  1. C6040 Caldera Records is proud to present Ennio Morricone’s music for Roberto Faenza’s film “Sostiene Pereira”. When Antonio Tabucchi’s novel “Sostiene Pereira – Pereira Maintains” in the English language – was published in 1994, it became an immediate literary sensation. The novel’s leading character is the titular Pereira, a newspaper editor who is responsible for compiling the paper’s cultural pages. However, Pereira is not interested in publishing his political views. If all of Portugal was out on the streets demonstrating against the government, Pereira would quietly sit at home and read a good book. He is not a supporter but an enabler. His political reluctance is challenged when he meets a young man named Rossi. Pereira’s life soon changes radically. Screenwriter and director Roberto Faenza was a perfect choice to turn the novel into a feature film. The Italian film maker had for decades depicted revolts against tyrannical governments. Here, he cast Marcello Mastroianni as the overweight editor who suffers from a heart problem. Popular French actor Daniel Auteil played Pereira’s doctor, Nicoletta Braschi (“Life is Beautiful”) and Marthe Keller (“Marathon Man”) were splendidly cast in minor roles. The director had tasked Ennio Morricone with writing music for his feature debut “Escalation” in 1967, and they had worked together ever since. By 1995, their collaboration spanned seven films, eight including “Sostiene Pereira.” The latter is one of Morricone’s most ingenious works for a Faenza film. It is intricate and subversive, subtle and stimulating. For the first time, the composer worked with Portugese singer Dulce Pontes when they recorded the song “A brisa do coração” which makes its appearance several times in the film and is presented here both in its original form and in a shorter, edited version. His score subtly features Fado, a Portugese style of music in which a woman as the singer is accompanied by one or two guitars. Morricone’s score consists of several themes and motifs the composer cleverly weaves together. “Sostiene Pereira” starts with a rhythmic pattern for wood blocks, one that recurs throughout the score and serves as its backbone before several instrumental groups consecutively join in with various motifs. The score is intricately developed in that Morricone uses all these various separate elements in other cues but in different arrangements and constellations. Ennio Morricone’s rich and vibrant score was released on CD in 1995. In collaboration with Sony Music Germany, we are proud to re-release it with detailed liner notes by Stephan Eicke, featuring Christopher Slaski’s precise transcription of the film’s main theme for study purposes. The 40th CD-release of Caldera Records also features elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg. Music Composed and Conducted by Ennio Morricone Album Produced by Stephan Eicke Executive Producers for Caldera Records: John Elborg, Stephan Eicke 1.

  2. Bruce Kimmels Unterstellungen waren so vorhersehbar wie das Amen in der Kirche. Kimmel hatte mir nämlich kurz nach Veröffentlichung von Fried's THE BABY eine recht unhöfliche Mail geschrieben, dass man den Fried-Veröffentlichungskalender doch miteinander abstimmen sollte. Meine Antwort war, dass das aufgrund der Lizenznahme ja nicht notwendig sei. Darauf kam dann auch nichts mehr. Kimmel wollte ganz offensichtlich mehrere Frieds ohne Lizenznahmen veröffentlichen. Was Stefan sagt, ist sehr richtig. Kimmel veröffentlicht seit einigen Jahren mehr und mehr Bootlegs, weil ihm die Türen der Studios versperrt sind. Einigen schuldet er Geld, bei anderen hat er es sich mit seinem Benehmen verscherzt. Der leider viel zu früh verstorbene Nick Redman war in den letzten Jahren Kimmels einziger Fürsprecher. Selbst davor hatte Kimmel schon Bootlegs auf den Markt geworfen. Beispielsweise waren weder THE BRIDE WORE BLACK/TWISTED NERVE noch Herrmann's CHRISTMAS CAROL lizenziert laut des Herrmann Estate. Für erstere CD gabs dann (laut des Herrmann Estate) auch ein Schreiben vom Anwalt. Sowohl die Copyright-Angaben auf dem Backcover als auch die Auswahl des Bildmaterials geben schon immer gute Hinweise, ob es sich bei einer Kritzerland- oder Dragon's Domain-Veröffentlichung um ein Bootleg handelt (Bsp BRIDE WORE BLACK/TWISTED NERVE, FRIED SAMPLER, etc). Thaxton und Kimmel verwenden mit Absicht eigenes Artwork ohne film stills (beim Fried Sampler scheint ein (1) "film still" im Booklet-Inneren versteckt zu sein, wenn ich das richtig erkenne. Der Rest sind stock images.) Bzgl David Schecter: Ich habe mich in den letzten Tagen mit ihm unterhalten. Ihm wird nicht nur beim Skiles gedankt, sondern auch beim Fried Sampler: "I sometimes get thanked in CDs that I had nothing to do with, and seldom get thanked in CDs when I do help out a little (LOL!). So all I know is that I have no information about the releases you mentioned, as I had nothing whatsoever to do with them. I was asked by the label in question if I had any photos of Gerry, and I sent them some that Gerry had given me years ago. So if my name's mentioned in that Fried CD, which I don't have, that would be why. I know nothing about that score." Aus dem Soundtrackgeschäft hat David sich herausgezogen, unter anderem aufgrund der Schwemme an Bootlegs (und wegen illegaler Downloads).
