Alessandro Cicognini's Stazione Termini/The Black Orchid
16-Apr-2012 - Disques CinéMusique has released the CD premiere of two vintage original soundtrack albums. Terminal Station(Stazione Termini)(1953) focuses on the last encounter at Rome's central train station of a remorseful married woman and her Italian lover. Alessandro Cicognini provided all the sweeping lyricism required to highlight this intimate and rather static drama. Martin Ritt’s drama The Black Orchid(1958) tells of the efforts of a widow and a widower to start a new life together with the approbation of their troublesome children. The music by Cicognini recalls Rose's Italian origins. It takes the form of suites that were obviously rerecorded or at least remixed for the original stereophonic album.
