Nearly all the content of this disc is a world premiere recording. Before going to the studio, the Claudel-Canimex Quartet played Delerue's two String Quartets in concert. With all the intensity and the precision that made their reputation, the four musicians women render wonderfully the tension and the surges of passion of these demanding works. The pieces for clarinet and oboe with piano accompaniment, played by renowned soloists, make a good introduction to Delerue's classical style. This release will please to every film music fan already familiar with the composer's production, as well as to every fan of contemporary music.
