After several important anthologies devoted to Francois Truffaut, Claude Sautet and Jean-Luc Godard, the "Ecoutez le cinâma!" series is releasing a special album of music from the films of Alain Resnais. A film director of insatiable curiosity and a man rightly considered as a musician among filmmakers, Resnais worked with composers of widely different nationalities, generations and cultures in partnerships that were unexpected but always productive: from the world of the stage-musical came Stephen Sondheim (for Stavisky); Hollywood supplied Miklos Rosza (Providence) and modern American television produced a partnership with Mark Snow (Coeurs). Resnais' career is summarized here in an hour and a quarter of music, from Hiroshima, Mon Amour to his recent film Coeurs. The album, like a short-cut to Resnais, includes music that has never been released, rare excerpts from his scores that hadn't appeared on record. The album is an iconoclastic surprise that paints a musical portrait of the most musical of France's contemporary film-directors. Universal. Label: Emarcy Import
