Composed by Georges Delerue, a French composer specialised in film music , Le Le Concerto De L'Adieu is a piece for Violin and Piano accompaniment. Edited by Roberto Cani, it lasts 9 minutes. This concerto is part of the original soundtrack of “Dien Bien Phu” (1992) by Pierre Schoendoerffer.
It is used in the film for a scene which represents the loss of Dien Bien Phu: a concert is going to happen and while the music starts, some sporadic images of the battle are shown. The concert finishes with the audience applauding and the next scene shows some soldiers having their last drink, knowing the battle is already lost. The concerto goes through different phases to express what is seen through the images, alternating melancholy, desperation, desolation and the feeling of lost power.
