music quite a bit, with its use of col legno string clusters, aleatoric glissandi, marimba accompaniment, (what I think is a) harmonium, and that great Armonica. It can get pretty unsettling, but it's also quite beautiful. I'll have to give it a more detailed revisiting soon. So, I'm sorry that there doesn't seem to be any source music (or rather, the piece that you were asking about - on the plus side, no "Clydesdale March" either), but thanks for giving me the impetus to put this album on again!

No Clydesdale march in sight wink

But there is no 'baroque' sounding piece either at first glance. What you will find on this set however is some truly great music by Sarde (and the glass harmonica is indeed stunning).

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick replies.

Well, I'm grateful that the Clydesdale march is not on there.

But I really loved that baroque sounding piece with the jazz drums on brushes. Does anyone remember this? It's the music where Polanski's character goes to Simone's friend's apartment and they're dancing. I wonder if Sarde wrote this piece or any of the other source music, which was really cool.

Still, I may spring for this CD even without the source cues.

Available from Amazon.fr:

http://www.amazon.fr/Tess-Locataire-Philippe-Sarde/dp/B0000501B6/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1326245034&sr=1-1

Or, from Priceminister.fr:

http://www.priceminister.com/offer/buy/124570109/tess-le-locataire-sarde-philippe-cd-album.html

I've ordered from Priceminister quite often and with one exception, the service, packaging and rapidity were outstanding. I would get in mere days what would usually take weeks from SAE - and I live an Ocean away from France. The often (way) lower prices were also a huge bonus.

Terrific music. I recall the sound quality (Tenant) being a bit disappointing though.

It's long been a favourite CD of mine, I love both scores.

Onya, I'm a bit late to the baroque party, but I just watched the Polanski film again for the first time in years (by the way, a lot of people HATE this film - I love it, so there). The baroque party music is most definitely by Sarde, as it is clearly based, melodically, on the Main Theme. Pity it's not on the CD.
