World Premiere CD Release. Remastered edition.

In collaboration with Sony ATV, Music Box Records proudly presents the second volume of the collection Great Television Soundtracks dedicated to two original television soundtracks composed and conducted by Claude Bolling: L'Etrange Monsieur Duvallier (1979) and Miss (1979).

Adapted from a series of novels written by Claude Koltz, who created the character of Raner at the beginning of the 1970s, L’Etrange Monsieur Duvallier is directed by Victor Vicas, the man behind the very famous French TV series Les Brigades du Tigre (The Tiger Brigades). The adaptors transformed the main character into a kind of Robin Hood, worried about the fate of the planet.

Created by Janine Oriano and directed by Roger Pigaut, Miss is about the widow of a police captain who gets involuntarily involved in detective stories. Danielle Darrieux stars this spirited, stylish and charming woman.

Claude Bolling composed two very varied scores with eclectic moods which feature the pianist-composer’s palette in registers that range from upbeat music to suspenseful musical cues filled with dramatic orchestrations and a wider range of jazz instrumentation.

These two OSTs produced at the same period and with similar atmospheres have been selected and remastered from the composer’s original master tapes. The CD comes with an 8-page booklet with liner notes by Gilles Loison, discussing the series and the scores. The release is limited to 300 units.
