A beautiful package – the three albums in the Pittura Moderna series by composer Egisto Macchi – all dedicated to modern art in the 20th Century
, with individual tracks that are based either on a specific artist, or a style of work – all with musical references to match! There's some moments that are strongly in the territory of Macchi's more avant, outside compositions – those darker tones that have made him the stuff of legend over the years – with odd tones, offbeat woodwinds, and lots of unusual soundshapes that are almost visual in the way they come across – clearly a great illustration of Egisto's genius in scoring. The whole thing's very different than you'd expect if you only know the more playful or funky sides of sound library material – and each track is relatively long, with amazing use of instruments that include piano, vibes, saxophone, and cello. Titles include "Mondrian", "Kandinsky", "Impressionismo", "Chagall", "Optical", "Arte Cinetica", "Lucio Fontana", "Expressionismo Pragmatico", and "Pop Art 1a Parte".
