Italian Soundtracks, the new album by maestro Giuseppe Grazioli together with the Verdi Orchestra of Milan, is a heterogeneous collection of composers who have written for the cinema, born from the idea of highlighting an Italian method to film music, an unmistakable “sound” that – as Grazioli himself states – has been able to draw from the Italian musical heritage by seizing a legacy left by Vivaldi, Donizetti, Verdi, Puccini, and more.
Stelvio Cipriani, Piero Piccioni, Alessandro Cicognini, Ennio Morricone, Armando Trovajoli, Angelo Francesco Lavagnino, Goffredo Petrassi, Fiorenzo Carpi, Riz Ortolani are the composers featured on Italian Soundtracks. They only partially represent the luminous constellation of Italian composers who have linked their name to cinema. They have a very serious oeuvre, have written operas and symphonies, and their soundtracks have increased the fame of the films themselves.
Italian Soundtracks is a journey into the history of Italian cinema through emblematic films to which each composer has imprinted a peculiar and recognizable style, such as the use of Morricone’s electric guitar in the “Clan dei Siciliani” or Cipriani’s oboe in “Anonimo veneziano “. “Rethinking today, after more than half a century, to the sound of Italian cinema in its golden age,” reads the notes written by Emilio Sala, “is a challenge to which one is encouraged by listening to the songs contained in this record “.
