A classical composer, Georges Auric made also his name in the cinematic world in Europe and United States as well, especially in the forties and the fifties. He notably worked with Jean Cocteau (Beauty and the Beast), John Huston (Moulin Rouge) and William Wyler (Roman Holiday).

In the recent years, some new recordings brought back to life the film music of Auric. As for us, we offer for the first time on CD the fine soundtracks from Bonjour Tristesse, Gervaise and Christine, three movies directed respectively by Otto Preminger, René Clément and Pierre Gaspard-Huit, starring Deborah Kerr, David Niven, Jean Seberg, Maria Schell, Romy Schneider and Alain Delon.

Carefully restored, these original versions are performed with matchless warmth and liveness. The program offers an equal share of incidental-dramatic compositions and easy-listening source cues, mostly intended for dancing, in addition to two songs. 16-page booklet. – Clément Fontaine, DCM producer
