Tech Talk From The Producer…
Georges Delerue was known for his beautiful scoring.
Gentle melodies, warm harmonies often tinged with sadness… even his dramatic sequences
were often subdued and rarely overwrought or florid. His mastery of the strings and a love of the
flute were unparalleled, and both are on display with his original score for Exposed.
Delerue scored the film sparsely, providing just some 25 minutes of original music for the
100-minute feature. Our CD includes everything he recorded at two scoring sessions held at
MGM on July 27, 1982, including a beautiful excerpt from Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 4
in G Major, adapted and conducted by Delerue for inclusion in reel 5 of the film and recorded
at the end of the second session. While we might normally sequence this piece as an extra track
at the end of the program, we felt its beauty and appropriate instrumental coloring were perfect
compliments to the score—precisely where Delerue originally intended the excerpt to be.
The original ½” 15 i.p.s. three-channel stereo session masters were preserved in mint
condition in the vaults at MGM and have been digitally folded into two-track stereo for this CD.
Enjoy now the subtly dramatic, slightly saddened, gently beautiful and ultimately warm
music that Georges Delereue composed and conducted for Exposed.
Composed and Conducted by Georges Delerue.
Recorded on July 27, 1982, at MGM Studios Scoring Stage, Culver City, California.
