TOURS DU MONDE, TOURS DU CIEL / THE FIRST STRING QUARTET (REISSUE / 300 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Georges Delerue

In collaboration with Colette Delerue, Music Box Records proudly presents the remastered CD reissue of Georges Delerue’s original music from the French TV series Tours du monde, tours du ciel (1991) directed by Robert Pansard-Besson (La Légende des sciences).

Tours du monde, tours du ciel, aired in 1991, is still recognized today as a model of scientific popularization, and was at the time a not-to-be-missed TV program for all amateur astronomers in France: they still vividly remember Georges Delerue’s wonderful music. The score, highlighted by the deep tone of the strings of the Orchestre de Paris, displays its melodic and contemplative lyricism in each of the chosen sequences and conveys a fascinating feeling of infinity. Moreover, this magnificent score had such an impact that some cues of Tours du monde, tours du ciel could be heard in other movies such as Jean-Claude Brisseau's Céline (1992) and more recently in Xavier Giannoli's The Apparition (2018).

The album also includes the first string quartet (Premier Quatuor à cordes) composed by Georges Delerue in 1948. His classical piece makes here its world premiere CD release and is played by the members of the Traffic Quintet under the supervision of composer Alexandre Desplat and the violonist Dominique Lemonnier. It was recorded at Studio Davout in 2010 for Pascal Cuenot’s documentary dedicated to the composer (Prelight Films).

Music Box Records is proud to reissue this album previously released in 2018 and quickly sold out. The package includes an 8-page booklet with exclusive liner notes by Florent Groult. The CD reissue is limited to 300 units.
