Olsen-Banden [Complete edition vol. 1 – 3 cd Box Set] (Bent Fabricius-Bjerre)

34.99

No series of films has had the same impact in Denmark as the “Olsen-Banden” films (English: The Olsen Gang).

Looking at the best-selling films in Danish Cinema history, Olsen-Banden claims 4 of the 5 five top spots (1st, 2nd, 3rd & 5th), and the series of 14 films are still some of the most popular movies in Denmark, almost 50 years after the first chapter saw the light of day in 1968.

Almost as popular, and certainly every bit as iconic, is the music.
Composed by the legendary Bent Fabricius-Bjerre, the main theme remains, without a doubt, the most popular piece of film music ever in Denmark.
But it is not only the main theme that stands out. Fabricius-Bjerres score is a key factor in all of the 14 films.
Switching effortlessly from melodic to suspenseful, from humerous to haunting, one element remains the same throughout: The unique sound that Fabricius-Bjerre created for Olsen-Banden.

A mixture of Dixieland Jazz, performed so brilliantly by Papa Bues Viking Jazz Band, and score performed by some of the most well-known Danish musicians including. Niels Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Alex Riel, Jesper Thilo and the Copenhagen Philharmonics, as well as Canadian born harmonica player Tommy Reilly (who also perfomed the well known theme from Pinchcliff Grand Prix), the music never ceases to surprise and delight the audience.

Sadly, the music has never been available outside of the films, and the tapes were thought by many, including the composer and production company, to be long gone.

It is therefore with immense delight, that we are finally able to present, the first ever release of the original scores for the first 7 films in the series on 3 cd’s
