  1. C6047 Caldera Records is proud to present Guy Farley’s score for the motion picture “There’s Always Hope”, directed by Tim Lewiston. The drama tells the story of Hope and her parents who split up after her father – Jonathan, played by Colm Meaney – discovers his wife has had an affair with a colleague, smarmy Luke. In her youthful naivety, Hope refuses to accept the termination of her parents’ relationship and makes it her mission to fix it. She does so by joining her father in his holiday home in Portugal to which he has fled. There, she starts playing the good fairy as if in a Shakespearean play. Can she succeed? Director Tim Lewiston had already worked with composer Guy Farley on his directorial debut “The Hot Potato”. Ten years later, they reconnected when Lewiston set out to make his next film. For the composer, it was a dream project, also because he was encouraged to channel some of his musical heroes. In this case, Michel Legrand was an inspiration as Lewiston asked Farley to re-record the classic “The Windmills of Your Mind” from “The Thomas Crown Affair”. But his rich score has much more to offer besides an elegant new rendition of a legendary hit: Freed from the shackles of temp-tracks, Farley developed several themes for the different characters in the film. Chords and inflections from “The Windmills of Your Mind” found their way into the underscore – subliminally, as Farley later noticed when he listened back to his score. Legrand’s suave string-writing is noticeable, for instance, in “Jonathan”, which also introduces Jonathan’s theme. In its elegance and finesse, it perfectly captures the protagonist’s character, the intellectual, often melancholic writer. Hope’s theme is derived from Jonathan’s theme, sweet and old-fashioned, equally gentle and elegant – and remarkably different from Luke’s theme, the leitmotif for Sam’s affair who serves as the antagonist in the film. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, “There’s Always Hope” is one of Guy Farley’s most refined, elegant scores, and we could not be prouder to offer it on CD. The 47th CD-release of Caldera Records 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.

  3. Hier ist ein kurzer Auszug aus meinem Buch, "The Struggle Behind the Soundtrack", der etwas mehr in die Tiefe geht: The days are long gone when one director or one producer was in charge of musical decisions. Now there are countless different producers and decision-makers who attempt to guarantee that a movie, with all its ingredients, is marketable. As Bruce Broughton puts it: “In the last few years, they have wanted it fast and cheap. Because of the schedules and all the silly previews, they make the composer rewrite cues several times for no reason at all. This has made it economically difficult for composers and nearly impossible to work on their own. Today, I would go home, start to write and then I would have to put it into the synthesizer. Somebody would then send the file to the producers or director and I would have to wait for their notes. Then I would send the new file of rewritten cues and they would send their new notes. I'd be working endlessly just to get ten minutes of music done. I would need somebody else to help. Nobody is on salary nowadays and very few are getting a fee. They are working from a 'package'. They get a music budget to pay for all the expenses themselves. Some guys do very well with that. Others are terrible with that. It is a very difficult time. I don't think it is a happy time.” Producers and directors expect the composer to work as quickly as the quickest person in town, never mind how many assistants it is necessary to employ to get the job done. This increased pressure in the industry has lead composers who value working on their own, rather than relying on a team of arrangers, interns, assistants and orchestrators, to reject offers that would require them to work as the head of a team to get the job done in time. As Rachel Portman admits: “It is really sad – or not. It probably isn't when you are a young composer trying to get in. I think it can help them if they get a break. It's not something I am interested in doing, really. I have been quite purist about it. When I have been offered projects where I know I would have to have a number two composer underneath me for me to do it, I turn them down. I want to write music that is bespoke. All of it. When I did Used People and Benny and Joon I orchestrated every note of it. I loved it. I am not interested in handing things over. That's not me.” Bruce Broughton recounts a rather amusing anecdote about a director's expectations: “Years ago, a director came over to my house. At that time I had a piano in the room where I was working. I had some synthesizers in another room. He came into my piano room, looked around and said, 'Is this your stuff?' I said, 'My stuff? Yes, this is what I write on.' Then I understood what he was talking about. He expected to come in and see what a lot of composers were getting in these days, all the hardware. So I had to show him 'my stuff'. Well, I have now heard: 'Where is your team?' They expect you to show up with other people. If you just come up with yourself that's very old-fashioned. Do you still write with a pencil? Do you ride on a horse and buggy? Do you have color photographs or just black and white? They expect you to have a team. Everybody has their team.” Are most directors and producers aware of the fact that the composer they commission works in a team rather than writing