From the Library: Monday at the Movies for Maurice

Today Radio Riel hon­ors the pass­ing of one of the most respect­ed and pro­lif­ic com­posers of music for films, Mau­rice Jarre. Mr. Jarre passed away last week, on March 29 at the age of 84. He com­posed the scores of many Hol­ly­wood films, start­ing in the 1950s, with his last work com­plet­ed in 2001. He was nom­i­nat­ed for sev­er­al Acad­e­my Awards over the years and won for his scores for “Doc­tor Zhiva­go”, “Lawrence of Ara­bia” and “A Pas­sage to India”.

Our pro­gram today fea­tures many of his works, as well as movie music from oth­er com­posers, such as John Williams, Klaus Badelt and Hen­ry Manci­ni.

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
