[Avec en écoute notre podcast associé, conçu par Benoit Basirico en plein confinement]. Voici un panorama des musiques dans des films avec des personnages confinés chez eux. Face à ces espaces clos, les compositeurs peuvent élargir l'horizon avec une musique ample (les mélodies de Philippe Sarde pour "Le Chat", "La Grande Bouffe" ou "Le Locataire", le lyrisme de John Addison pour "Le Limier" ou celui de Gabriel Yared pour "Juste la fin du monde"), ou bien aggraver la situation avec un soutien à l'angoisse et à l'oppression (un air en spirale de Jacques Loussier dans "La Vie à l'Envers", la musique répétitive de Mychael Nyman sur "Monsieur Hire", l'horreur de Amenabar sur "Les Autres", le thriller de "Panic Room" traduit par Howard Shore, la paranoia de "Bug" transcrit par Brian Tyler), ou encore entretenir un lien avec le voisinage (le jazz de Franz Waxman dans "Fenêtre Sur Cour").

Programme :
Fenêtre Sur Cour (1954) - Franz Waxman
La Vie à l'Envers (1964) - Jacques Loussier
Le Chat (1971) - Philippe Sarde
La Grande Bouffe (1973) - Philippe Sarde
Le Limier (1972) - John Addison
Le Locataire (1976) - Philippe Sarde
Monsieur Hire (1989) - Michael Nyman
Les Autres (2001) - Alejandro Amenábar

ASTS 024: Listening To... Franz Waxman

In this episode, I explore the rich, melodic and memorable film music of Hollywood Golden Age composer Franz Waxman. Born in Germany in 1906, Waxman was known by his peers as the consummate musician, having studied music in Berlin while supporting himself by performing and arranging pop music of the day in local cafes. Waxman emigrated from Germany to the United States in the early 1930's, along with many talented artists, and became part of that first generation of brilliant musicians who developed and perfected the art of film scoring, alongside giants such as Max Steiner, Alfred Newman and Erich Wolfgang Korngold. I discuss Waxman's place in the early days of the new art form of music for motion pictures (the famed "Golden Age"), plus its development overall for some context, and his evolving style through the highlights during his career, including REBECCA, SUNSET BOULEVARD, THE SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS and TARAS BULBA.
