Notes & Reviews:

The fact that Nino Rota wrote many remarkable works for chamber ensemble, orchestra and the ballet has always taken a back seat to his enormous fame as a composer of film music. Rota studied composition and conducting, following the advice of Arturo Toscanini, at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia between 1931 and 1932. During this time, he discovered the great Hollywood films of the period and was equally impressed with the music of George Gershwin. These, no doubt, had a strong influence on his style and interest in film scoring when he returned to Italy.
