A haunting score for Luchino Visconti's film adaptation of the short story by Thomas Mann – set to a range of classical themes from Mahler, Beethoven, and Mussorgsky – which made the soundtrack quite a hit on the classical crossover world too! The music is conducted by Franco Mannino, who also extrapolates some of the themes in more contemporary arrangements with his orchestrations – and the work is performed by Accademia Di Santa Cecilia, with performances by soprano Mascia Predit, pianist Claudio Gizzi, and contralto Lucretia West.