  3. Der Gerald Fried Sampler ist ein unlizensiertes Bootleg - wie die meisten Veröffentlichungen aus der Dragon's Domain Composer Collection-Reihe. Hier meine Anmerkungen dazu aus dem FSM Board: How does Ford A. Thaxton co-ordinate with Stephan Eicke on which Gerald Fried titles will get released ... and on whose labels? Usually that is not necessary since the right owners will tell us immediately if a score has already been licensed and is "in the works" from another label. It is, however, a pity when a label decides to put out an unlicensed score. "Survive" - which we were working on - is, of course, not owned by "Gerald Fried Productions" as the back cover claims - a company which doesn't even exist as the company registers of the different states show - but by Paramount which assigned Gerald to write a new score for the film, with publishing owned by Warner Chappell: https://www.ascap.com/repertory#ace/search/title/survive/writer/gerald%20fried Just a few days ago I had gotten in touch with the responsible licensing manager who indubitably will be surprised by this release. Unfortunately, this happened before multiple times before, e.g. with the release of Howard Blake's AMITYVILLE 3-D. Again, this is not owned by the (non-existent) Howard Blake Productions. Howard Blake's company is called Howard Blake Entertainments Limited as per the UK company register: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/08829393 But the rights to AMITYVILLE are with de Laurentiis - hence the absence of stills from the movie. (That's the reason Howard Blake had released the score previously as a promo only as is mentioned on the back cover of that CD along with Flash Gordon.) (Amusing side note: When I had lunches with Howard a few years ago, we mulled over some potential releases but the rights were always an issue. When I mentioned such-and-such was owned by such-and-such, Howard would just shrug and say, 'Who cares? Just put it out.') It's sad that these unlicensed releases kill properly licensed, official releases. So, no "Survive" from us, then.

  5. C6039 Caldera Records is proud to present Andrew Dickson’s music for Mike Leigh’s films “Vera Drake” and “All or Nothing”. “All or Nothing” tells the story of a family whose members spend their days working at essential and yet low-paid jobs. Penny, played by Lesley Manville, is the main breadwinner as a cashier in a supermarket. Her partner Phil, played by Timothy Spall, drives a cab around town after years of unemployment due to his crippling depression. Living in a council flat with their two children Rachel (Alison Garland) and Rory (a young James Corden), Penny and Phil have resigned themselves to their life on the treadmill. With his music, written for violin, viola, double bass, flute, bass flute and two guitars, Dickson chose to enhance the somewhat desolate nature of some of the characters. Although “All or Nothing” was well-received critically, it is Mike Leigh’s most underappreciated film as it stands in the shadow of the director’s next work, “Vera Drake”. Vera Drake (Imelda Staunton) is a cleaner in post-war Britain, while her husband Stan (Phil Davis) works in a garage. Although they don’t have much money, they are optimistic. Having survived – and won – the Second World War, things were looking up for the United Kingdom. The worst seemed to be behind it. However, Vera keeps a secret from their family that eventually threatens to destroy their bond. At the Venice Film Festival, “Vera Drake” won the prize for Best Film before it was nominated for eleven BAFTAs, one Golden Globe and three Oscars. While it is hailed as one of Leigh’s major works, it is also the crowning opus of Andrew Dickson’s film career. By then, he and the director had already worked together for more than 20 years. For the first time in their films, Dickson and Leigh decided to use a choir. For the folk-like main theme of the film, Dickson used the germ of a sinister song about a fairground he had written previously and which had been performed by a 15-year old P.J. Harvey, a Mercury Prize-winning singer with whom Dickson performed in his local band in Bridport. Also included on this CD are selection from Andrew Dickson’s scores for “Someone Else’s America’ and “Oublie-Moi”. The 39th CD-release of Caldera Records – a world premiere – features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Richard Moore and produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  6. Sehr richtig, die Differenzierung zwischen europäischer Musik und US-amerikanischer (beziehungsweise US-amerikanischer Musik und jener aus allen anderen Ländern) muss natürlich gemacht werden. Die USA waren schon immer sehr selbstbezogen ;) Music Box macht die Erfahrung aktuell wieder wie von dir beschrieben, wir machen sie zum Beispiel mit Zbigniew Preisner. Threads bei FSM über ihn und seine Musik werden kaum geklickt und nicht kommentiert (sieht man aktuell an dem BBC-Interview, das er kürzlich gegeben hat und das ein Mensch bei FSM gepostet hat), allerdings wird Preisner in Polen fast wie ein Nationalheld verehrt. Unsere vier Preisner-CDs sind unsere Bestseller, um die sich das Publikum in Europa reißt. In den USA: Totenstille. Da wird dann eben die 569. Neuauflage von 'Robin Hood' bejubelt, als gäbe es kein Morgen mehr.