everything themselves? Not necessarily, as one composer and arranger, who wishes to remain anonymous, says: “I don't think many producers and directors know about the extent of composers farming out work. Composers make sure that their clients never interface with the people who are actually writing the music. Especially in the context of television series, producers must be aware that the composer they are hiring is already working on five or six other shows. It's easy to look up that information on IMDb. Yet, they seem to be convinced that the composer alone is going to have enough time to address their every need, while simultaneously working on five other shows and maybe also on two features and a video game. Occasionally, you hear a story of a director asking a composer to not employ ghostwriters on a specific project, but that seems to be rare. In most cases, composers are scared of their clients finding out that someone else has been writing their music, and the arrangers are scared of telling the truth, in fear of never again finding work in an industry that will shun them.” Yet Broughton argues that today's producers are more ready to accept the idea that they also hire the composer's team when they hire a composer. “They may not think about what the team does though. What the team does varies from composer to composer. What happens as well is that after you presented the score, the producers or director decide to use the score in a completely different manner and they rearrange the whole score on the stage. Is that ghostwriting? As a composer, you can never be sure how your score gets into the film. I'm under the impression that people are now used to seeing the composers' team. You walk on the stage and you have at least an orchestrator there, likely a technician running clicks, likely some software or hardware programmer. There are video monitors everywhere, running all kinds of software all at once. It's obvious that the composer is coming in with a team. Who did what, I don't know. The producers and directors care about the name of the person they hired.” Matthew Margeson has had a slightly different experience as a composer in Hollywood, which leads him to assume that producers and directors are now very well aware of the fact that only few A-list composers in town are writing everything themselves: “Especially in the studio system no one is oblivious to that any more. Directors and the heads of the studios know that it's a team effort and that there are maybe some young composers that are just trying to make their way. It's a beautiful thing because it's giving a lot of young people a chance, and because everyone is aware that it happens maybe the need from the composers perspective to hide isn't as great as it once was.” Yet the revelation that a composer's work was partially written by ghostwriters may not only anger directors and producers, it can also be disillusioning for young composers who grew up as fans of film music. Admits John Ottman: “The whole factory mentality is still weird to me. When I first started I was like, 'Wow, how can a composer go into a meeting and people know that other people are writing for him?' Now people just know it and they accept it. As a composer you are now seen as sort of a director. They are basically an architect or a contractor who has his workers around. We know when that whole factory mentality started. It was just so in the face that everybody just accepted it. To me it's still weird. But I'm an old fart. Now it's necessary for composers. Even if it's just a few cues, you got to have some help.” [...] Ghostwriter are always at the mercy of their employer. Whether an arranger/ghostwriter will receive credit or royalties depends on several factors, as John Ottman explains how he approaches paying his staff: “Everyone is treated the same. But I don't have a massive team. It all comes down to the project, whether I am paid well or not, and how much I am paying this person as well. I feel horrible subjecting anybody to writing ghost music. I know how agonizing it is to write music. I almost feel terrible when asking anyone to do it. I pay really well upfront because I feel bad. Then I put them through hell. I don't think any writer writes a cue for me less than ten times, sometimes more than that. So I pay them a lot because of the hell I put them through. It really depends on the project. Then I treat everyone the same. On Non-Stop, Edwin Wendler wrote a lot. That was a different situation. When I work with people, they do a couple of cues. But Edwin wrote the music for a couple of reels because I was busy doing Days of Future Past. I had written three reels of Non-Stop before I had to go to Montreal, so Edwin worked with me on a couple of reels. I am not going to hide it that someone helps me out so much.” Matthew Margeson makes the payment for his arrangers and ghostwriters dependent on the actual work they contribute, something which differs from project to project. As he elaborates: “I like to keep it a very static system. If I have written a piece of music, fully orchestrated it myself and I then get an updated version of the film three weeks later where they removed 30 seconds of that scene, I won't have time to adjust that music accordingly. So I may have someone come to my studio in the middle of the night and remove that 30 seconds and musically connect the tissue, so it still sounds like a piece of music. That may be a lightly less of a creative job than me sketching out a piece and having