That Good Night

Music by Guy Farley
Produced by Stephan Eicke

Reviews:
“Guy Farley is one of those hard-working guys (pardon the pun) whose name you hardly ever see in mainstream movies or television. Caldera records have a rich history of releasing Farley’s music that has, quite likely, slipped under anyone’s radar. And the thing is… it’s really great stuff.”
Synchrotones

“Given a nostalgic waltz-structure, Farley’s music is gently impassioned, and imprints upon the listener the earnestness of the character to right the wrongs of his self-centered past. Comprised of a chamber orchestra colored by ethnic instruments such as Spanish guitars and cavaquino, accordion, ethnic percussion, which conveys the Mediterranean flavor of the film’s rural Portuguese setting, carries the emotional storyline with an airy lightness that is both brightly appealing and eerily reflective.”
BuySoundtrax

“This is a delicate work for small classical ensemble, embellished with warm Mediterranean colours and not shying away from sentimentality. It is warm, melodic and melancholic, not very original but very touching.”

“Guy Farley never stops amazing me, takes you to a place you recognize and been before… then steps it up to a wonderful place… a beautiful place.”
JMHDigital

“A score with a beautiful main theme that shows both dignity and melancholy. It is an often intimate work, elegant and austere, with Portuguese references when the story demands it.”
MundoBSO

“The composer does everything right and once again I feel the need to say something that I am beginning to think I should open every Caldera review with instead of ending it with it: this is a perfect film music score, and one of those stunningly beautiful compositions that Guy Farley graces us with whenever he gets the chance.”

Lisa

Music by Gabriel Yared
Produced by Stephan Eicke

Reviews:
“When you look for words to describe music, it’s hard to find other words than great… perfect or amazing… but when you are talking about composer great Gabriel Yared… those words stand out, here is another stand out piece and Caldera Records brings this to us all… and we should say thank you… THANK YOU!”
JMHDigital.com

“LISA is one of those beautiful and meaningful orchestral scores that will leave a lasting mark. After listening to thousands of film and TV scores over the years, one of my strongest certainties is that when Gabriel Yared writes an orchestral score I will be touched and moved and I will be grateful. I am also grateful once again to the people at Caldera for bringing all these treasures to life and doing justice to compositions that should never be forgotten or ignored. We might not get a lot of releases from them each year but those we do get are, almost always, perfect in every way.”
SoundtrackDreams.com

“This is another jewel discovered by Caldera. Composed in 2001 to illustrate a tragic love set during the Second World War, the score offers a noble and poignant main theme. The emotional power of the strings and woodwinds is expertly used by Yared throughout the album. How can you be unemotional? It’s majestic!”
