The Wonderful World of Nino Rota, Part I
Saturday, November 26, 2011
Nino Rota's centenary is on December 3rd. The great Italian composer was a master of moods, from the outsized emotions of "The Godfather" to the jaded insouciance of "La Dolce Vita."
Rota developed a unique sound for his collaborations with director Federico Fellini, but there are many facets to his output, and David Garland presents the first of two programs (the second part will air Dec. 3, 2011) which display Rota's versatility. This program features "La Dolce Vita," "The Godfather," "La Strada," "War and Peace" and more.
