News & Reviews

  • In conjunction with Nonesuch Records at BAM, the Brooklyn Academy of Music's series of events celebrating the 50th anniversary of Nonesuch Records, BAMcinématek presents Nonesuch Records on Film, a salute to the label’s rich catalogue of movie soundtracks with a series featuring some of the most memorable film scores of the last 50 years from Leonard Rosenman, Alex North, Toru Takemitsu, Georges Delerue, and more. Special guest appearances include Philip Glass with a screening of Paul Schrader’s Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters and John Adams with Luca Guadagnino’s I Am Love.

  • 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."
