Nino Rota: La dolce vita: Sources of the Creative Process (Composer's Workshop) (English and Italian Edition)
Nino Rota: La dolce vita: Sources of the
This volume includes an introductory study placing the collaboration of Fellini and Rota on La Dolce Vita in context and illustrating the compositional process, taking into account the intermediary phase of the short scores. Facsimile reproductions of a rich cross-section of sources, each accompanied by critical commentary, form a major part of this book. Non-musical documents such as letters between Rota and publishers concerning the alleged plagiarism of Kurt Weill as well as press cuttings make it possible to reconstruct some episodes in the composition and reception of Rota's music. Notebooks containing Rota's first verbal and musical annotations concerning La Dolce Vita and manuscripts comprising the definitive version of the score, are accompanied by cases of re-orchestration, re-elaborations of single episodes and piano reductions which will shed new light on the reception of Rota's music independently of the Fellini film.

Riccardo Muti Conducts Italian Masters
Riccardo Muti Conducts Italian
The ever-more comprehensive Sony Classical Masters series is pleased to announce ten new releases. Ranging from symphony cycles to solo piano music, these budget-priced box sets celebrate some of the leading musicians of recent times. During Riccardo Muti s 19-year tenure as La Scala s music director, his relationship with the Filarmonica della Scala extended beyond the opera pit. The seven-CD set Riccardo Muti conducts Italian Masters celebrates their shared Italian heritage with a mixture of much-loved Verdi overtures, modern classics from Nino Rota ( uniformly stunning AllMusic Guide) and enticing works from the turn of the century by the likes of Casella, Martucci and Busoni (on an album successful in every respect , according to Gramophone). Busoni s Turandot Suite (like the orchestral works also released here by operatic composers Ponchielli, Catalani and Puccini) is perfectly suited to an orchestra and conductor at home in both dramatic and symphonic repertoires. How is it possible for so attractive, witty and artful a work to lay neglected for so long? enthused Gramophone.

Essential Nino Rota Film Music Collection
Nino Rota's The Godfather Trilogy: A Film Score Guide (Film Score Guides Book 9)
Nino Rota's The Godfather Trilogy: A Film Score
Released in 1972, 1974, and 1990 respectively, Francis Ford Coppola's three-part saga is one of the greatest artistic accomplishments (and financial successes) in the history of Hollywood cinema. The latest in Scarecrow's Film Score Guides series, Nino Rota's The Godfather Trilogy: A Film Score Guide discusses the events that led to the realization of the three films and studies and analyzes their music. Sciannameo reexamines The Godfather Trilogy from a variety of perspectives, with special focus on the music Rota composed to bind together approximately nine hours of cinematic narrative. Probing Rota's formation as a musician amidst the cultural climate established by Italian Fascism, Sciannameo examines Rota's initial stylistic adherence to the Mussolini-dictated or inspired concept of Italianness and then his return to a more congenial 19th-century formulaic vocabulary. Sciannameo considers Rota's involvement with cinema and his collaboration with many celebrated directors, such as Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini, Franco Zeffirelli, and Coppola, and deals with the sensitive issues of cultural analysis vis-à-vis the Mafia as a concept embedded within the Italian-American community. The book also discusses the sound of the Godfather films, describing and analyzing the musica...

Nino Rota: Music, Film and Feeling
Nino Rota: Music, Film and
Nino Rota wrote some of the loveliest and most beloved of all film music – The Godfather, The Leopard, the Zeffirelli Shakespeares, nearly all of Fellini and more than 140 popular Italian movies. Yet his music doesn't quite work the way we've come to assume music in film works: it doesn't seek to draw us in and identify, nor to overwhelm and excite us. In itself, its pretty but reticent melodies, its at once comic and touching rhythms, and in its relation to what's on screen, Rota's music is close and affectionate towards characters and events but still held back, not detached but ironically attached. This book gives a detailed account of Rota's aesthetic, suggesting it as a new approach to how we understood both film music and feeling and film more broadly. In the process it also provides a first full account in English of his life and work, linking it to notions of plagiarism and pastiche, genre and convention, irony and narrative. Rota's practice is related to some of the major ways music is used in film, such as the motif, musical reference, underscoring and the difference between music in and music outside the film's fictional world, showing the way that Rota both conforms to and undermines the standard understanding of these. There is a section considering the issue of qu...

Rota: Symphonies No. 1 & 2
Double Lives: Film Composers in the Concert Hall (Routledge Research in Music)
Double Lives: Film Composers in the Concert Hall
Double Lives: Film Composers in the Concert Hall is a collection of fifteen essays dealing with ‘iconic’ film composers who, perhaps to the surprise of many fans of film music, nevertheless maintained lifelong careers as composers for the concert hall. Featured composers include Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Franz Waxman, Miklós Rózsa, Bernard Herrmann, Nino Rota, Leonard Rosenman, and Ennio Morricone. Progressing in chronological order, the chapters offer accounts of the various composers’ concert-hall careers and descriptions of their concert-hall styles. Each chapter compares the composer’s music for films with his or her music for the concert hall, and speculates as to how music in one arena might have affected music in the other. For each composer discussed in the book, complete filmographies and complete works lists are included as appendices. Double Lives: Film Composers in the Concert Hall is accessible for scholars, researchers, and general readers with an interest in film music and concert music.
