This autumn, Patrick Fiori will release a new album to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the very first film score, back in 1908.

“L’assassinat du Duc de Guise” is said to be the very first film featuring a piece of music, especially written by famous French composer Camille Saint-Saëns for the occasion, the website of Fiori states. Patrick has chosen a number of very well-known scores from French and international movies for his forthcoming album.

Noone knows exactly the track-listing of the forthcoming CD and thishas caused quite a lot of speculation byFiori’s fans on the artist’s blog. Strings parts of the songs were recently recorded in Budapest.

Meanwhile, Patrick Fiori is still touring. Last week, he was in Québec (Canada) and on August 31st, he was part of the closing show of the French-speaking film festival in Angoulême. Next September 21 st, the artist will perform in a small town, Brue-Auriac (South-East of France), together with fellow musicians Michael Jones and Jacques Veneruso, to raise funds for the national day against cystic fibrosis. Later this year, he will sing in famous Parisian concert hall “La Salle Gaveau”, with the partnership of French radio station “Chérie FM” and his diary also includes a date in Moscow, in December.With “Mama Corsica”, Patrick Fiori represented France in the Eurovision Song Contest and placed 4th in 1993.