  7. Tatsächlich sagt das FSM Board aber auch nichts aus und ist für Labels grundsätzlich so überflüssig geworden wie ein Sandkasten in der Sahara. Das war früher noch anders, aber mittlerweile tummeln sich da ohnehin nur noch immer dieselben Nasen. Wir dachten zu unserem Beginn noch, das FSM sei unabdingbar für Marketing und Publicity. Das hat sich aber sehr schnell als Trugschluss herausgestellt. Es sagt nichts aus. Wir hatten Titel, um die sich beim FSM Board niemand geschert hat und die vielleicht einen Kommentar als Reaktion hervorgerufen haben. Diese Titel haben sich wie geschnitten Brot verkauft. Dann hatten wir Titel, über die sich die Nutzer tagelang rege ausgetauscht haben, die aber wie Blei bei uns im Regal liegen. Ich habe immer den Eindruck, dass die Nutzer dort sich für den Mittelpunkt der Welt halten, in Wahrheit aber für die Labels nichts (mehr) bewegen und von uns tatsächlich ignoriert werden könn(t)en.
  8. Caldera Records is proud to present Zbigniew Preisner's score for the motion picture "Angelica" from 2015, directed by Mitchell Lichtenstein. “Angelica” also tells a story of female empowerment. It is based on Arthur Phillips’ book of the same name, published in 2007, and adapted for the screen by Lichtenstein. Set in the Victorian age in England, Phillips and Lichtenstein describe the trials and tribulations of Constance (played by Jena Malone), a young woman who falls in love with a successful scientist. Their romance blossoms and leads to marriage. Eventually, a child is born, a girl they name Angelica. The birth is grueling, and Constance nearly loses her life. For her, everything changes in an instant: she is told in no uncertain terms by her doctor that she is to refrain from engaging in vaginal sex (and therefore become a “hortus conclusus”) – otherwise she will risk her health and quite possibly leave her daughter motherless. From this moment Constance goes into a downward-spiral. Zbigniew Preisner’s music pays tribute to the elegant romanticism of the 19th century, while at the same time weaving more experimental elements into it. The composer decided against creating specific leitmotifs for the individual characters. Instead, his music follows the story as it progresses. Hence, Preisner developed variations on the themes as demanded by the story. For example, there is no theme for Constance per se. Preisner follows her journey with various motifs and themes, divided into what the composer calls the “courtly” and the “modern.” The 38th CD-release of Caldera Records – a world premiere – features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Leszek Kaminski and produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  9. Caldera Records is proud to present the original score for the motion picture “Man at the Top” from 1973, directed by Mike Vardy, featuring music by Roy Budd. Writer John Braine established Joe Lampton as a ruthless force to be reckoned with when he published his novel “Room at the Top” in 1957. The film rights were snatched up immediately, and only two years later, Jack Clayton’s adaptation premiered in theaters. Following another outing in the cinema and a television series, Anglo-EMI, in collaboration with Hammer Films, decided to let Joe Lampton (now played by Kenneth Haigh) loose on the big screen once more. In 1973, “Man at the Top” premiered. Here, Joe Lampton is appointed Managing Director of ChemExport, a company overseen by Lord Ackerman, played by Harry Andrews. All is not well: six months later, it emerges that Lampton’s predecessor committed suicide. Slowly it becomes clear to Lampton that he might have been appointed to take the blame for a massive marketing blunder that could crush not only him but the whole company. Kenneth Haigh was delighted when he heard that Roy Budd had been contracted to write the music for “Man at the Top” since the actor had admired Budd’s music for a long time, especially “Get Carter”. His score for “Man at the Top” is quite similar to his most beloved composition in that it is equally sparse. The composer devised a simple motif for the titular character which is introduced on a cimbalom and which recurs throughout the whole score. Apart from the Hungarian instrument, Budd employs strings, flute, piano, harp and percussion to create a tense atmosphere fitting for the film. His leitmotif is particularly clever since, in its coldness and restraint, it doesn’t try to make Joe Lampton likeable, and yet manages to underscore the more tender moments in the film with a slight tension that the images lack. Moreover, “Man at the Top” gave Budd the opportunity to provide two memorable jazz pieces as source cues for dinner parties. The 37th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  10. Caldera Records is proud to present the original score for the motion picture “One Potato, Two Potato” from 1964, directed by Larry Peerce, featuring music by Gerald Fried. Peerce’s film, one of