Press Release from Quartet:
Quartet Records is very proud to present the first new score by Maestro Ennio Morricone since Giussepe Tornatore’s La Megliore Offerta (The Best Offer) (2013).
Returning to French cinema after an absence of 35 years, Morricone has collaborated with director Christian Carrion (Une hirondelle a fait le printemps, Joyeux Noel) on an emotional film about the invasion of France by German troops in 1940, and the people of a small town fleeing from the barbaric Nazis.
Ennio Morricone has written a moving, beautiful, deeply melancholic and nostalgic symphonic poem. The music takes us back to the sound of his best epic scores, such as A Time of Destiny, Casualties of War, Il Deserto Dei Tartari or Baaria. Played by the Roma Sinfonietta under the baton of the composer, this is certainly a great milestone and one of the most highly anticipated works of the year.
