The Sensational Sounds of Italian Cinema
Saturday, October 12, 2013
Perhaps inspired by the dramatic emotions of Italian opera, the wide and wild world of Italian film music is particularly expressive and colorful. Composers of great imagination like Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota have set the bar high for their fellow Italians, and their example seems to have nurtured a national inclination to exciting, expressive eccentricity.
David Garland presents highlights from scores by Morricone, Rota, Piero Piccioni, Roberto Nicolosi, Mario Nascimbene, Carlo Rustichelli, Bruno Nicolai, Giovanni Fusco, and many others.
