The Wonderful World of Nino Rota, Part 2

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, December 03, 2011

Nino Rota was born 100 years ago today (Dec. 3, 2011). 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 second of two programs (the first aired last week) which display Rota's versatility.

This program features "Amarcord," "Il Casanova di Federico Fellini," "The Leopard," and more.

This show is preceded by a live broadcast from Carnegie Hall, and will begin after the conclusion of that concert, which may be after 9 pm.
