Doxy present a reissue of Jean Ledrut's soundtrack for The Trial, originally released in 1962. In 1962, Orson Welles brought what he called his greatest film, The Trial, to the big screen. Filmed in a beautiful black and white, written by Welles and with the incredible performance of Anthony Perkins, Romy Schneider, and Jeanne Moreau. The Trial captures very well the Kafkaesque feeling of the novel. The film is a paranoid nightmare, interrupted here and there by moments of typical Welles humor. One of the elements that contributes to the atmosphere of the film is the soundtrack of Jean Ledrut that makes use of both original atmospheric parts and adaptations from Tomaso Albinoni (Adagio in G minor). There are also some jazzy tracks (played by the great jazz pianist as well as composer Martial Solal) that fit beautifully. Edition of 500.
