LA REVOLUTION FRANCAISE (THE FRENCH REVOLUTION / REISSUE / 2 CD / 500 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Georges Delerue

In collaboration with TF1 Studio, Music Box Records presents the CD reissue of the epic Georges Delerue score La Révolution française (The French Revolution, 1989).

Shown in two parts upon its original release (The Light Years and The Terrible Years), the two-part film by Robert Enrico and Richard T. Heffron was made for the 200th anniversary of the Revolution and detailed the history of the conflict in six hours with an international cast such as Jean-François Balmer, Jane Seymour, Andrzej Seweryn, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Sam Neill, Claudia Cardinale, Peter Ustinov, François Cluzet and Christopher Lee. The film spans one of the longest and most complex scores by Georges Delerue. The colorful tapestry of the 20+ year history allowed the composer to create one of his most evocative scores ranging from his best-known romantic side to lush period pieces, choral majesty and disturbing strings suspense for the fall of Robespierre and friends. The epic score was recorded at CBS Studios in London with the British Symphony Orchestra.

In 2014, Music Box Records released the expanded soundtrack in a deluxe limited 25th anniversary collector's edition, including the full program of the original Polydor albums with over 35 minutes of previously unreleased music from the composer's archives. This newly remastered release contains the same music as the previous edition but with improved sound quality. The French Revolution can be considered as one of Georges Delerue's great achievements in his whole career.

The CD comes with a 12-page booklet with new liner notes by Sylvain Pfeffer, discussing the film and the score. The reissue is limited to 500 units.
