At long last! World premiere expanded release of two legendary Michel Legrand soundtracks, one an Oscar-winner no less, the other amongst his most impressive achievements. Summer Of '42 (1971), directed by Richard Mulligan, starring Jennifer O'Neill, Gary Grimes, received the Academy Award for "Best Original Score", yet found the admittedly beautiful original 1971 LP offering just two tracks from the score. While the complete work runs just a brief 17 minutes, all of them feature preciously beautiful, wistfully nostalgic music, amongst the most attractive in film score history. To fill the original Warner Bros. album, 30 minutes of his powerful score for the 1969 Robert Sallin adventure The Picasso Summer, with Albert Finney, Yvette Mimieux, entitled "The Picasso Suite", were included on the record. Intrada proudly premieres the entire 55-minute score on CD 2, almost doubling it's length, including several previously unreleased cues showcasing Legrand at his most stunning! Flavorful music trades between sweeping main love theme for two San Francisco tourists searching for Pablo Picasso throughout France, Spain and impressive music for actual gorgeous locales, shot by famed Vilmos Zsigmond. French aspects of score are delightful, lilting. Spanish aspects take command, offer powerhouse music for large orchestra. In between are intense, aggressive orchestral outbursts for animated sequences of twisted Picasso images. Composer's original assembly of his "Picasso Suite" also plays intact on CD 1, following Summer Of '42. Magnificent 2-CD set offers both complete scores newly mixed from original 1" 8-channel stereo scoring session masters preserved in pristine condition in Warner Bros. vaults. Michel Legrand conducts both scores. Intrada Special Collection 2-CD release available while quantities and interest remain!
