"THE SHEPHERD" Music by ARTHUR VALENTIN GRÓSZ
The music for THE SHEPHERD was composed by Hungarian young composer Arthur Valentin Grósz, who created a score that reflects the many emotions of the film's story-line, it underlines only too well the sense of desperation, hopelessness and devastation felt by some of the characters and also supports and enhances the narrative of the film. The music is poignant and thematic in places with subtle and affecting musical interludes that become mesmerizing and haunting. The composer employs solo piano, cymbal-om and a small string ensemble to fashion the score, he also utilises woodwind solos and violin to create an atmospheric and effective sound that works well with the images on screen and is just as appealing when listened to as just stand alone music, it has a folk sound about it, with interesting orchestration that makes it even more attractive. Giving a greater depth and adding a tense but hopeful persona to the proceedings.
The CD is limited to 300 Copies. Not to be missed!
"VIKING WOMEN AND THE SEA SERPENT" Music by ALBERT GLASSER
The music was written by prolific composer ALBERT GLASSER (THE MONSTER MAKER, THE CISKO KID RETURNS, THE GAY AMIGO, GRAN CANYON among others) who composed a big score fitting a class A Hollywood film of the Golden Age. The CD contains all the surviving music for the film, which is most of it, restored and presented on CD, or any other format for the matterm for the first time ever 63 years after being recorded!
The CD is strictly limited to 500 copies. A Must for all classic sword and sandal and Albert Glasser Fans!
"L'UOMO EUROPEO" Music by FRANCESCO De MASI
De Masi's music was of quintessential importance to Quilici's films, no wonder the director worked with De Masi on a staggering almost 200 Documentaries and various feature films, including Dagli Appennini alle Ande (1959) and Ti Koyo e il Suo Pescecane (1962). The disc was recorded at Edipan Studios, the studio of Maestro Bruno Nicolai who also performed the piano parts in a sublime way. A limited edition run LP was also released in 1980 also on Maestro NICOLAI's Edipan label. 40 years later this beautiful gem comes back to life on KRONOS RECORDS and once again it is a limited run.
The CD is a limited edition of 300 copies and is not going to last long. A True Gem!
"CIVILTÀ DEL MEDITERRANEO" Music by BRUNO NICOLAI
The score for the Italian television docu-series CIVILTÀ DEL MEDITERRANEO is a delicate and melodic one, with composer Bruno Nicolai employing sensitive strings and light floating woods that are accompanied by harpsichord and subtle percussion. The combination of this instrumentation creates a pleasing and haunting work, that must be among the higher-ranking scores by this much under applauded composer.
The CD is a limited edition of 300 copies and is not going to last very long. A True Gem!
