Album Remarks & Appraisals:

All About Jazz - Chris May
Nino Rota was a composer who stretched the imagination, though he was not, by any stretch of the imagination, a jazz composer. Classically trained, at the Milan conservatoire and Rome's Santa Cecilia academy, Rota composed ten operas, five ballets and a great amount of orchestral and chamber music. He counted Igor Stravinsky and Arturo Toscanini among his friends and admirers, and was enough of a modernist to include Arnold Schoenberg's twelve-tone method in his palette.

But Rota is best remembered for his work for the cinema. And there is a lot of it. From the 1930s until his death in 1979, aged 67, he wrote scores for over one hundred and fifty films, among them landmark works by the Italian directors Luchino Visconti, Franco Zeffirelli and, from 1952 until the late 1970s, Federico Fellini. These include the scores for Fellini's Lo Sceicco Bianco, I Vitelloni, La Strada, Il Bidone, Le Notti Di Cabiria, La Dolce Vita, Otto Y Messo, 8½, Giuletta Degli Spiriti, Amarcord and Il Casanova Di Fellini. The bond between Fellini and Rota was so strong that, when Fellini died in 1993, his widow had Rota's "Improvviso Dell'Angelo" performed at the funeral. ... read more...
