Of all the film music CDs, and there are many, mostly on Marco Polo, the one with Mayerling is fantastic and so is the one with the complete Les Miserables score - which is utterly fantastic music. Also Crime and Punishment is amazing and very much ahead of its time, as you'll hear.

Thanks for sharing that - had no idea that Didier had reviewed these. Also, that site is great for reviews. I use it all the time.

Now, no one has guessed the title put up by someone other than myself. Try. It's a composer i love and I want someone to guess so I can find out which performance it is, because it doesn't match any I have, time-wise.

It is very lovely, and it does sound Herrmanny, but I don't know what it is.
Maybe I'm too young wink


Methinks Kev McGann isn't going to start collecting French music from the 1930s.

Ding, ding, ding - we have a winner! Honegger has been a favorite of mine for decades. Ironically, the first Honegger piece I ever heard was Pastorale d'ete on Mr. Herrmann's The Impressionists LP. I fell head over heels in love with it and have never heard a bum piece of music from Honegger yet. There's a reasonably priced box set of the symphonies conducted by Serge Baudo - those are great performances for all five. His cello concerto is fantastic.

Yet Omni Music publishes scores such as Willow or Back to the Future and not any film music by Honegger ...
or Alwyn or Takemitsu or Frankel or ...

Like Honegger, he was a member of the Six group... smile

Before Waxman's The Spirit of Saint Louis and Goldsmith's The Blue Max, there was Honegger's Mermoz :



Some parts also sound like John Scott, especially his scores for Cousteau.

Well, if that's not a clew I don't know what is smile

Ok that limits it to Poulenc, Milhaud, Auric and Duray.

Since I know Poulenc's music pretty well I'm going to guess it's not him, and the next logical choice is Milhaud anyway.

I'm going to guess -- and I've never heard the piece -- that it's his "Concerto Marimba, Op. 278", given then instrumentation is supposed to be marimba, vibraphone and orchestra and...well that's what the sample is.

And we have a winner. I have loved Milhaud since the early 1970s when I came across a marvelous recording of Le Boeuf sur le Toit. I also La Creation du Monde. And the Munch recording of Suite Provencale is a masterpiece. His symphonies are equally interesting in any number of ways, but this guy was as prolific as it gets. Including his film scores. Bravo.

Who wants to post next? I have a few others I can post as we go along our merry, tuneful way.

Now, can someone tell me which recording of the concerto this is. I have several but none quite liner up with this one, time-wise.

Very interesting piece. Don't recognize it but I almost want to guess Schnittke but that doesn't really fit the theme that's been going on here.

You may be right since it sounds like Shostakovich (and also Prokofiev) here and there.

Bruce, I'm almost certain the Milhaud recording that RcM posted is the Peter Sadlo/Bamberg SO/Wolfgang Rögner one on Koch Schwann.

Nope, and Nono's guesses are good, too, but a no. I will give you a little help: The composer is American.

Did you cheat??? smile Antheil it is, the slow movement from his sixth symphony. I recommend all the CPO discs of his work - all the symphonies, the piano concertos, and Capitol of the World, his ballet. The bad boy of music was apparently only really bad with Ballet Mechanique - his other stuff is just great, and I love his film scores.

No, I have a couple of Antheil discs I picked up cheap in a used bin. I actually thought it was a different piece than the one you say it is, but at least I had the right composer. More of a lucky guess. Kind of like when I hear Barry's 'Out of Africa' and 'Somewhere in Time.' I can never get them straight but I know they're obviously Barry.
