Return of the Marquis de Sade CD – ALEPH 024


“Lalo Schifrin the man, like his music, is comprised of the stuff of many worlds. His own elegant erudition casually offered, bespeaks a passion for an older time, an ancient civilization long vanished. Absorbed through the ether of time and history, the disparate cultures finally coalesce and are reborn in the arts. For Lalo, who simply describes himself as a music maker, those thoughts and actions and ideas recomposite themselves in the notes on his page and in the minute shifts of his instrument’s keys.”
…I would like to express my gratitude to His Excellency Abdulaziz bin Mohammed Al Rowas, Cultural Adviser to His Majesty the Sultan. His enthusiasm, hospitality and magnanimity made my work possible… …This work is dedicated to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said, Sultan of Oman.

– Nick Redman, from the liner notes