the first to discuss an interracial relationship openly in cinema, tells the story of a young single-mother named Julie (played by Barbara Barrie) who cares for her daughter all by herself after her husband abandoned her. Struggling with everyday life, she strikes up a friendship with Frank (Bernie Hamilton) who seems supportive and kind, giving Julie a respite from the nastiness she’s had to endure. It doesn’t take long for the two of them to fall in love. Although Julie and Frank are aware of the problems they are likely going to face as an interracial couple in the 60s, they decide to marry. Society, however, does not wish to grant them their happiness. Surprising for an independent film without any major studio backing, “One Potato, Two Potato” scored an Oscar nomination for its screenplay. As beloved as his music for both “Star Trek” and “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” is, composer Gerald Fried considers “One Potato, Two Potato” one of his best works. It is a score which is dear to his heart, not least because the film tackles a subject that the composer felt strongly about. The memorable main theme makes several appearances throughout the album, at times playful and jaunty, at other times tense and introspective. As a contrast, Fried developed a sorrowful and yet warm lament as accompaniment for both Julie and Frank who try to overcome the various prejudices and other hurdles society presents them with. While there are several other motifs and themes in the score, the nursery rhyme serves as the backbone of the whole composition. The 36th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  11. Caldera Records is proud to present the original scores for the motion pictures “Flame in the Wind” and “Sheffey” from 1971 and 1977 respectively. Both films were produced by Unusual Film, a division of Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. “Flame in the Wind” is set during the time of the Spanish Inquisition and follows a young man named Carlos who is faced with a conflict throughout the course of the motion picture: should he, horrified by the Inquisition, follow the Bible, or adhere to religious tradition? “Sheffey” was an even bigger undertaking, a lavish and expensive production: Born in 1820, Robert Sheffey was a Methodist evangelist who spent his lifetime taking care of those in need, traveling through Virginia and Tennessee and preaching the word of God. The music for both films was composed by Dwight Gustafson. Born in 1930, Gustafson was named acting dean of the School of Fine Arts at BJU at 24. He served as administrator, taught, composed, conducted and preached until his retirement in 1997. The music for “Flame in the Wind” is based around three themes which recur throughout the score, which was issued on an LP by Unusual Films in 1971. Gustafson wrote a leitmotif for the film’s hero Carlos which is supposed to reveal the pathos and heroism of the young man as he tries to find his way. The second theme, a rather eerie, instrumental melody for the Inquisition expresses the repression and terror for which the inquisitors are responsible, while a triumphant chorale seeks to honor the true believers who have lost their lives due to their faith in Jesus Christ during the Spanish Inquisition. “Sheffey” follows a different musical conception, although Gustafon’s style is unmistakable. Since the film, through the life of Robert Sheffey, tells the story of folk religion, Gustafson decided to employ various folk tunes as seemed appropriate to backbone for his score. Both “Flame in the Wind” and “Sheffey” were composed, orchestrated and conducted by Dwight Gustafson and recorded with the Bob Jones University Symphony Orchestra, composed of students and faculty. LPs of both scores were made available by Unusual Films/BJU to coincide with the film releases. The 35th Caldera CD features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Richard Moore and produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  12. C6034 Caldera Records is proud to present a selection of Andrew Dickson’s music for Mike Leigh’s films, most notably “Naked” from 1993. Mike Leigh is one of the most revered film-makers in British cinema. Over a span of nearly 50 years, he has garnered 7 Oscar nominations, 14 BAFTA nominations (winning four), a Palme d’Or, a Golden Lion, and countless other prestigious awards. He had already shot “Bleak Moments” and several BBC productions when, in 1981, he met Andrew Dickson. Their collaboration would become one of the most fruitful ones between composers and directors: For “Meantime,” broadcast in 1983, Dickson chose to use a tack piano and a saxophone. The composer has always liked the idea of different instruments representing different people, and piano and saxophone somehow seemed perfect for a film about two brothers in a housing project. His music for “High Hopes” with its prominent use of blues harmonica, recorder, viola