An incredible package that really gets at the full range of music used in the films of French director Francois Truffaut – a legacy that begins with the jazzy sound of his early new wave recordings, through his 70s work with composers Georges Delerue and Antoine Duhamel, to his still-strong films of the 80s! The package goes way past the usual Truffaut collections – which usually just linger in the new wave – and features 4CDs' worth of material that spans the years 1959 through 1983 – material by Jean Constantin, Georges Delerue, Bernard Herrmann
, Antoine Duhamel, and Maurice Jaubert – for films that include Fahrenheit 451, La Peau Douce, La Sirene Du Mississippi, La Mariee Etait En Noir, Baisers Voles, L'Enfant Sauvage, Le Dernier Metro, La Cahmbre Verte, L'Argent De Poche, Une Belle Fille Comme Moi, and others – with a selection of music from every Truffaut film of the period. CD5 features Truffaut Apres Truffaut – reinterpretations and reworkings of themes – by Hugo Wolff, Traffic Quartet, Raymond Alessandrini, Laurent Pettigirard, Juliette Greco, Alain Jomy, and others. All that – and a nice box and booklet, too!
