Maurice Jarre Remembered on Listening To The Movies Wed April 8th 3-4pm

"A good film score is one that works in contrast with the images of the movie. The music says what the images can't say or Maurice Jarrewhat they didn't manage to convey."-(from Jarre's final interview last month).

Oscar-winning composer Maurice Jarre passed away last week at the age of 84 leaving a legacy of grand, sweeping themes to some of the greatest movies made. Hard to imagine how David Lean's "Lawrence of Arabia (1962), "Dr. Zhivago" (1965), "A Passage to India" (1984) and "Ryan's Daughter" (1970) would have turned out without Jarre's lush musical imagination. He contributed music to more than 150 movies of wide variety. A NY Times appreciation expressed Mr. Jarre well:"All I have to do is listen to how one score of his after another opens a forgotten door in my life. We sit in the movies, and though we hear the music of the films we’re watching, we do not seem to be listening to it. Only later do we realize that it has saturated us."
