MUSIQUE

le 18 avril 2007, la musique du film de Billy Wilder The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, composée par Miklos Rozsa, sort en CD dans un enregistrement récent et original offrant les morceaux disparus avec les scènes coupées au montage final.





Vous pouvez dès aujourd'hui commander le disque en vous rendant sur le site www.tadlowmusic.com
Il est vendu £12,95 (frais de port compris), soit 19,52 euros (le disque vous sera posté cinq ou sept jours avant la date de sortie officelle).
C'est James Fitzpatrick qui produit cet enregistrement de la BO (partition reconstituée à partir de diverses sources, enregistrée en multi micro dans un esprit BO) et un nouvel enregistrement du concerto pour violon (enregistré dans un esprit plus "classique"). L'enregistement a eu lieu récemment avec l'Orchestre philarmonique de Prague, dirigé par Nic Raine, avec la violoniste Lucie Svehlova.
Il s'agit d'une édition collector limitée à 3 000 exemplaires.
Le disque contiendra 77 minutes d'enregistrement dont vingt minutes de bonus constitués des morceaux composés pour les scènes coupées au montage final du filùm (donc jamais entendus par les spectateurs).

Le morceau tiré du Lac des cygnes de Tchaïkovsky, que l'on entend pendant le film, n'est pas sur ce disque qui se limite aux compositions de Miklos Rozsa. Le producteur a estimé le réenregistrement de ce morceau inutile, puisqu'on peut le trouver sur d'autres enregistrements.
Selon le producteur, ce projet se ferait "à perte" si l'on en croit le détail qu'il en a donné sur un forum spécialisé.
"Pre-Production: about $12,000 Score Reconstruction - about $2000 Music Copying. Recording: about $23,000 for Orchestra & Conductor - about $4000 for studio, enginer, pro tools etc. Post-Production: about $3000 doe mixing, editing, mastering. So (not including airfares to Prague, hotel etc.., and artwork and manufacture of CDs plus mechanical royalty payments..), a total of around $44,000. As each total release is limited to 3000 units with a average profit (after manufacture costs, royalties, distribution fee etc..) of $8 per unit, if I sell all 3000 then my income is $24,000 against an outlay of $44,000....so I make a loss of $20,000."

Sur le site www.tadlowmusic.com, vous pouivez visionner une vidéo de l'enregistrement qui permet d'entendre un extrait du morceau "Gabrielle", avec Lucie Svehlova au violon, et Nic Raine dirigeant le City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

Released on April 18th, 100 years since the birth of Miklos Rozsa.

“Father was extremely overjoyed at the prospect of scoring the life of Holmes. As he says in his autobiography, Double Life, the script had the wit, the imagination and the charm of Wilder’s best films, and I was certain that this was going to be the best of them all….as to the music, I enjoyed adapting my Concerto
This really was a wonderful opportunity for my father to join his two musical “lives” together. His score would have appeal to not only the aficionados of film music but to the more “sophisticated” concert goer. This World Première recording produced by James Fitzpatrick brings to life his beautiful, captivating and enchanting score and in addition gives us a wonderful bonus of listening to the music that father composed for the film that was cut out of the final version. This truly is a wonderful tribute to my father’s centennial! Thank you.“

How much money does it take to produce one of these projects?
James Fitzpatrick answer:
Pre-Production
About $12,000 Score Reconstruction
About $2000 Music Copying
Recording:
About $23,000 for Orchestra & Conductor
About $4000 for studio, enginer, pro tools etc..
Post-Production:
About $3000 doe mixing, editing, mastering
So (not including airfares to Prague, hotel etc.., and artwork and manufacture of CDs plus mechanical royalty payments..)
a total of around $44,000
As each total release is limited to 3000 units with a average profit (after manufacture costs, royalties, distribution fee etc..) of $8 per unit, if I sell all 3000 then my income is $24,000 against an outlay of $44,000....so I make a loss of $20,000

I naturally presumed that (most) people wouldn't be too bothered whether I recorded the balalaika "source music" cues...as with the proper score now being well over 60 minutes it would be very difficult to justify (to the company secretary...my wife) a special trip to Moscow just to record a few minutes of Balalaika orchestra! Funnily enough they don't have any balalaika players in Prague...it might have to do with something like "Balalaika = Russian instrument = We got rid of the Russians in 1989"!

If some people really, really, want the source music then if they would like to send me about $8000 I can record it especially for them...as I have Rozsa's scores for most of the source cues.

As to the yodelling and bagpipes...well you can do them yourselves!!!


Now on www.tadlowmusic.com is a "rough" video of the rehearsal by Lucie Svehlova, Nic Raine and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra of "Gabrielle" from THE PRIVATE LIFE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES.
