The Invalid - Pino Donaggio - La Buca (CD)

The composer employing quite grand and forceful sounding brass based themes underlined by at times chaotic percussion to relay adventure, excitement and action, in fact at times the music sounded more like it was from an American made B western movie rather than a spaghetti but nonetheless an impressive work.

Section two tracks 2 through to 4 are taken from the comedy western I DUE GRINGOS DEL TEXAS, now you remember I said that this sub genre of the spaghetti western either worked or fell flat on its face, well this I suppose can be said for the music for these productions, on this occasion the music is by Carlo Savina, and in my humble opinion it is probably not one of the The Invalid - Pino Donaggio - La Buca (CD) best efforts for the genre. Three tracks are included two of which are thankfully very brief.

Again another candidate for having just a few tracks from a score rather than the entire soundtrack on CD, surprisingly the entire score was issued a couple of years back now, but its not one that collectors were exactly clambering for. Bacalov of course is better known for his score to DJANGO the vocal The Invalid - Pino Donaggio - La Buca (CD) of which is also included on this compilation disc two track number 30 performed by Roberto Fia.

This I think is the only negative about this particular volume within the compilation, too much Bacalov cant be a bad thing I hear you say, well at times the originality of his music does wear a little thin and if one listens to his western scores in particular the composer does shall we say re-cycle certain cues within various projects and cues from DJANGO turn up in QUIEN SABE etc.

Might have served the continuity and listening experience better if DRG had mixed it up a little and taken some Bacalov off two and put it on three and then the Morricone from three and put on two, if you see what I mean? Really volume three is a little ordinary as most of the tracks on this compact disc have already been within other compilations etc.

The BEAT record company was and still is one of the busiest recording labels in Italy and it was along with the aforementioned labels one of the first soundtrack specialist labels to go into business. De Masi is well represented within this compilation and no I am not complaining as his music is always exquisite and entertaining and never repetitive.

The series of compact discs from DRG are accompanied by eye catching art work and informative notes volumes 1 and 2 have notes by Didier c Duetsch and volumes 3 and 4 contain essays and info penned by John Bender. Excellent review of some of the best compilation CDs ever produced.

For many of us collectors these were the only tracks available until the individual film scores were later released. I would tell any one interested in the genre to pick up these CDs, if you can find them, as it will give you a well rounded sample of several differend styles The Invalid - Pino Donaggio - La Buca (CD) music from some of the best composers of the genre.

Not all the Italian composers copied the Morricone style and these CDs will bring that statement home. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. Both scores are vibrant, original and filled with outstanding themes and although the latter example does have within it some clumsy sounding comic orientated music it still remains entertaining.

Volume one of this DRG compilation is certainly an entertaining 2 hours plus of music taken from the Cinevox vaults, which contains something for everyone. Volume two is a selection of music that has been gathered from the archives of EMI General Music which was another The Invalid - Pino Donaggio - La Buca (CD) that was particularly active in the release of soundtracks from the late ,s through to the early ,s.

This edition of the soundtrack is a greatly expanded version and contains nearly 90 minutes of music. A double compact disc release this is a must have item for fans of Morricone and also Italian giallo fans. Presented wonderfully with eye catching and colourful art work and informative notes by Andrea Morandi of CIAK magazine. How did you become involved on this project? I was a student who actively participated in the occupation of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters.

When formed a group of filmmakers who wanted to witness the events of the student movement I went there and it was quite natural that I were to take care of the musical part.

What size orchestra did you utilize for this score and is the vocalist Edda Dell Orso? The orchestra was made up of a group of strings — 12 violins, 4 violas, 4 cellos and two double basses — plus a small group of woodwinds and percussion, and, if I remember correctly, a piano.

You were born in Rome in ,at what age did you begin to become attracted to music and were any of your family musical at all? I have always been attracted to music, at three years of age I began to play with a small toy accordion. My parents were amateur lovers of music, but almost exclusively to music read, as it was then. Today we would say Pop. What musical education did you receive and were there any specific areas of music that you concentrated upon?

As a boy I was fascinated only by the so-called classical music, as an adult I began to get interested in jazz and pop music. Your music is always original and innovative, are there any composers or artists that have had a profound influence upon you? I will try to answer, I think mostly composers such as Ravel. Benigni was able to move me, to involve me, to make me understand the meaning of the film, and I drove magnificently to find solutions for a musical drama that were at times difficult and delicate.

You worked with Federico Fellini, was he actively involved with the musical score and how it should be placed etc? Fellini with collaborators, with the musician was as a medium: you had on the road so irrational, emotional, almost incosciente. Poi work in his films but also required a lot of effort on the professional level, of the trade. As far as I understand, the composer Manos Hajidakis gave teachings on the orchestration.

Do you think that the orchestration represents an important part in the process of composition? But there are excellent musicians who get insulted by one or more arrangers: everyone has his habits, his way.

Vocals by Katina Ranieri. I was simply looking for all the soundtracks from those countless obscure Italian Westerns that where made in the 60s and 70s.

But how to find them, or worse, the titles? This collection, as well as Part 2, 3, and 4, hosts them probably all. It also has an extensive booklet with very good info on the music, as well as the movies that made them, or is it the other way around? This set is simply the best Italian Western music money can buy, and should be famous and sold-out!

I recommend to buy all 4 sets! There is hardly a single "pretty good" track here! This continues the tradition of a few better known tracks, such as the theme to Django and the Hellbenders, as well as plenty of lesser known film scores, in U. For those of you keeping score, this is my second purchase in an attempt to locate music from Red Dead Revolver; I am happy to say that music from "A Man Called King" and "Death on High Hill" fit that bill. This is a needed item for any kind of Spaghetti Western Music Collector.

Any kind of fan of the Italian film genre will apreciate this album. This contains all the components for a quintessential spaghetti western CD: songs with the high, hauntingly beautiful backgrounds, clumsily translated lyrics, and of course, the inescapable Ennio Morricone.
