Adventurous. Horrifying. Sensual. The music of Italian cult movies performed by an all-star orchestra.
Italy can claim credits to some of the greatest and most influential movie soundtracks ever. From spaghetti westerns to psychedelic animations, ‘giallo’ horror flicks to 70s cop films, the music continues to inspire everybody from Quentin Tarantino to Gnarls Barkley to Mike Patton. To celebrate this heritage, composer Massimo Nunzi has transcribed and adapted the movie soundtracks from the original recordings . An outstanding group of musicians, including veterans Dino Piana and Silvano Chimenti as well as their younger counterparts Fabrizio Bosso and Daniele Tittarelli, will super-collide in the Auditorium Parco della Musica concert hall as part of a 52-person orchestra. They’ll perform pieces by seminal composers such as Ennio Morricone, Piero Umiliani and Goblin – with arrangements that nod to the modern day sounds that those masters have influenced, plus breathtaking live visuals by Luca Barcellona and Sean Martin that put a brand new spin on the original cinematic masterpieces.
