Notes & Reviews:

These two (DCM114 and DCM201) releases further illuminate the remarkable skills of Georges Delerue who, until now, was "merely" a film composer. One who, admittedly, had a vast number of credits during his Hollywood years alone and who is fondly remembered more than ten years after his premature death. The first disc, compiled and arranged by Robert Lafond, showcases some of the music that has not been generally available on recordings in the past; these innovative transcriptions include a set designed as a virtual piano concerto. The second disc is a welcome sampling of the chamber music Delerue composed over a great number of years, revealing his affinity with the music of past French masters
