Michel Legrand has become one of my favorite composers, this love theme from the underrated 1973 Three Musketeers being one of my favorite pieces of his. It bespeaks of a kind of romance that aches as much as it exhilarates. It especially gives the doomed relationship between D’Artagnan and Constance a sense of poignancy from the beginning, the sense that it will one day be nothing but a sweet, sad memory.
Oh jeez, I’m getting a bit cheesy. Still, what’s life without a little cheese?
