«Forse questo è il libro che i critici mi chiedono da tanto tempo e che ho sempre sperato di scrivere» azzarda Simenon, che ha terminato "Le persiane verdi" in una sorta di stato di grazia, all'indomani della nascita del secondo figlio. Ha tutte le ragioni di essere soddisfatto: è riuscito a scolpire una figura larger than life, Emile Maugin, celeberrimo attore giunto, a sessant'anni, all'apice del successo e della fama, che un giorno apprende di avere, al posto del ventricolo sinistro, «una specie di pera molle e avvizzita». «Maugin non è ispirato né a Raimu, né a Michel Simon, né a W.C. Fields, né a Charlie Chaplin» afferma risolutamente Simenon nell'Avvertenza. «E tuttavia, proprio a causa della loro grandezza, non è possibile creare un personaggio dello stesso calibro, che faccia lo stesso mestiere, senza prendere in prestito dall'uno o dall'altro certi tratti o certi tic». Ciò detto, taglia corto, «Maugin non è né il tale né il talaltro..

Georges Michel, "Histoire de Vauban"

« Vauban s’appelait Le Prestre, petit gentilhomme de Bourgogne tout au plus, mais peut-être le plus honnête homme et le plus vertueux de son siècle, et, avec la plus grande réputation du plus savant homme dans l’art des sièges et de la fortification, le plus simple, le plus vrai et le plus modeste. » Dans ce superbe portrait, Saint-Simon met en avant le génie technique et le dévouement à l’intérêt général de Vauban, deux traits de caractère qui expliquent l’image favorable qu’il a conservée jusqu’à nos jours…

In 1986, despite his good fortune in Hollywood, Georges Delerue would never turn his back to French cinema. Two years after Le Bon Plaisir, he responded to the film director Francis Girod's call for Descente aux Enfers (Descent Into Hell), a psychological thriller set under the sun and heat of the Caribbean and dealing with a married couple at the breaking point - an alcoholic husband (Claude Brasseur) and his 20 years younger wife (Sophie Marceau) - who will unexpectedly manage to get reunited through tragedies and secrets, despite the guilt and sorrow involved.

Understandably, Poulenc's Gloria and Stabat Mater have almost invariably been coupled together on LPs and CDs. Similarly scored for solo soprano, chorus, and orchestra, the two works are arguably the twin peaks of Poulenc's sacred music, that is, they are irresistibly melodic, energetically rhythmic, directly emotional, conservatively harmonic, and fervently religious. That said, however, the difference in tone between the two works is as striking as their similarities. Where the Gloria is light, bright, and at times even funny, the Stabat Mater, as befits its subject matter, is dark, heavy, and always deeply sorrowful. In this pair of performances with Georges Prêtre leading the Orchestre National de France and the French Radio Choir from the '80s, both works are given the deluxe French treatment. Prêtre is as skilled at balancing his forces as he is at keeping the music moving, and, as importantly, he is as capable of expressing the Gloria's joyous wit as he is of articulating the Stabat Mater's profound suffering. But the real star of these performances is American soprano Barbara Hendricks whose clear, warm voice and excellent diction breath vibrant life into all Poulenc's glorious melodies.

Music Box Records is very proud to announce the release of L’Incorrigible / The Incorrigible (1975), directed by Philippe de Broca (a long-time collaboration over 30 years) and Va voir maman, papa travaille / Your turn, my turn (1978) directed by François Leterrier. These two soundtracks are available for the first time on CD in expanded editions with a new sequencing and a new sound mixing. The scores written for the movies of Philippe de Broca, whose qualities were long unknown to cinema enthusiasts and even to amateurs of the music of Georges Delerue, always oscillate between irony and tenderness. The score of L'Incorrigible is light, always ironic, never redundant with the image. The music for small orchestra takes tones sometimes of a detective movie, sometimes Andalusian, sometimes bucolic. A piano version of the love theme Tendre Marie-Charlotte played by Georges Delerue is included in this release. The music of Va voir maman, papa travaille (directed by François Leterrier) contains a romantic “modal color” characteristic of the work of Georges Delerue during the same period. This score is enhanced with several “pop-rock” pieces which sends back to what Georges Garvarentz, Michel Magne, Michel Colombier or François de Roubaix would produce at the same period. For Va voir maman, papa travaille, the CD offers a complete 30-minute score.

Georges Brassens was a French singer-songwriter and poet. He wrote and sang, with his guitar, more than a hundred of his poems, as well as texts from many others such as Victor Hugo, Paul Verlaine, or Louis Aragon. In 1967, he received the Grand Prix de Poésie of the Académie française. Between 1952 and 1976, he recorded fourteen albums that include several popular French songs such as Les copains d'abord, Chanson pour l'Auvergnat, La mauvaise réputation, and Mourir pour des idées. Most of his texts are black humour-tinged and often anarchist-minded.