someone else orchestrate it. I take all this in consideration when giving out the royalties. […] There are definitely composers that I worked for who will say, 'This is something that I can't give any royalties out for,' or, 'I need you to do this under the radar.' I think that in some cases, in their defense, that may be it's the first time they work for a specific studio or a director and they do want to keep that relationship with that director close and not let them through the smoke and mirrors completely.” [...] The set-up of Hans Zimmer's studios is explained by Matthew Margeson who started his career with Zimmer before venturing out on his own and writing the music for productions such as Eddie the Eagle and Kingsman: The Golden Circle: “When I was working for guys like Klaus [Badelt] and Jim Dooley, it was just an employer/employee relationship. I was brought on and paid as an assistant. As long as you didn't mess up too bad and you got the job done in time you were welcome to stay. In a lot of the composers' suites, not only at Remote Control, there is maybe a writing room for the composer and then an assistants' room which may have a smaller set up in it, or a place for you to do administrative tasks. But then of course when the composer leaves at the end of the day, that's a lot of the time when my job would start. I would then go into the writing suite and clean up what he was doing as far as backing up things, or finishing arrangements, or uploading a finished cue to the server, or emailing it to a director, or doing the preparations for the next day.” When working with a team on a film score it is essential to make each piece of music fit homogeneously into the overall sound of the score, rather than having a mixture of styles and different approaches by the various composers contributing to the project. Nothing is more irritating than a patchwork score which actually sounds like a patchwork. The approach to resolving this potential problem is elaborate, as explained by C., a former assistant at Remote Control who wishes to remain anonymous. At the beginning of each project, Zimmer has a meeting not only with the director of the movie and perhaps some of the producers, but also with the composers who will contribute to the score, as well as a music editor and possibly some assistants – a group of not more than ten to fifteen people overall: “In a production meeting, the division of work is being scheduled. As a composer, after you return from the meeting and go back into your studio, there are already several messages on your computer with detailed notes about the production which was just talked about a few minutes ago. The work flow is absolutely amazing and necessary. It is incredibly quick and one meeting is not enough for that.” Indeed, in the course of the production of the score for a movie there will be several meetings at regular intervals, as C. continues: “Even when Hans is mentioned as the main composer on a project, the director talks to all composers involved in the team during a production meeting. As the music is being presented in a meeting this makes sense. At the end of a production such a meeting is likely to be held every day, or at least every other day. Sometimes Hans asks a question during the meetings and sometimes you do better not to answer. Because sometimes he just wants to have your skills proofed.” The amount of music Zimmer writes himself varies from film to film, but the process itself is always the same, with Zimmer exploring new, unusual sounds as the composer explained: “Before writing a single note, my team and I spend a lot of time programming new sounds, sampling new instruments. [...] The moment I start writing, I start mixing. Since I don't write on paper, I spend a long time making each note and sound convey the right emotion. It helps later with the live musicians. I can be very specific in my language (and I use English, not Italian) to convey to them why I want a note or phrase played a certain way. I don't make changes on the scoring stage, I don't let directors make changes with the musicians there. The recording is about getting a performance, not re-writing the cue. Nothing sounds worse than a bunch of bored musicians that had to wait while someone's changed an arrangement.” After programming new sounds Zimmer writes a suite of music for the movie. C. elaborates: “This suite is based on his talks with the director and the musical ideas he got from them. The vision is his. Of course, he asks for opinions from people at Remote Control, but the overall concept is his and his alone. Some composers who worked for Hans were not able to deal with the stress. You can't solve problems with logic. You need to solve them psychologically to be able to survive there.” After each production meeting the composers who have been assigned to write parts of the score retreat to their individual studios and work on their cues, which are based on the themes by Zimmer. To be able to work as efficiently as possible in a team, Remote Control has its own internal server. During the night, everything that had been written during the day is synced to all the computers so that every composer has the same data available when they come into the studio the next morning. Every composer not only has all the music written by every other composer, but also has all the materials created, such as virtual instruments and samples. There are people working at Remote Control whose job is to build virtual instruments, manage the