  • about this album

    The fruitful working relationship between filmmaker François Truffaut (1932–1984) and composer Georges Delerue (1925–1992) covered 23 years and 11 films, beginning with 1960's Shoot the Piano Player. Here, the London Sinfonietta, led by Hugh Wolff, performs music from that film and half a dozen others, including Jules et Jim, for the Nonesuch film series. "Many of these scores have a shimmering atmospheric quality that recalls Debussy," said the New York Times of the works in this collection, "and other effects that evoke Satie."

The fruitful working relationship between filmmaker François Truffaut and composer Georges Delerue covered 23 years and 11 films, beginning with Shoot the Piano Player. Here, the London Sinfonietta performs music from that film and half a dozen others, like Jules et Jim. "Many of these scores have a shimmering atmospheric quality that recalls Debussy," said the New York Times, "and other effects that evoke Satie."
