What would film be without music? Music conveys all that which images cannot. The importance of a soundtrack can sometimes even transcend that of images and stories, and great directors often build the entire structure of their masterpiece around a score – the themes in this album are evidence of this.
There have been numerous masterpieces in Italian cinema that have influenced filmmakers around the world and we continue to distinguish ourselves in this art. This project is a tribute to the great Italian cinema which has contributed to raising global awareness of our country and that has maintained a tradition of excellence. Equally distinct is the cast of musicians in this album: Rosario Giuliani on sax, Luciano Biondi ni on the accordion, Enzo Pietropaoli on the double bass and Michele Rabbia on acoustic and electronic drums.
A contemporary music point of view which never betrays the melodies of these unforgettable themes yet presents them with a new force and vitality, demonstrating their immortality and constantly surprising the listener with the fresh innovativeness of the proposed versions. Unforgettable themes from unforgettable movies, such as 8 e mezzo, Once Upon A Time in America and Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, by the iconic composers Nino Rota ed Ennio Morricone.
On top of these themes, two original tracks by Rosario Giuliani and Luciano Biondini (Bianco e Nero and Wh at is there what is not) which confirms the narrative force of these two incredible musicians and composers.