samples and ensure this content is available to the composers. With this way of working, every new production has a set of new sounds, ensuring that each project is distinctive. As elaborate as this technology is, it can cause problems, as recounted by C. in a rather amusing anecdote: “One night, I was in charge of the back up. But I needed some material from the computer which I wanted to put on my private hard drive. I put my hard drive in and pulled it out again afterward. Or I thought it had been my hard drive. As soon as I had pulled it out, an error message of the sync software appeared on my computer, saying that the back up could not be completed. I looked at other computers in the studio as well and found that the message appeared on every single one of them. I had pulled out the wrong drive! This meant that every computer had a different amount of material. I panicked. I then had to do a night shift to repair the damage by walking into every studio and checking every computer to see what the individual status was and if any material had been damaged.” The Struggle Behind the Soundtrack - Amazon
  4. C4046 Caldera Records is proud to present Ennio Morricone’s score for the motion picture “Gli occhiali d’oro”, directed by Giuliano Montaldo. Giuliano Montaldo’s adaptation of Giorgio Bassani’s novel tells several stories at once. The title – “Gli occhiali d’oro” (“The Gold Rimmed Glasses”) – was carefully and intelligently chosen. The over-arching subject is, after all, blindness. Or seeing, depending on how one chooses to look at it. One storyline concerns a doctor (played by Philippe Noiret) who is respected as long as he hides his homosexuality. Another deals with a young Jewish man (played by Rupert Everett) who recognises the threats Mussolini and Hitler pose in the Italy of the 30s. Against these stories of individuals, is one of communal blindness, of intelligent, educated and sensible citizens being lured by fascism. At another level, “Gli occhiali d’oro” is a scathing critique of the hypocrisy of the upper classes, in which everybody lives behind a facade to uphold their reputation and standing. Though now difficult to find, Giuliano Montaldo’s “Gli occhiali d’oro” was revered by critics when it came out in 1987. It won the David di Donatello Award for Best Music. The whole score is one of Morricone’s most carefully crafted, a tender composition that not only manages to capture the grim atmosphere of the film, its dread and sorrow, but also enhances it, encapsulating the painful loneliness felt by its two protagonists. “Gli occhiali d’oro” is comprised of several themes: the main theme, which plays over the opening credits; the love theme for David and Nora; the comparatively upbeat “A Cena Con I Ragazzi”, the forlorn and trepidatious “Persecuzione Storica”; and the yearning and desolate “Ricordo Del Ghetto”. Claudio Fuiano had prepared an LP programme of the score for “Gli occhiali d’oro” under Ennio Morricone’s supervision for the film’s release. However, the album was not issued until the 90s, by Screen Trax on CD. We use the same programme, remastered by Richard Moore. The score is not complete, since already by the 90s the original, complete tapes could not be located. We are delighted to finally make “Gli occhiali d’oro” available again and sincerely thank Claudio Fuiano for his kind and generous support. The 46th CD-release of Caldera Records 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.

  5. C6045 Caldera Records is proud to present Zbigniew Preisner’s score for the motion picture “Man of God” from 2021, directed by Yelena Popovic. Popovic’s biopic chronicles the most turbulent years in the life of a man who had made it his mission to serve others and improve the conditions of those in need: Saint Nektarios. Popovic’s film shows how Nektarios helps the poor and destitute, provoking three objectors within the church turn to the bishop’s patriarch Sophronios. No longer wiling to hide their anger at Nektario’s servitude towards sinners and harlots, his enemies claim he will bankrupt the church and usurp the patriarchy. Without trial, Nektarios is convicted and exiled from Egypt in 1891. Particularly because of his deep love for Greece, its culture and people, Zbigniew Preisner was delighted to score “Man of God” – and agreed to do so without having read the script. From the beginning, it was clear to Preisner he wanted to use a choir – a Byzantine one. After some searching, he collaborated with the Choir of Chanters, “The Maestros of the Psaltic Art” (?? ?a?st??e? t?? ?a?t???? ??????), one of the most famous Byzantine Choirs. Following their collaboration of “Valley of Shadows”, Zbigniew Preisner and Lisa Gerrard worked together again. The latter recorded her sung parts – written by her – in Australia. Furthermore, Preisner felt it the right choice to use Greek instruments. It was obvious and necessary for a film about a Greek saint. The local color is provided by a qanun, a string instrument not dissimilar to the zither and often associated with Greece and its culture. “Man of God” is also notable for its mix of symphonic and electronic music, used to achieve spiritual metaphysics. “Man of God” is one of Zbigniew Preisner’s richest scores, a unique exploration of symphonic music infused with local, Greek, colour, electronics and Byzantine elements, particularly in the employment of Lisa Gerrard’s special talent, used to powerful effect. The 45th CD-release of Caldera Records 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.

