Ennio Morricone's La Califfa/La Monaca Di Monza
31-May-2014 - Quartet Records presents a new, remastered edition of two Ennio Morricone scores from 1969/1970, written for movies featuring strong female protagonists.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.
