Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a superb collection of short- often very short- items from key films scored by Nino Rota. It can feel a bit fragmented and you may think that the smaller number of longer items featured in the alternative recordings by Gianluigi Gelmetti and Riccardo Muti are more satisfying. Nevertheless, it is a splendid collection and gives a representative selection of the most well known part of Rota's vast output( 158 films) . The only major omission seems to be his three film scores for Luchino Visconti. Rota obviously had a great feeling for pastiche and this enables him to create affecting emotion and ironic detachment in turn (for example, the La Strada or La Dolce Vita suites). He also had a real ability to describe physical movement in music ( e.g. The Clowns and any number of other items). You also notice that he recycled his own material at times ( for example, the same refrain crops up in both Satyricon and Roma). The playing of the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra is stylish, energetic and wholly idiomatic, whether in the circus- inspired Fellini pieces (like Eight and a Half) or the more symphonic(like Romeo and Juliet). The discs are recorded in very good refurbished digital sound - spacious and atmospheric. The total playing time for both discs is 110 minutes. If you already have the single disc Silva Screen Rota selection you don't necessarily need this one as it duplicates all of the items but with more Romeo and Juliet and Godfather pieces plus the additional Fellini scores ( the sound seems marginally fuller on this collection). If you like the sound of these items this collection can be whole - heartedly recommended and it is one that I play very regularly.

Perfect recording, a collection of very intense and emotional pieces, not a simple copy of assorted soundtracks. In my opinion, a must for all Rota lovers.
