Don’t Look Now


spotify
Music by Pino Donaggio

In February 2017 Time Out magazine polled actors, producers, directors and movie mavens to create a list of the top 100 British films of all time. Forty-four years after its release, Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now was a comfortable winner. Defined by them as, “a movie whose every glorious frame is bursting with meaning, emotion and mystery, and which stands as the crowning achievement of one of Britain’s true iconoclasts and masters of cinema”. Based on a Daphne Du Maurier short story, Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland play a couple who travel to Venice after the tragic death of their daughter. Pino Donaggio as well as composing the score, performed a substantial portion of it himself. He played the piano pieces, despite the fact that he was not very accomplished at playing the piano. These pieces are usually associated with Christine in the film, and Roeg wanted them to have an innocent sound reminiscent of a little girl learning to play the piano. Donaggio claims that since he was not very good at playing the piano, the pieces had an unsure style to them, perfect for the effect they were trying to capture. The song – “I Colori Di Dicembere” – was recorded by Iva Zanicchi and released on her 1974 album “Amare, Non Amare”. It is not heard in the film and was only included on the Italian pressing of the soundtrack where it was released as “A Venezia… Un Dicembre Rosso Shocking”. This new edition of Donaggio’s classic score reinstates the song and reverts to the original track sequence and edit.

The Essential Thomas Newman


spotify
Performed by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra

Now well into his fourth decade as a film composer, Thomas Newman is rightly considered one of the most distinctive voices in film music. From the outset he forged his own stylistic path, one of abstract soundscapes, precise emotional textures and graceful harmonies. It’s a palette the composer has stuck with throughout his career, and while some of his tools might have necessarily moved with the times, Thomas Newman has remained true to himself as an artist. A modern master who has created a signature sound that has endured for over thirty years. Amorphous, organic, and multi-dimensional and, despite the years, it remains as fresh today as it ever did. This collection of new recordings by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra brings together in a 2CD set the very best themes from the accomplished composer.

Terence Blanchard: Music For Film

amazon itunes spotify
Brussels Philharmonic conducted by Dirk Brossé

World-renowned trumpeter, brass player, composer, band leader and five time Grammy Award winner, Terence Blanchard is the most prolific jazz musician to ever compose for motion pictures. As a film composer, Blanchard has more than fifty scores to his credit. He gives a voice to those who have none. There can be no better or more appealing description of the artist born in New Orleans on 13th March 1962. Since the 1980s, his unique combination of tradition and innovation has turned him into one of the giants of jazz. Every year since 1982 Film Fest Gent has honoured many of the legends of film composing and this year their spotlight falls on Terence Blanchard. Under the baton of Dirk Brossé, the Brussels Philharmonic perform some of the very best music of Blanchard’s scoring career.

“Writing films scores can be very rewarding and inspiring because of the many creative possibilities presented on any project. Being recognized, in itself, is the prize most of us yearn for, never looking beyond that because we are the background and one part of many that come together to tell a story. So for my work to be singled out in such a huge fashion is truly a magnificent honour. I’m humbled and excited all at once to be a part of this celebration and would like to thank all who made this happen.”.

Puppet on a Chain

Music Composed and Arranged by Piero Piccioni

A masterpiece of suspense and no-holds barred action, Puppet on a Chain was adapted from Alistair Maclean’s 1969 novel and released in 1971. Directed by Geoffrey Reeve and starring a granite-jawed Sven-Bertil Taube, the film’s signature boat chase (lasting eight minutes!) along the canals of Amsterdam was rumoured to be the inspiration for the similar sequence in Bond’s Live and Let Die.

The action is underpinned by Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Piccioni’s blistering Hammond-heavy score. Piccioni composed around 300 soundtracks over four decades, but was most prolific during the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, when he was sought out by directors including Francesco Rosi, Mario Monicelli, Alberto Lattuada, Luchino Visconti, Bernardo Bertolucci, Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica and Lina Wertmuller. A talented self-taught jazz musician, Piccioni’s soundtrack to Puppet on a Chain retains effortless style, portraying a decadent 1970’s Amsterdam overrun with drugs and organised crime.