  6. C6044 Caldera Records is proud to present Dwight Gustafson’s scores for the motion pictures “The Printing” and “Beyond the Night”, directed by Tim Rogers and Katherine Stenholm respectively. “Beyond the Night”, from 1983, tells the story of John and Bettie Dreisbach, passionate missionaries who first worked in Nigeria tending to leprosy patients and spreading the word of Christ in an area that was nearly exclusively Muslim. For close to ten years, the Dreisbachs served as ministers in the Sahara, before the government forced them to leave. “Beyond the Night” describes the couple’s time in the Sahara Desert. Dwight Gustafson’s themes are infused with discreet elements from African music such as the rhythmic drumming in the “Titles”, specific tone sequences particularly popular in Northern African music (“Trip to the Village”) and a heavy use of grace notes in the woodwinds (“Clinic Day”). What binds the score together is Gustafson’s strong main theme, first heard in the “Titles” and later through diverse variations heard in the course of the movie/score. In its sweeping nature, the theme has a folkloric Americana quality that echoes the works of Aaron Copland and even the spiritual compositions of Alan Hovhaness. “The Printing” tells the story of hardship experienced by Christians in the cause of their faith. This time, the story is set in the Soviet Union and celebrates Christian believes who, despite being threatened by the communist government which had made it its mission to stifle Christian belief, dared to openly worship the Lord. Not only do the heroes of this film refuse to abandon Christ, but they continue to secretly print Bibles, convinced that God will protect them from the evil schemes of the communists. Gustafson’s music here is as moody and gray as the architecture of communist-era Russia – where incidentally, the composer can also be seen in the film, playing a pastor. Unusually for him, he utilizes a synthesizer and subtle suspensions to introduce his main theme, a downbeat yet still lyrical melody in a minor key that later blossoms through variations that the composer develops during the course of the score. His delicate, sophisticated orchestration remains evident throughout. The 44th 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.

  7. C6043 Caldera Records is proud to present Zbigniew Preisner’s score for the motion picture “Forgotten We’ll Be” from 2020, directed by Fernando Trueba. Trueba’s acclaimed film is inspired by Héctor Abad Faciolince’s memoir “Oblivion: A Memoir” in which he describes with great tenderness the life and work of his father, the revered Colombian scientist and activist Hector Abad Gómez who was killed by mercenaries in 1987. Adapted by Trueba’s brother David, the film focuses on two major time periods: the 70s and mid-80s. While the latter part – shot in black and white – mainly deals with Gómez’ political agenda and achievements, the scenes set in the 70s – shot in color – paint Gómez as a devoted family man. They also describe the turmoil experienced by him and his family through the hands of his young son Hector who runs over a woman in his car and throws stones through the window of a Jewish family’s home. After their collaboration on “The Queen of Spain”, “Forgotten We’ll Be” marked a new collaboration between the revered director and renowned composer Zbigniew Preisner. “Forgotten We’ll Be” is similar to other Preisner scores released by us at Caldera Records – namely “Valley of Shadows” and “Lost and Love” in that childhood and the loss of childhood innocence play a pivotal role. “Valley of Shadows” and “Forgotten We’ll Be” are even partly told from a child’s point of view. Hence there was no question that Preisner’s score for Fernando Trueba’s most recent film should capture themes of childhood musically. Hence, the composer devised gentle and yet poignant themes for orchestra, choir and solo instruments such as the harp which features prominently in one of Zbigniew Preisner’s most haunting and touching scores. The 43rd 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.

