The show for a friend ! An orchestra for a great composer ! The music of several of the best movies of the previous decades ! Jarre is perfect with something more in his eyes !

Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago are unforgettable Nov. 2 2007
By M+ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is an unbelievably emotional concert. You can almost feel Maurice Jarre's heartbeat and definitely hear it at the end when he takes the mic. It's great to have images of these fantastic films mixed with live footage of the orchestra playing. The commentary track of Maurice Jarre is full of insights, and anecdotes. The guy has so many funny stories to tell! It's a must have for every Lean / Jarre fan...

Great music and great insights from Maurice Jarre April 21 2011
By T. Fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I came to this DVD preparing myself for a letdown. I came away from it delighted with the experience.

At first, my fears appeared to be well founded. I wasn't terribly impressed with the orchestral suites Maurice Jarre prepared from the music to "Ryan's Daughter" and "A Passage to India", which started off the program. I have always thought of Jarre as a pretty visionary film composer, but the music in the first two suites was coming across as fairly pedestrian -- easy, simple themes and pretty ordinary, even old-fashioned orchestration. I was getting worried.

Things started to look up a bit with the suite from "Dr. Zhivago", although even here I felt the music was lacking in scope and power -- which actually made sense since the film is really just a simple, intimate story about human relationships, although set against a pretty dramatic background. The music was also lacking in balalaikas. You'd have thought they could scrounge up a few, at least.

But then Jarre played a sequence designed to show what a film score does -- the wordless bicycle/temple sequence from "A Passage to India" where the heroine is "attacked" (not really) by a horde (not really) of monkeys. Outstanding music and great presentation! Then a suite of music from "Lawrence of Arabia", one of the greatest film scores ever written, closed the show and certainly did not disappoint.

The real treat to the DVD is the commentary track by Jarre, who discusses both the music in some detail and some of the background behind it during the film's production. Anyone who is a fan of David Lean's films and likes watching films with commentary tracks will not want to miss Jarre's comments on this DVD. He shares great, fascinating information about the films, the music and the process.

This is also true of a 35-minute interview with Jarre, also included on the DVD. It's fantastic. For example, he explains the situation behind the crediting of Sir Adrian Boult as conductor of the score on the "Lawrence" film credits, but not on the original soundtrack album. Turns out it was a scam by producer Sam Spiegel to get film subsidies from the British government! Boult did not conduct the film score at all. This is just one of the interesting pieces of information that comes out in the interview.

Note that the video quality is poor -- filmed on video in 1992, with all the inherent lack of sharpness you would expect. But this is not a fatal flaw.

After listening to the commentary track and interview, I got a lot more pleasure out of the "Ryan's Daughter" and "Passage to India" music that hadn't appealed to me as much the first time around. This DVD is definitely a winner for anyone interested in David Lean's films or Maurice Jarre's music!

Simply the best July 10 2008

Along with John Williams, Basil Poledouris, Jerry Goldsmith and Howard Shore, Maurice Jarre is what we have the best in movie music. A spectacular dvd. Must have.

Maurice Jarre Jan. 7 2008
By Ronald A. Nightingale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I bought the Maurice Jarre as a christmas present for my father in law as he said he wanted the music to Lawrence of Arabia.Untill i started searching for it i did not know that Maurice Jarre did this but then started searching for some live footage of the orchestra and was finding nothing in Australia but Amazon had the David lean tribute and quite a lot of other tunes too so it was well worth it and it came with dvd and cd and the quality is superb. I look forward to shopping further at Amazon.