and bass won Dickson the European Film Award in 1989 – and deservedly so. But, undoubtedly, their most well-known film is “Naked”, a raw and painful portrait of a young man (played by David Thewlis in a career-defining performance) wandering through London’s night life. “Naked” is a relentless score, driven by a recurring ostinato played on harp. The music is as relentless as the character of Johnny, driving him forward, onward, downward. Like “Naked,” “Secrets & Lies” is in an incredibly rich film, giving Dickson a lot to draw on. His music, composed for strings and brass, is heart-rending and yet far from being sentimental. Andrew Dickson’s music for Mike Leigh’ films has never been released commercially in any format, despite several attempts by various labels. Thanks to the support of both Mike Leigh and Andrew Dickson, we were able to finally license selected cues for this unique compilation, the 34th CD-release of Caldera Records. This world premiere features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Richard Moore and produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

Caldera Records is proud to present Zbigniew Preisner’s score for the motion picture “Lost and Love” from 2015, directed by Sanyuan Peng. “Lost and Love” tells a harrowing (and apparently true) story of loves lost. The love described in the film is the love between parents and their children. Andy Lau plays against type by portraying Lei, a poor fruit-grower. For 15 years, he has been searching for his child, traveling through the vast country in the hope of being united with his offspring. On his way from one end of China to the other, he meets up with a young mechanic who goes by the name of Zeng Shuai as played by Jing Boran. The latter is also searching, although not for his child but for his parents. For her feature film debut, Sanyuan Peng chose Zbigniew Preisner as composer who wrote one of his very best works, a delicate and yet passionate score which is rich in themes and variations. Its most prominent theme is – fittingly – a lullaby which opens the album. It is a melody which recurs throughout the score in different metamorphoses. Not only did it fit the images on screen, it also captured the overall topic of the film. The main theme, as already briefly laid out in the prominent lullaby, can be heard most prominently in “Lost and Love – Main Theme”, carried by strings, while echoes of it feature in “Retrospective”. It is reincarnated in a variation for flute, guitar, harp and orchestra in the “End Credits”, which offer a glimpse of hope to the characters in the film and therefore the audience when it is given a passionate coda. The 33rd CD-release of Caldera Records – a world premiere – features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Leszek Kaminski and produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  14. Caldera Records is proud to present Gerald Fried’s Oscar-nominated score for the motion picture “Birds Do It, Bees Do It” from 1974, directed by Nicolas Noxon and Irwin Rosten. Narrated by Lee Bergere, a beloved actor who had guest roles in every major television series in the 60s (including “Star Trek”), “Birds Do It, Bees Do It” examines the reproductive habits of bacteria, frogs, lions, kangaroos, elephants, monkeys, birds, rhinos, and others by showing in graphic detail how animals behave before, during and after sexual intercourse. The documentary did not shy away from its sensitive topic. Instead, it discussed sex as a natural part of life and aimed to educate its viewers. In fact, several college campuses decided to show the film to its students in the mid-70s, using the moving images of copulating animals as an educational tool. Fried had already worked on a number of Wolper productions when he was offered to score the documentary. It would be one of the most satisfying experiences of his career. Not only was he not subjected to a hair-rising deadline, he also had sufficient funds to execute his creative vision. When he saw the rough cut for the first time, the germ of an idea evolved – human beings portrayed in the film would musically be treated with tonal themes (Man Intrudes), while animals would get less organized, less thematic, but nonetheless tonal music (Kangaroos). Insects would be portrayed with electronic music and/or percussion instruments (Talking Insects), amoebas only with noises produced by synthesizers (Primal Ooze). In 1976, “Birds Do It, Bees Do It” received an Oscar nomination for Best Dramatic Score. It failed to win, but Gerald Fried’s glorious music for Birds Do It, Bees Do It stands the test of time and is not only one of Fried’s very best scores but also one of the best scores ever written for a documentary. The 32nd CD-release of Caldera Records – a world premiere – features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Richard Moore and produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.
