Maurice Jarre – a tribute to David Lean
In commemoration of David Lean’s 100th birthday

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Stefan Karrer, Milan Records Date: 09.11.2007
Almost 100 years ago, David Lean was born in Croydon, Greater London. Over the span of his successful career, David Lean would become one of the most influential and respected filmmakers of the 20th century, winning praise from directors such as Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. To this day, his films "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962), "Doctor Zhivago" (1965), "Ryan's Daughter" (1970) and "A Passage to India" (1984) still play in arthouse theaters all over the world.

The scores to these four films were written and composed by David Lean’s close friend Maurice Jarre. For his work in "Lawrence of Arabia", "Doctor Zhivago" and "A Passage to India", Mr. Jarre won the Academy Award for Best Original Score. A few weeks after David Lean’s death, during the tribute concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the composer’s emotional state was obvious, and could be felt in the audience’s fervor and enthusiasm.

Milan Records is proud to present MAURICE JARRE – A TRIBUTE TO DAVID LEAN, a Special Edition DVD/CD Combo of the concert recorded live at the Barbican Center in London (1992) This edition includes a full audio commentary of the concert by conductor / composer Maurice Jarre himself. Mr. Jarre shares many anecdotes about the different films he worked on with David Lean. He mentions his experience on LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, having to replace the original composer and deliver a film score within a very short period of time. On "Doctor Zhivago", he had to conduct 35 balalaika players who couldn’t read musical scores, in addition to a full orchestra.

Mr. Jarre also explains the complex techniques of synchronizing the music of a full orchestra with film footage. During the concert itself, excerpts of the films were projected on a screen behind the orchestra. While conducting, Mr. Jarre had to keep an eye on the orchestra, the chronometer in front of him, and the projected film excerpts in order for the music to match the image.

On a more humorous note, he also mentions a recording session in Los Angeles where his entire orchestra slowed down and eventually stopped playing after having spotted Sophia Loren in the technician’s booth. During the hour-long audio commentary, Maurice Jarre shares these and many more stories and insights about his career, his work with Sir David Lean, and his tribute concert to the filmmaker.

In addition to the full concert and the audio commentary, the DVD also contains an exclusive 35-minute interview of Maurice Jarre, extensive filmographies and biographies of Mr. Jarre and Mr. Lean as well as an essay by film critic Christian Lauliac on the lives and works of the two artists.
