Despite the poor reception, one key element of the film received unanimous accolades: Delerue's stunningly heartfelt score, which channeled the spirit of Vivaldi through his own gentle musical voice. Delerue's sweeping lyricism gave the film's innocent mammals, christened Alpha and Beta, a musical heartbeat and a heartbreaking voice, intertwined with the darker sounds of intrigue and deception. The score would rightfully earn Delerue both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations.
Delerue himself produced the original LP in 1974 (later released on CD in Japan in 1991), choosing to present 30 minutes of his score out of sequence to provide an alternate musical flow. Now appearing on CD for the first time in the U.S., Percepto presents every note of Delerue's score as it was heard in the film, newly remastered by Doug Schwartz at Mulholland Music, plus bonus tracks not heard in the film or on the previous releases.
This lavish deluxe edition also presents the most exhaustively researched notes in our label's history by film music journalist, Daniel Schweiger, plus a wealth of full-color photos and poster art, including many never-before-published.
Percepto is proud to celebrate our 10th anniversary and 25th release with this superb masterpiece, rightfully considered one of the true crown jewels from Delerue's prestigious career.
