In 1989, seven years after Costa-Gavras received the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for his film Missing, this great filmmaker born in Greece began shooting Music Box, his third American film. The story of a Chicago attorney's defence of her own father accused of Nazi war-crimes is a modern tragedy with shades of an Oedipus complex, and Costa-Gavras began a fruitful association with French composer Philippe Sarde, whose scores for Claude Sautet, Bertrand Tavernier and Roman Polanski had created an aura of respect for him. “I liked the idea of a French composer for an American subject with roots in Central Europe," says Costa-Gavras today. Using studios in Budapest and London, Sarde recorded a vast orchestral score enhanced with the timbres and sounds of Hungarian folk-music, represented here by the Muzsikas group, together with traditional folk-dancers who created an unusual rhythm by slapping their leather boots. The reissue of this score is complemented here by another two original soundtracks which Sarde wrote for Costa-Gavras: La Petite apocalypse and especially Mad City, for which the composer wrote several pieces of additional music (never released on record until today) which combine expressions of lyricism and violence like an inner portrait of the John Travolta character in that film. Completed by an absorbing interview with Costa-Gavras, this album adds another layer to Philippe Sarde's edifice at the heart of the Ecoutez le cinéma! collection.
