Trunk Records (Basil Kirchin, Delia Derbyshire) release David Shire’s score for Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 flick The Conversation. Shire’s music for the film marked the beginning of a shift in the world of film scoring. Eschewing the large orchestras favoured by many of his predecessors, Shire largely wrote this music for solo piano. When he did opt to include more instruments he confined himself to a small jazz ensemble. This paring back brings an intimacy to Shire’s compositions that only adds to their curiously seductive air.
