Heavenly sounds from Mario Nascimbene – one of the more compelling soundtracks we've heard from the Italian peplum years! The music floats along beautifully – often light woodwinds, or light chorus passages to handle the melody – and some spare percussion moving quietly to create just the hint of rhythm. The approach moves far from some of the more dramatic cliches of the genre, and comes across with a sensitivity that's really striking – a lot more than you might expect! CD features 17 tracks from the film – all beautifully remastered. (Limited edition – with bonus download card.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kronos (Austria), 1989. New Copy

I Magliari
Beat (Italy), 1959. New Copy
An excellent jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – captured at a great early point in his film career, when he was still mixing in lots of elements from his work in jazz as well! The style here echoes some of the French jazz soundtracks of the new wave – and the tunes often sport ... CD
