Maurice Jarre was an outstanding composer of French film music and his original soundtracks became a household word in films for the entire second half of the twentieth century. This selection of music from Olivier Julien looks back on Jarre's early period when he was the young music director of Jean Vilar's TNP in Paris. But he also put his name to his first hit in Hollywood. He wrote for Georges Franju, Jean Pierre Mocky and Gérard Oury among others in France, and came to international attention with his music for "The Longest Day." It was a key period for the composer who went on to work with David Lean, Alfred Hitchcock, Luchino Visconti and Clint Eastwood among others.
