The Four Musketeers Movie Suite

The Four Musketeers Suite - 1974
Music by Lalo Schifrin

This 1974 sequel to the previous year's The Three Musketeers, follows a similar path musically with many period instruments such as a harpsichord and the feel of medieval France. Although Mr. Schifrin scored an interesting piece with lush strings and powerful moments of action there is no actual main theme presented. What we end up with is a movie suite of loosely connected musical moments that are entertaining, but more like a visit to a French concert of sorts. With a timing of 19:02 I hope you enjoy. -MJ
