Francesco de Luca/Alessandro Forti's La Madre
16-Jul-2014 - Rai Trade has released the score for La Madre. The story: in a desperate attempt to throw the hanging evil off her son's life – a priest in the south of Italy, a woman follows with anxiety and trepidation the evolution of the feelings that overwhelm the soul of the young man, trying to convince him to give up his love for a woman and to respect that tacit commitment to which he was bound since he was a child when she, poor maid widow, wanted to be the mother of a priest. The agony of the man, torn between passion and faith, will clash with the morbid obsessions of the mother. The music is composed by Francesco de Luca and Alessandro Forti.
The score is available as download from Amazon.com, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.

Claude Bolling/Eric Demarsan's Les Passagers
14-Jul-2014 - Music Box Records has released for the first time on CD two scores written for Serge Leroy's Les Passagers that of Claude Bolling which came to replace the music originally composed by Éric Demarsan. Though this phenomenon of replacing scores is common in the United States, it is rarer in Europe. Regarding Les Passagers, Éric Demarsan composed his music around the child, an essential character in the story, and of his relationship with his new father “pretty hip to his style.” With Claude Bolling, the main theme of the film became a jazz lullaby on piano to a nonchalant tempo, supplemented by simple bass and guitar, then relayed to a dynamic string ensemble underlying the cheerful and tranquil stretches of their trip. By contrast, the scenes of suspense generated by the chase with the van are represented by oppressive string movements and saxophone.

La Califfa (1970) stars Romy Schneider and Ugo Tognazzi in a forbidden romance with a more contemporary setting.The story follows the romance of an industrialist and the widow of a worker who used to work in his factory. Morricone’s thematically rich score features his favorite musical collaborators (Edda dell’Orso, Alessandro Alessandroni and I Cantori Moderni) for an emotional rollercoaster that’s much better-known than the film it’s attached to. La Monaca Di Monza (1969) is widely credited as one of the cornerstones of the nunsploitation subgenre which bloomed in the 1970s. The film is about a nun who starts a forbidden romance with an Italian nobleman. Set in the tumultuous 17th century, the film features a brief but passionate Morricone score, highlighted by a tragic romantic theme, a lovely pastoral theme for the couple’s child and Baroque-flavored action cues for the Spanish pursuers.
