The scenes are from all over France.Does anybody know the musical selections and the locations filmed in Impressios de France?
I don't believe that Nocturne #3 (Sirenes) appears anywhere in the film.Nocturne No 1 (Nuages) and Nocturne No 3 (Sirenes) by Claude Debussy
I believe that only two selections from Gaite Parisienne are heard, "Ouverture" (during the bike race, car race, etc.) and "Allegro moderato" (celebration at Notre Dame).Gaite Parisienne (played thrice) by Jacques Offenbach
Mine too. Am I the only one who tears up during Impressions de France? Depending on how long it has been since I last visited the attraction, there is at least a 40% chance that I will tear up at some point. I've had visiting family and friends give me an odd look when they notice me moving to wipe a streaming tear from my face. It is the beautiful music that does it to me, and Claire de Lune is one of the trigger spots.That's from the incomparably sublime Claire de Lune ... one of my favorite moments of the film
Call me dumb, just don't call me Shirley, but I guess I don't understand what it is that you're looking for. As Buddy Baker arranged the score, and conducted the London Symphony Orchestra in the recording of the score, specifically for Impressions de France, why would you expect to find a duplicate recording sitting on a shelf in Barnes and Noble?The closest full orchestral version I can find is the one by the Philadelphia Orchestra on the Ocean's 11 soundtrack. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find the exact one used in Impressions de France ...
I have an ALD recording that I did (which includes the score and narration). It took five tries, but it may be one of the best ALD recordings I have heard. I posted it as a link on MB on Christmas Eve, but I'm sure the link has expired now. I can send it your way.That reminds me... perhaps this is a question better asked over at MB... but does anyone have a high quality source recording of Impressions de France with the narration included? I've got WAVs of what I am assuming is the complete musical score from my Walt Disney World Forever CDs, but I am also looking for something that includes the narration.
Cool, thanks! The Assistive Listening Devices are mono, aren't they? I know the frequency response doesn't go past 10 kHz on those things. I wonder how well we could isolate the narration in an attempt to layer it over the stereo track(s).I have an ALD recording that I did ... I can send it your way.
Better, then, would be a copy of the old ALD recording with just the narration, because most people are content to pass around 128K MP3s, and I'm one of those lossless snobs.Under the old system, only the narration came through. Someone took the WDWF tracks and the narration and put together a compilation. I think I still have it somewhere, I'll have to check.
