After Les choses de la vie, Transversales presents the first ever LP reissue of this classic Philippe Sarde soundtrack: César et Rosalie.
"As it happens, Philippe is less interested in his natural function which is to write music sheets... than in the film itself. And I, somehow, am as much, and perhaps more interested in the music than in the film itself. Therein lies the deep reason for our paradoxical relationship." These are the words French film director Claude Sautet used to define his collaboration with the prodigious French composer. The "Cesar et Rosalie" score is like a magical bridge linking baroque and electronic music, mixing Moog synthesizer sequences with acoustic instruments.
Compared to the original CAM LP, this reissue contains 6 unreleased tracks that were removed from the original tracklisting. Among them a Mariage 72 in Bacharach style and a beautiful piano version of the theme performed by Philippe Sarde himself. It obviously contains Romy Schneider’s famous voice-over in the unforgettable track La lettre de Rosalie.
