Memory & Cinema

 

Isabelle Durin, violon & Michael Ertzschied, piano

Film music is for us a love story we would like to share with audiences that are forever more interested in original and ‘different’ concert styles and formulas. Yentl, Fiddler on the Roof, The Round-Up (Dien Bien Phù)and La vita è bellaare as many films that echo the triptych of Schindler’s List by John Williams. The artists already recorded the latter on a previous CD (“Hebrew Romantics” Jade-music/Universal) which honours works inspired by the Yiddish cultural heritage.

In their present album “Memory and Cinema”, composers such as John Williams, Michel Legrand, Nicola Piovani and Georges Delerue have attempted to recreate, each in their own style, a musical universe which remains intact thanks to our memory of sounds, melodies and soft as well as passionate inflections on the violin, reminding us that sound and image are closely interwoven.