  8. Da habe ich andere Sachen gehört. Marco Beltrami im Interview 2017 mit mir - teilweise in meinem Buch 'The Struggle Behind the Soundtrack' publiziert, Teile davon (bis jetzt) unveröffentlicht: "People that know me call me Darco instead of Marco so I guess I wouldn't fall in the jolly fellow category. The way I deal with an issue is by trying not to be mired in it, not to take it that seriously. I would say 30 percent of the job is enjoyable. That is the creative part, coming up with ideas and writing the music. But so much of it is not creative. It's dealing with budgets and contracts and problems, dealing with too many producers. It's the normal bullshit. It just saps your energy. By learning to remove myself a little bit from that and by saying, 'Whatever happens happens', I find that I am able to deal with it a lot better and have a more healthy relationship with my job. I feel bad for the young composer who are up and coming. They have to deal with these problems. I don't know how much longer I will do this anyway. I have other interests as well."
  9. C6042 Caldera Records is proud to present "Chronicle", a celebration of the creative relationship between director Werner Herzog and composer Ernst Reijseger. For 15 years, Herzog has worked with cellist and composer Ernst Reijseger. It was he who penned the music for films as colorful as “The White Diamond”, “My Son My Son What Have Ye Done”, “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” and, most recently, “Fireball.” Ernst Reijseger is an internationally celebrated cellist. His music knows no boundaries and is therefore hard to categorize. Reijseger rejects labels such as world music despite the fact that he has worked for over a decade with Senegalese singer and poet Mola Sylla and Dutch pianist Harmen Fraanje, with Indonesian and Sardinian ensembles, accompanying their traditional folk music with skillful improvisations on his instrument that at times sounds like a didgeridoo, percussion, but rarely like a cello, so inventive his playing is. It’s unlike anything you have ever heard. "Chronicle" is a Best-of compilation that features the most remarkable recordings of Reijseger and his ensemble for some of Herzog's most acclaimed films. The 42nd CD-release of Caldera Records, released in collaboration with Spring Music Productions, features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke, an interview with Werner Herzog as a bonus track, and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Niels Brouwer and produced by Ernst Reijseger, Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  11. Caldera Records is proud to present Gerald Fried’s music for Stanley Kubrick’s films “Fear and Desire” and “Day of the Fight”. Gerald Fried and Stanley Kubrick became friends as teenagers. The musician enabled the latter to join a baseball team while the future director served as the conduit for Fried to join intellectual circles. They would first collaborate professionally in 1951, when Kubrick needed music for his short film, “Day of the Fight.” A year previously, the photographer had portrayed boxer Walter Cartier for Look magazine, and henceforth decided to make him the subject of a moving picture. “Day of the Fight” follows Cartier during the hours preceding a seminal fight, with the tightly focused 12-minute documentary including trivia from the boxer’s life, as narrated by Douglas Edwards. Then in 1952 Kubrick started to develop his first feature film, a drama he saw as a poetic allegory about a man lost in a hostile world. “Fear and Desire” – describing the two dominant human passions – is not to be taken literally, as it depicts the struggle of four soldiers who find themselves behind enemy lines. As opposed to opening the film with a boisterous main title fanfare (as he had done in “Day of the Fight”), he used only a solo bassoon to introduce the theme, reminiscent of Stravinsky’s famous opening of “Le Sacre du Printemps.” Kubrick loved this approach and showered his friend with compliments during the recording. Fried set out to write a profound, meaningful, touching, despairing and yet triumphant score – which he duly achieved and with which he paid tribute to the film’s qualities. Incidentally, and although he had ended their working-relationship in 1957, Kubrick was very much inspired by a film Fried worked on in 1964: “To the Moon and Beyond” was produced for the World Fair in 1964/65 in New York. The short film, narrated by “Twilight Zone” creator Rod Serling, depicted a voyage “to the moon and beyond,” showing the earth continually shrinking while the camera zooms further and further out. Because of its Kubrick connection, we included the score for “To the Moon and Beyond” here. The 41st 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.

  12. 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.
