Stelvio Cipriani's Second Spring
12-Sep-2019 - Chris' Soundtrack Corner presents for the first time the complete soundtrack to Second Spring (Der Zweite Frühling). The entire score to Second Spring was a mix of original music and library tracks by the Italian composer Stelvio Cipriani. He had actually composed a fairly extensive original score for the film, but, unaccountably, most of it was replaced by library tracks for the film's final mix, with only a few cues from the original score remaining in the film. As a result, the film score is quite a curiosity; its soundtrack remains effective and quite lovely, with both the previously-used tracks and the bits of original cues left in the film providing a melodic wash of romantic fragrance and appealing soft jazz in the composer's finest form. Chris' Soundtrack Corner is pleased to make the Second Spring soundtrack available, especially its previously unheard tracks, for the first time.
